Amazon S3 sets the standard for functionality, cost, and performance for storage in the cloud. With trillions of objects under management, we’re one of the most successful services anywhere.

  • Develop detailed, crisp business requirements and user stories

  • Bring services/features to market, including running Beta programs, collaborating with product marketing, working with industry analysts, etc.
  • Collaborate with and learn from world leaders in cloud computing and storage services
