    We are looking for a Performance Engineer to join the Amazon FSx for Lustre team. Launched in a Re:Invent keynote in November 2018, Amazon FSx for Lustre is a brand new AWS service that makes it easy for customers to launch and run high-performance file systems in the cloud. With Amazon FSx, in just minutes you can provision a Lustre parallel file system that can process massive data sets at up to hundreds of gigabytes per second of throughput, millions of IOPS, and sub-millisecond latencies. Customers already love the service, but we're just getting started. Come join the Amazon Web Services engineering team in our Boston Seaport location overlooking the Fort Point channel as we revolutionize the world of high performance computing (HPC) and cloud storage!

    AWS is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon, with over a million active customers in 190 countries around the world. AWS has been continually expanding its services to support virtually any cloud workload, and it now has more than 90 services that range from compute, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, developer, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), security, hybrid and enterprise applications. We maintain this rapid pace of innovation by treating each team like its own independent business inside AWS, directly accountable for their customers’ satisfaction, service innovations, growth, and meeting revenue goals.

    As a Performance Engineer, you will use a range of data science methodologies to conduct benchmarking and performance analysis of Amazon FSx for Lustre. You will design and implement scalable and reliable approaches to extract the best information possible from the data. You will develop metrics to quantify performance and audit existing metrics to measure progress and success. You will prepare dashboards and reports including substantial data and analytical components that we can use to understand and improve the performance of Amazon FSx for Lustre.

    Delivering a reliable and high-performance service at AWS scale requires engineers with deep technical expertise and lots of creativity. At Amazon, we expect engineers like you to interact with customers, to understand our business goals, to innovate rapidly, and to deliver high-quality and ground-breaking functionality.

    Embark on a journey with us to build a new service for AWS. We need your passion, innovative ideas, and creativity to shape the future of a nascent service at Amazon scale with a team that is super smart, driven to serve customers, and fun to work with!
