Great place to learn, contribute and grow.

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsChallenging problems from real world combined with Amazon scale makes most scalable solutions obsolete in few years.
Pace of development is fast.
Each employee is a leader and an owner. Its great to be among people who are constantly improving things because they want to and not because they are asked to.

ConsOncall support can be bad.
Work life balance, growth, etc - A lot depends on your manager. I am lucky to have a good manager but not everyone is.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to ensure the culture doesnt dilute as you hire more and more new people. Also the hiring bar seems to be going down. Its not as much fun to work with mediocre people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
