WHAT DOES A 'SYSDE' DO AT AMAZON?
SysDEs build software to increase operational performance and developer agility. They are DevOps thought leaders in automation and infrastructure of a product or service. Working with customers to understand business impacts, SysDEs identify problems that could arise from technical decisions.
They’re proficient in a broad range of technologies (hardware, software, networking, operating systems) and how these interact with one another in complex systems. Writing code to fix bugs, automating tasks, implementing monitoring, and dealing with infrastructural components within the large scale systems they build, there is no ordinary day for SysDEs.
