Are you a problem solver, explorer, and knowledge seeker - always asking, "What if?"

If so, you may be the new team member we're looking for. Because at SAS, your curiosity matters - whether you're developing algorithms, creating customer experiences, or answering critical questions. Curiosity is our code, and the opportunities here are endless.

What we do

We're the leader in analytics. Through our software and services, we inspire customers around the world to transform data into intelligence. Our curiosity fuels innovation, pushing boundaries, challenging the status quo and changing the way we live.

SAS is moving our development teams and software into the cloud, using Amazon Web Services (AWS), under a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. This is an opportunity to be part of a first of its kind product and service here at SAS! We are looking for a strong, diverse and talented engineer to help us get there.

What you'll do

As a Java Cloud Developer at SAS, you will be a part of an agile team delivering critical services in AWS.

You will:

    Develop code and help provide architectural guidance.
  • Work across the boundaries of development, test, information technology and enterprise hosting to pursue new challenges focused on the Customer Intelligence domain.

  • Work on a team delivering highly scalable, real-time event streaming ingestion and processing services.

What we're looking for

  • You're curious, passionate, authentic, and accountable. These are our values and influence everything we do.

  • Bachelor's degree in statistics, mathematics, computer science, operations research, or a related quantitative field.

  • 2+ years experience developing enterprise-level code.

  • Excellent Java programming skills.

  • Experience with Spring based microservice development.

  • Experience with building REST APIs.

  • Experience with designing scalable and high performing software (high throughput with low latency).

The nice to haves

  • Knowledge of AWS services (Cloudformation, ECR/ECS, S3, SQS, ElastiCache, DynamoDB, etc.)

  • Experience with relational databases and SQL language.

  • Experience with building docker containers and deployment into Kubernetes.

  • Usage of Git, GitLab and/or Jenkins.

  • Strong testing automation experience.

  • Dev/Ops experience.

Other knowledge, skills, and abilities

  • Excellent problem-solving and organizational skills.

  • Good verbal and written communication skills.

  • Ability to work independently and with a team.

  • Self-starter and ability to work and deliver across an entire system.


  • We love living the #SASlife and believe that happy, healthy people have a passion for life, and bring that energy to work. No matter what your specialty or where you are in the world, your unique contributions will make a difference.

  • Our multi-dimensional culture blends our different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Here, it isn't about fitting into our culture, it's about adding to it - and we can't wait to see what you'll bring.

SAS looks not only for the right skills, but also a fit to our core values. We seek colleagues who will contribute to the unique values that makes SAS such a great place to work. We look for the total candidate: technical skills, values fit, relationship skills, problem solvers, good communicators and, of course, innovators. Candidates must be ready to make an impact.
