Are you interested in building high scale databases in the cloud? Do you want to revolutionize the way people manage and query huge amounts of data?
In AWS Database Services, our mission is to provide AWS customers with best in class data services in the cloud to store, query and analyze the enormous datasets that their businesses generate. We build distributed storage, index and query systems that are scalable, fault-tolerant, low cost, and easy to manage and use. These are exciting times in our space – we are growing fast, but still at an early stage and working on ambitious new initiatives where an engineer at any level can have significant technical and business impact.
