Slalom is one of AWS’ largest Premier partners, and as a result, we have the opportunity to work on some of the most exciting and interesting challenges our customers face. During your residency, you will have the opportunity to participate in every phase of our industry leading cloud transformation framework helping guide our customers through their cloud migrations.

What You’ll Do 

Focus on building high-quality software as part of a collaborative engineering team. You will build on your core strengths as you continue to enhance your skills by contributing to developing secure software systems. You will be aligned to agile project teams working alongside other talented software engineers and architects to lend your creativity to solving software problems using core development tools and techniques. You will experiment with new technologies and develop skills across the stack, all while contributing to the positive flow of your team. You will share your developing expertise with the community at large through various knowledge-sharing forums. Specifically, you will:

What You’ll Bring 

A hunger for doing and a thirst for learning: As a Software Engineer, your first responsibility will be contributing functioning, validated code to your team.

It is expected that you will be challenged to refine some details of your implementation and be praised on some others. Curiosity will drive you to understand why your check-in broke the build while lending a hand in maintaining the pipeline.
