Job Description

Do you want to help deliver a product that is used by millions of customers every day? Are you passionate about operating highly available and large-scale distributed systems?
If the answer is yes, the Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) team wants to talk with you. ELB is a disruptive new service that offers customers incredibly scalable and robust load balancing technology.

The Elastic Load Balancing group within Amazon Web Services is looking for a Systems Engineer who will help us deliver the next generation of industry leading load balancer service architected for the cloud.

Why should you join the Amazon ELB team?
· We ship software frequently, get fast feedback from real customers around the globe, and see the results of our work come to fruition. The Amazon ELB service is deployed globally to 11 regions today and continues to see excellent growth.
· There are real-world problems to solve that you won’t find ready-made answers for. For example, how do you ensure customers can scale their application quickly to handle traffic spikes and then back down in a matter of minutes? How do you provide a load balancing solution that allows customers to build fault tolerant solutions using Amazon EC2? How do you ensure customers can implement rules for their traffic to be routed to specific applications?
· We are now designing and building the next generation of ELB systems capable of handling terabytes of data per day, and growing from there. This is a unique opportunity to help build large-scale systems from the ground up.
· We are building and operating one of the biggest cloud installation in the world and you could be part of it.

If this sounds great and you are up to the challenge, we’d love to hear from you. Amazon Web Services is changing the world, and this is a great opportunity to be a part of this exciting business.
