Do you want to shape the future of cloud storage? Are you passionate about building next generation distributed file systems? Do you want to grow and be part of a team that is building a service used by hundreds of thousands of customers every day? If you said yes to any or all of those, come join the Amazon Web Services (AWS) engineering team in our new Boston Seaport location overlooking the Fort Point channel as we revolutionize the world of cloud storage.

Elastic File System (EFS) one of the fastest growing AWS storage service poised for massive scale (hundreds of thousands of customers, millions of file systems, and trillions of files to start!) EFS is a unique file storage service that provides low-latency, shared concurrent file system access to tens of thousands of EC2 instances and on-premises datacenter applications. It is a distributed, highly-available, durable file storage service that is fully elastic. Today, file storage represents the majority of unstructured global data storage and we see EFS as being in a position to serve the vast majority of our customer's file store needs.

Embark on a journey with us to build a distributed file storage service that can scale without limits. We need your passion, innovative ideas, and creativity to help take the service to new heights. This is an opportunity to shape the future of EFS. Our mission is to transform the way the world uses file storage. Listen to how we are enabling our customers to change the world in this customer case study and 2016 AWS re:Invent technical session.

As a member of the EFS team, you will be a significant and autonomous contributor. You're excited about rolling up your sleeves, implementing big ideas, and learning from those around you. You want the opportunity to grow your technical and professional skills while helping EFS and AWS grow. You solve complex problems, applying appropriate technologies and best practices. You are creative, responsible, and curious while working with others to move quickly in turning code into customer solutions. You relish the opportunity to dig into challenging operational issues and to help customers build the next generation of web applications. You're somebody who knows how to be both productive and have fun with others. You are able to mentor team members as well as build relationships with business and technical leadership. You are able to communicate effectively, lead meetings and collaborate in team settings.

Come join one of the fastest growing AWS teams in Boston.
