A successful systems engineer should be focused on troubleshooting complex system operations, not just on a server level but enterprise wide. You should also have a solid foundation in multiple operating systems, networking and general knowledge of cloud services. You will work with Amazon’s largest and most demanding customers to address specific needs across a full suite of services. You will dive deep into technical issues and work diligently to improve the customer experience.

This position can work out of either the Arlington, VA office or the Seattle, WA office locations.

Arlington, VA:
Our new headquarters is located in Northern Virginia, where Amazon will invest $2.5 billion dollars, occupy 4 million square feet of energy efficient office space, and create at least 25,000 new full-time jobs. Our employees and the neighboring community will also benefit from the associated investments from the Commonwealth including infrastructure updates, public transportation improvements, and new access to Reagan Nation

Seattle, WA:
With direct views of the Space Needle, South Lake Union and the Amazon Spheres. Our employees love being in the heart of the city. With museums, great local food, shopping, and more. Just a walk – or bike ride – away, working at Amazon means the best Seattle has to offer is always right at your fingertips. The Seattle campus also benefits from a variety of public transit options such as Link Light Rail, RapidRide bus lines and the Washington State Ferry System. We are located about 15 miles from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which provides visitors the ability to drive or take the Link Light Rail train directly to our downtown Seattle campus, and within walking distance of Seattle’s infamous Pikes Place Farmers Market.

Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn’t about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.
