As a Software Development Engineer on the team you will take ownership over the software design, documentation, development, engineering approach, delivery and support of new big data and machine learning software built natively in AWS. You will build systems for big data ingestion, normalization, validation, storage, MapReduce, analytics, search indices, machine learning pipelines, batch and soft real-time publishing to name a few.

A successful Software Development Engineer will have a broad array of experiences, exceptional design skills, an excellent ability to solve problems, good communication skills and a desire to be a key technical contributor.
