For Ellen, the best part of guiding a team is watching them grow.

It’s no secret things move quickly at AWS. Luckily for Ellen Hsu, a Software Development Manager with AWS Elastic Containers, she thrives in this type of environment. “One thing I love about working here is how quickly things change. We evolve very quickly.” She carries this philosophy over to how she leads her team. By consistently nudging her developers outside of their comfort zone, she knows they’re growing in their careers. “Sometimes I’ll save conversations with engineers saying ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘this is too hard’ and then I’ll send it to them 8 months later when their project has launched. It’s a really great way to reflect on and celebrate everything they’ve accomplished.”

It’s my job to find opportunities for the engineers on my team to stretch outside of their comfort zone.

At AWS, engineers own their solutions end to end. This provides a great learning experience for us because we’re exposed to what it takes to build a successful software solution from start to finish.

I find it important to lead with empathy, helping my team become the best versions of themselves and ensure that the type of work and challenges they take on directly contribute to that.

I still find myself learning something new even after four years here, whether it’s learning new technology, learning to manage projects, or learning how to better collaborate with teams across the company.

Odi approaches every day as an opportunity to make a real impact.

What keeps Odi Enaholo, a Sr. Software Development Engineer with AWS Support, interested in his work is being able to build things that makes a difference. “Seeing something you create being used to help a business or industry is extremely satisfying.” When Odi joined AWS five years ago, he was most excited about working with new and experiential cloud technology—tech that other companies weren’t even talking about yet. “Developers have so many different options to solve problems because of the innovation happening here at AWS. It’s really exciting.”

AWS is a massive company, but teams operate as start-ups and can own their destiny.
