Are you excited about the incredible opportunity that cloud computing represents? Are you passionate about delivering high quality services and ready to apply your experience at massive scale? Amazon Web Services' Cloud Storage, AWS S3, is one of the largest distributed storage systems in the world. We host trillions of objects and serve millions of requests per second and we're growing more than 100% year over year.
S3 Lifecycle Transitions is an integral part of S3 Storage Management landscape which helps customers to make decisions on placement, movement and restores of objects across all S3 supported storage classes. Going into 2019, our team objective is to continue demonstrating operational excellence, keep our services secure, optimize our services with goal to lower infrastructure cost, bring agility by automating region builds and to add new features to make S3 more usable to our customers.
The S3 Lifecycle Transitions team develops software responsible for lifecycle transition workflows and unification of S3 Glacier storage class. Developers on the S3 Transitions team work on some of the hardest computer science problems. We build systems that can handle wildly varying access patterns and unprecedented load by our customers. Managing this growth auto-magically, without the need for customers to provision capacity, is what puts the SIMPLE in S3.
As a Software Development Engineer on this team, you will have the unique opportunity of not just designing, developing and owning entire backend sub-systems with hard distributed system problems but also designing API's that are used by millions of applications around the world and by doing so defining S3 for customers. The work you do here is going to significantly drive growth not just in S3 but the AWS ecosystem.
Creating a reliable, scalable, and flexible web service requires exceptional technical expertise, a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science, and practical experience building large-scale distributed systems. You should be somebody who enjoys working on complex system software, is customer-centric, and feels strongly not only about building good software but about making that software achieve its goals in operational reality. Come join us and help solve a challenging set of problems in a space packed full of opportunities.
