Software Development Engineer
- Seattle, WA
Do you want to work on a service that can do the following?:
• Access petabytes of data in single-digit milliseconds
• Back up hundreds of terabytes of data in seconds
• Encrypt petabytes of data with no performance degradation
Amazon Keyspaces is a NoSQL database service that does all this and more. Amazon Keyspaces is a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandracompatible database service. Amazon Keyspaces is serverless, so customers don't have to provision, patch, or manage servers, and they don't have to install, maintain, or operate software.
Amazon Keyspaces leverages open-source Apache Cassandra software, which is used by enterprises around the world to meet the scale and operational needs of their business. With Amazon Keyspaces, our aim is to make Apache Cassandra highly accessible and easy to use, in order to further drive its adoption across all business tiers.
Amazon Keyspaces engineers are constantly challenged to think of unique and innovative solutions. The quality bar is high. As an engineer here, you will work on the hardest engineering problems in distributed systems at a massive scale and on multiple dimensions. You will exercise your intellectual curiosity, work with motivated teams of sharp individuals, and get insightful guidance from senior and principal engineers.
This is a hands-on position in which you will own everything from end to end: requirements gathering, designs, design reviews, implementations, code reviews, incremental feature launches, operations, mentoring, and the driving of continuous improvement.
