Job Description

The vast majority of data in the world is cold -- durably and securely retained for long periods of time, but rarely ever accessed. Conventional storage systems are a poor fit for this domain as they are typically optimized for speed rather than space and cost. Amazon Glacier has been designed from the very start to provide secure, durable and scalable data storage at a very low cost. This unusual set of constraints leads us to fascinating scaling and algorithmic problems that have never been tackled at our scale.

As a member of the Glacier team, you will discover innovative ways to combine data and hardware to reduce the cost of a byte. You will craft new services and features to support a major shift in our software architecture. You care about the details - your attention to detail will streamline operations, and aid us in hiring more great engineers to join our growing team and our rapidly growing service.
