Job Description

Do you enjoy working on large-scale distributed systems and the latest Big Data technologies? Would you like to join the team that builds one of the largest Big Data analytics platforms at Amazon? We are looking for passionate engineers to help us design and build the next generation of our data analytics platform to serve the needs of the largest block storage service in the world - AWS Elastic Block Store (EBS). If this sounds interesting, we'd love to hear from you!

EBS provides high-performance virtualized storage for Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud. As a member of the Data Analytics team within EBS, you'll be working closely with other engineers and data scientists on interesting problems involving Big Data, machine learning, anomaly detection, data mining, statistical analysis, and forecasting on massive structured and unstructured data sets. We own data ingestion, analytics, and reporting on both operational and business data, and provide actionable insights to EBS and the EC2 storage business. The data and infrastructure we provide inform feature design, operational improvements, and the overall strategy of the business. By enabling data-driven decisions, we play a critical role in launching new products for EBS, analyzing EBS volume performance, detecting anomalies, root-causing and mitigating operational events, and much more. Our platform combines open source Big Data technologies as well as AWS services to process billions of data points per minute in near-real time, requiring over 1PB of storage per day! We are pushing the scalability limits of existing technologies and this presents unique challenges and opportunities to innovate at the cutting edge of Big Data. In this role, you will be responsible for the design, development, testing and operations of key scalable systems. You'll be working closely with a tight, agile team that ships features continuously, and you'll be able to see the impact of your work on real customers!

The ideal candidate will share our excitement about the incredible opportunity cloud computing and Big Data analytics represent, and will be passionate about delivering high quality services. You will have good knowledge of distributed systems with design and implementation experience, as well as the ability to lead and mentor other engineers. Experience with databases, data warehousing, business intelligence, and machine learning are particularly valued, as is experience delivering large-scale online services. You will be customer centric and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment that requires excellent technical and communication skills.
