JOBS OF THE FUTURE
a virtual event series featuring thought-leaders on post-pandemic tech jobs and careers
A conversation and Q&A with Hansel Ong (Software Manager III, Amazon)
Amazon currently has more than 10,000 open positions for software engineers in the U.S and recently announced they are planning to hire more than 55,000 people for corporate and technology positions to keep up with demand in retail, the cloud and advertising, among other businesses.
Join us for a special conversation and Q&A session with Hansel Ong (Software Manager III, Amazon) where we’ll explore how software engineering is evolving at Amazon and the scalable technology solutions they’re developing over the next 3 years to solve the world’s most complex problems.
In addition to learning about the qualifications for being a software engineer at Amazon and what you need to know (and avoid!) to ace the application process and interview, we will explore:
- Amazon’s new leadership principals;
- The key products Amazon is developing over the next 3-5 years and how software engineers driving at the company are driving innovation;
- How automation will change the role of software engineers and other technical positions over the next several years;
- The real culture of software engineering at Amazon (from diversity and inclusion, to work ethics, to day-to-day operations);
- How job-seekers can create a mindful long-term career roadmap for working at Amazon that aligns with their goals and values;
- How Amazon’s new Best Fit program is streamlining and simplifying the application process for software engineers and allowing them to be considered for thousands of jobs across the company;
- A day in the life of a Software Engineer Manager at Amazon and what it’s like to have a long-term career at the company (over 10 years!).
We will have plenty of time for an audience Q&A with Hansel and will be sharing information on how to learn (in much more detail) how to apply for engineering positions at Amazon.
