Amazon Web Services is seeking an outstanding Software Development Engineer to join the AWS Data Tools team.
Join a rapidly growing team of software engineers that are building best-in-class tools and large-scale distributed systems to enable big data processing in the cloud. You will wield Java, Ruby, web services, and OOD to develop massively scalable, robust software which thrives in the onslaught of traffic from massive cloud computing services like S3, EC2, CloudFront, VPC, and others. The ideal candidate will have a passion for big data, strong experience in distributed systems and web services design, as well as an ability to work on highly available production systems.
Our team tackles some of the hardest scalability, performance, and distributed computing challenges in the world. We process billions of line items via map reduce (EMR), and manage artifacts through the latest in database technologies (DynamoDB and Redshift). We process big data and are building our next generation data portal for customers to ingest, explore, and manage their data and query workloads. Because we sit at the nexus of all AWS services and interact directly with end-customers, we also work closely across all AWS teams to ensure that we offer a great customer experience.
If you are a strong developer with experience and interest in high-volume websites, distributed systems and databases, performance and scalability, we'd like to talk to you.
You should have deep expertise in the design, creation, management, and business use of large datasets, across a variety of data platforms. You should have excellent business and communication skills to be able to work with business owners to understand data requirements. You should be an expert at designing, implementing, and operating stable, scalable, low cost solutions to flow massive amounts of data from production systems into the data lake. Above all you should be passionate about working with huge data sets and someone who loves to bring datasets together to answer business questions and drive growth.
