3+ months agoPalo Alto, CA


Enable businesses to focus on building the next generation of data-reactive solutions using Apache Kafka without having to worry about undifferentiated operational overhead.

AWS customers use Apache Kafka to rapidly innovate on real-time data to advance solutions and build new lines of business. The types of real-time solutions customers are building are vast but include machine learning for autonomous applications, autonomous detection of security anomalies within a network, transforming and loading data into data lakes in near real-time, and processing real-time data to optimize and feed ad exchanges. AWS customers are just scratching the surface of the real-time data streaming space, and we are looking for a Principal Product Manager to drive the vision of Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK) and build the features and services users want.
