Your software must be unobtrusive, efficient, and scalable. You will utilize one of the worlds most dependable, easy-to-use and most performant BigData platforms to innovate and develop your hardware immune system.

Our systems run 24/7, in the harshest environments, and serve more than a million customers each day who demand performance, even when the toughest compute workloads are considered. The health of our infrastructure is our top priority. We’re looking for technology leaders that can help us build these systems, solve really tough operational problems and suggest new, innovative, ways to keep AWS hardware in tip-top shape.

You will work with software and hardware teams across the company to build world-class software. You will be a part of a growing, fast paced team that is making history.
