Job Description

Have you ever thought about helping U.S. Intelligence Community agencies implement innovative cloud computing solutions and solve technical problems? Are you excited about bringing data science & art together to uncover areas of opportunity that help shape leadership decisions and drive improved performance? We are looking for passionate, insightful, results-oriented business intelligence designers/engineers to join our team. From database modeling, visualization, statistical analysis, predictive analytics, reporting, and requirements gathering, we’ll do it all!

Amazon Web Services is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon.com. We are building some of the largest and most complex distributed systems in the world, and we need world class people to help us implement and operate them.

We provide organizations with building block web services that allow them to innovate faster and operate their software more cost-effectively. These services-in-the-cloud include on-demand compute capacity, storage, content delivery, querying of structured data, message queuing, and more.

The AWS team is building and delivering the next generation of cloud computing that supports public AWS offerings like S3, EC2, and CloudFront. We are innovating new ways of building massively scalable distributed systems.

We have high standards for our computer systems as well as our employees: our systems are highly secure, highly reliable, highly available, and must function at massive scale; our employees are super smart, driven to serve customers, and fun to work with. On a “typical” day, business intelligence engineers might work with business program owners to build data sets and other products that answer their specific business questions, investigate why a metric is trending the wrong way, collaborate with engineers to implement the design of the data architecture, or build predictive models and develop machine learning algorithms. We are looking for a Business Intelligence Engineer to join our energetic, fast-moving and passionate team. This is a tremendous opportunity for BI design & data analysts who want to develop creative, new, and innovative ways of interacting with and interpreting business key performance indicators, and shape the future of cloud computing. You'll be surrounded by people who are wickedly smart, passionate about cloud computing, and believe that world class service is critical to customer success. We're looking for innovators who want to create reliable and scalable solutions to help our leaders create improvement strategies for the platform's insane growth. You will measure your success and it will be visible.
