We are looking for software engineers that want to write applications and frameworks to gather, import and analyse data from multiple data sources, aggregate data sources, and analyse big data for metrics and reporting.

· Implement designs you've created using Java, Ruby, JRuby, internal Amazon technologies, and AWS technologies.
· Write unit and integration tests to ensure your solutions are complete and accurate.
· Create monitoring and alarming to ensure your solutions behave correctly in production and alarm in a timely manner when issues arise.
· Participate appropriately in estimation and planning, feeding input to program managers.
· Initiate, perform, and respond to code reviews and design reviews.
· Research and learn new technologies to determine which best solves the problem you are working on
