Summary


The Amazon Future Engineer was tailored for freshman and Sophmore students doing computer science. My team was well aware of this and gave me a project that accommodated my skills. I was tasked with making a web application and I worked with a co-future engineer intern. Under my teams supervision, I was able to learn the basics of web development and AWS, my project used DynamoDB, Lambda, beanstalk, and other in house Amazon tools. I had weekly 1:1 30 min meetings with my manager and mentor to make sure I was on task and to help me if I was stuck in any way. That was the perfect time to ask questions about anything and they were always willing to help. My team was very nice and all the engineers were very helpful. My code was reviewed by the team every time I had to push and they were very insightful on giving me good coding practices. There were many events for the AFE interns as we were able to go to the Capitol Hill Block Party for free and had our own hackathon with many prizes. We got exclusive AFE intern swag and $100 credit to Amazon labeled merchandise. Amazon also provided an Orca card which can be used on any Bus or Light Rail to get around the city. The city of Seattle is very beautiful and although it may be expensive, Amazon gives a generous stipend and salary.
