Job Description

Amazon Web Services is looking for experienced engineering leaders to help us define and build the future of computing. The AWS Elastic Block Store (EBS) service delivers high performance virtualized storage "in the cloud" for EC2. Durable storage is a key building block for any application and as a member of the EBS team you'll work alongside other outstanding engineers to develop and operate one of the largest storage services in the world.
As a member of the EBS team, you will have strong ownership over the design, implementation, and operation of a massive scale distributed system. You'll work closely with a tight, agile team that ships and you will be able to see the impact your work has on real customers. You'll also have the opportunity to work across a range of technologies, from Java-based distributed systems using sql and nosql datastores, low level high performance storage systems in C/C++, to massive real time data analytics.
We are looking for an innovative engineering manager to own, build, and grow the core storage systems that make up EBS. You will be responsible for growing and leading the team that will design, develop, test, and operate key, scaleable systems. As a member of the EBS leadership team you will help set and meet aggressive goals and by working with customers and other leaders throughout AWS you will help shape our long term technical and business strategy.
The ideal candidate will be excited about the incredible opportunity cloud computing represents and will be passionate about building great teams that deliver high quality software. You will enjoy working in a fast paced environment that requires strong technical and business judgment and great communication skills.
