Amazon Web Services is looking for experienced engineers to help us define and build the future of cloud storage. We are working on an exciting service in the storage and backup domain, to complement and enhance existing AWS offerings such as EBS (https://aws.amazon.com/ebs), S3 and Glacier (https://aws.amazon.com/backup-recovery). The team provides virtualized hardware-accelerated instance storage solution. Our solution is used as the direct instance storage for I3, I3EN, F1, M5D, R5D, C5D, M5AD, Z1D, G4D, P3D instance types offered by EC2.
As a member of this team, you will work alongside truly innovative engineers and leaders who obsess about performance, availability, scalability and durability of customer data. You will be developing features that solve customers' real world problems. You will be solving technical problems at a large scale, using SOA, distributed systems, and storage technologies. As a member of this service team, you will have strong ownership over the design, implementation and operation of a massive scale distributed storage system. You will have the opportunity to work closely with an agile team that ships often, and see the impact your code has on a wide range of customers from startups to enterprise companies.
The ideal candidate would possess strong analytical, design, problem solving skills and experience in building & operating high performance systems at scale. You should have experience working with other senior engineers, mentoring junior engineers, and working with senior leaders to define your team's roadmap. Experience in the storage industry is helpful but not required.
