    Data Scientist – Amazon Web Services – Boston, MA.
    We are looking for a Data Scientist for our Hybrid Storage and Data Transfer services, an area that is seeing accelerated adoption. This portfolio of services includes Storage Gateway, AWS DataSync, and AWS Transfer for SFTP, which simplify integration of on-premises applications and data with cloud services and storage. You will have the opportunity to dive deep into the vast data generated and applying current data analysis methods to produce insights that will improve customer experience, operational effectiveness, and business value. You will get exposed to exciting challenges and opportunities for innovation that arise as we bridge existing enterprise environments with cloud native services. As a member of the hybrid storage team, you’ll work closely with outstanding engineers and product managers to work hard, have fun, and create the future of cloud storage.
    Amazon Web Services (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 Data Scientist on the team you will be curious and dive deep into performance, business, and operational metrics. You’re excited about designing solutions that scale while also engaging individual customers in understanding their applications. You’re able to think about business opportunities, operational issues, and architectural diagrams in the course of a single conversation. You’re looking for a team of bright, capable engineers to work with directly in implementing your vision while also collaborating with other data scientists across AWS.
