About Amazon Web Services

Based in Seattle, Amazon Web Services (AWS) runs Amazon’s cloud business, and with annual revenue growing from $25 billion in 2018 to $45 billion in 2020, has been considered the real growth-driver behind Amazon for several years. Always on the lookout for good software engineers, AWS is expressly responsible for cloud computing; advertising and marketing analytics solutions; financial services (banking, payments, capital markets, insurance); game tech software; health care and life services; manufacturing cloud operations; and others.

Pay rates and benefits are commensurate with other divisions in corporate Amazon, but the shining attractor towards working at AWS is the people: Everyone there is a wizard at software engineering—including you. Support, HR, and administrative personnel are sourced from the main Amazon corporation, so basically everyone at AWS is, for lack of a better term, a genius.

The intellectual hothouse that is AWS is nothing if not great for an up-and-coming software engineer with ambition; but you do need to be ambitious and willing to work very hard. The days can be long, but as Business Insider magazine points out, AWS is possibly “one of the most popular workplaces for engineers.”
