Job Description

Are you excited about the incredible opportunity that cloud computing represents? Are you passionate about delivering high quality services and ready to apply your experience at massive scale?
Amazon Web Services' Cloud Storage, AWS S3, is one of the largest distributed storage systems in the world. We host trillions of objects and serve millions of requests per second and we're growing more than 100% year of year. As our customers store more and more data in S3, we want to make it easier for them to manage this data at scale.

The S3 Data Intelligence team provides customers insight into their cloud storage and improves S3’s effectiveness and efficiency through the application of data, science, and engineering. We use data science, machine learning, and business intelligence to transform mass quantities of data from information to knowledge. To do this at S3’s scale we invent new algorithms, operate huge map reduce clusters, and utilize key AWS services for streaming analytics and data warehousing.
In AWS, we’re reinventing technology platforms in the cloud. We need strong engineers that are able to look at problems in new ways, inventing simple solutions to complex problems.

Basic Qualifications

  • 4+ of experience as a software development engineer, preferably in building transformative user experiences
  • 3+ years experience in performance optimization and scaling projects
  • 3+ years experience expertise in leading and delivering customer-oriented design improvements, including closed feedback loops
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, mathematics, a related field or equivalent work experience

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in data mining, streaming analytics, or time series analysis
  • Experience in machine learning, graphical models, structured learning, or sketching
  • Experience in big data processing tools like Hadoop, Spark, and Hive
  • Experience with Agile engineering practices (Scrum, continuous integration and continuous deployment, etc.)
  • Experience rapidly growing teams, driving hiring and training for new employees
  • Experience building high-scale services in fast-paced environments
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience with new product definition and development, including Minimal Viable Product methodology
  • Experience with distributed systems architectures
