Job summary

Developers all over the world rely on AWS purpose-built database, analytics, and ML services that enable them to build data driven applications that serve virtually any use case, from processing millions of transactions per second to querying or training models on petabytes of data for analytics, business intelligence, and machine learning.

Our success depends on our world-class technology, and we’re handling massive scale and rapid integration of emerging technologies.

We are looking for Software Development Engineers to join and drive our development teams building Amazon’s next generation of services.

As a Software Development Engineer, you’ll have a unique opportunity to shape the development of future AWS database and analytics services.

In this role you will be part of a team innovating and solving problems of high ambiguity and high impact. You will drive design choices, trade-offs, priorities and timelines.

You will demonstrate exceptional management skills and technical expertise, and have practical experience building large-scale distributed systems.

You are data and metric driven, and obsessively concerned about performance under resource constrained environments. You will guide and inspire other engineers, participate in defining our engineering culture, and help to build a fast-growing and highly self-motivated team.

You will draw from your deep and broad technical and management expertise to mentor other engineers, complete hands-on technical work and provide thought leadership and delivery of complex technical issues, design tradeoffs, and feature and schedule prioritization.

Joining the AWS Analytics team gives you the opportunity to :

  • Work on a disruptive product that’s still in its early stages
  • Solve challenging problems that will revolutionize database computing in the cloud
  • Build a product that will leverage the scale of resources available in the cloud
  • Help enable the digital transformation of our 1,000’s of customer’s businesses, which is at the forefront of leading CEO’s minds.
  • The ideal candidate will be a visionary builder and operator. You’ll have experience leading or contributing to multiple simultaneous product development efforts.

    You’ll be able to balance technical leadership and savvy with strong business judgment to make the right decisions about technology choices.

    You’ll strive for simplicity, and demonstrate significant creativity and high judgment.

    As a Software Development Engineer at Amazon you’ll be expected to :

  • Demonstrate your overall technical competencies and your analytical and problem solving skills
  • Work directly with senior and principal engineers to define the architectural roadmap of new and dependent services
  • Oversee the design process, implementation schedule, and delivery to customers in a fast-paced environment
  • Work closely with senior leadership to develop the long-term business strategy and feature roadmap
  • Bring a deep understanding of software development methodologies to the team
  • Demonstrate your ability to manage a service with high availability, and continue to learn and develop the skills needed to lead a service team with the high operational excellence bar expected by AWS
  • Contribute to Amazon's intellectual property through patents and / or external publications
  • This is a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor with a new AWS service, and work in an exciting startup environment.

    Come, join us in reinventing analytics systems in the cloud!
