Amazon is building some of the largest distributed systems in the world, and we need highly energetic and capable engineers to help make these services successful. Amazon's NoSQL services such as DynamoDB and Elasticache are massively scalable databases that are the foundation for many internet scale applications.
AWS is growing extremely fast and we are seeking driven Systems Development Engineers (a.k.a SRE) to help us accelerate it! As an engineer in this position, you’ll be responsible for building automation to manage the fleet. You will also be responsible for developing the next generation software to automate management of the increasingly large, heterogeneous fleet; i.e. automatically updating fleet with latest firmware and OS updates. Your innovation will allow us to manage & operate our monstrous fleet simply, safely and at a scale that few other services will ever experience - a difficult task indeed!
The ideal candidate will be passionate about the large opportunity that DynamoDB presents. They will be passionate about the potential of cloud computing, and about building simple and elegant software solutions and customer-centric products. This person must thrive and succeed in delivering high quality solutions in a hyper-growth environment where priorities can shift fast.
