Amazon is breaking new ground and changing the rules for relational databases. At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we are the public cloud. AWS commands a majority of the world's public cloud traffic, serving customers at ultra large scale, and this volume is growing exponentially every day. At Amazon/AWS, we take databases to their limits. Due to our scale, we see issues that no other RDBMS customers see. We are creatively and disruptively solving some of the most complex database problems related to immense growth, scaling, leveraging the cloud, extremely high performance and high availability requirements.

If you're an engineer who want to be significant part of this core group, come on board!

We have challenging problems to solve in distributed systems, concurrency, high availability, durability, performance, languages, and performance engineering. We intend to be the world's best and most reliable database, built by an excellent team, all while having fun - come join us on the journey!
