Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is one of the fastest growing AWS businesses, providing managed databases as a service.

· Make the business decisions that grow adoption and usage of RDS. Set prices, target the right customers, and focus our investments in the right areas.
· Work closely with all RDS engineering teams to design, schedule and deliver in an agile environment.
· Launch new features and make sure our sales, marketing, and PR teams are telling the most compelling RDS story
· Dive deep into database technology to chart the vision for the next big things from Amazon and RDS Postgres.
