AWS Lambda’s goal is nothing less than to simplify and improve the experience of computing in the cloud for every developer on the planet, from startups to the largest Fortune 100 companies. Serverless computing is rapidly changing how every... company thinks about building and delivering software solutions, and Lambda is leading this industry wide effort.

Our Team

AWS Lambda is growing in Dublin, Ireland and our goal is to continue to define the Serverless revolution. In the Lambda team you will be joining a team where the entire development of the service occurs in Dublin. You will have the opportunity to impact the service roadmap in a meaningful way as the existing team team has done for recent deliverables like AWS Lambda Runtime Management Controls, AWS Lambda Extensions, AWS Lambda Container Support plus a host of new Language runtimes. You will own and implement specific components, build highly available, secure, scalable, distributed, event-driven systems and help to define the system architecture. This is a full-stack development position on a large distributing computing platform.

What does it take to succeed in this role?

You should be comfortable working in an environment dedicated to meeting the expectations and requirements of customers. You should be intellectually curious, always looking to learn and be dedicated to turning the software developers that use Lambda to build modern applications into fans of the service. You should be somebody who aspires to make the team both productive and a fun place to work. Being excited to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives.

On-Call Responsibility

This position involves on-call responsibilities, every builder on Lambda is also an owner. Nobody likes to get paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are well engineered, fault tolerant and meet a high quality bar before the go into production. Our customers expect nothing less. When we do get paged we work together as a team to resolve the root cause of the issue and nobody is left on their own to deal with an operational issue.

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 14 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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future

What you should expect?

If you're excited by defining how modern and future software applications are built and want to help lead from the innovative edge, we guarantee that your work in our team will be ground-breaking and challenging. We’re looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we’ve been building.

Together, we’ll deliver the next generation of industry-leading compute features and help every business from the smallest startups to the largest enterprises run their code in the cloud without the burden of infrastructure or scale (that’s our job). We’ll shape not just our own products, but contribute to the direction of AWS and the serverless industry.
