Job Description

Are you interested in solving real world customer problems by providing durable storage "in the cloud"? Elastic Block Store (EBS) delivers high performance virtualized storage as part of Amazon Web Services. As a member of the EBS Data Plane you will be a part of the team that owns the core parts of the EBS storage technologies that durably persist all the data written to EBS volumes. We’re looking for engineers to own the performance, availability, scalability, and durability of EBS volumes. This is an opportunity to use advanced thread synchronization and CPU management techniques, work at lower layers of the networking stack, and take advantage of disk drive performance characteristics to engineer services that push the latest generation of hardware to its limits. Additionally, EBS is a large-scale distributed system and so this position has the opportunity to work in two exciting areas of development.

The ideal candidate would possess analytical, design, problem solving skills and experience in building & operating large scale systems. Your responsibilities will include working with other engineers to build high quality large scale systems and working with senior leaders to define your team's roadmap.
