At AWS Amplify, we're working to build a set of tools and services that can be used together or on their own, to help front-end web and mobile developers build scalable, full stack applications, powered by AWS. With Amplify, you can configure app backends and connect your app in minutes, deploy static web apps in a few clicks, and easily manage app content outside the AWS console.

Amplify supports popular web frameworks including JavaScript, React, Angular, Vue, Next.js, and mobile platforms including Android, iOS, React Native, Ionic, and Flutter.

We're right at the start of a comprehensive roadmap to deliver the functionality and features our customers are asking for and delight them with functionality they couldn't even imagine. We're passionate about what our customers are building, so we can offer them the right tools to be successful. If you are as passionate as us about app development and providing developers with the latest and greatest tools to build and host their apps, join the AWS Amplify team!

We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have 13 employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally.

Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren€™t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online.
