Amazon S3 Glacier is a secure, durable, and extremely low-cost cloud storage service for data archiving and long-term backup. It is designed to deliver 99.999999999% durability, and provides comprehensive security capabilities. Customers use Glacier to store data long term, while having the flexibility of retrieving their data within a few minutes (using expedited retrieval speed) or few hours (using standard or bulk retrieval speeds.) Conventional storage systems are a poor fit for this domain as they are typically optimized for speed rather than space and cost. Glacier's unique constraints lead to fascinating scaling and algorithmic problems that have never been tacked at our scale. To meet our cost goals, we have a constant need to drive fundamentally new storage technologies in the industry and come up with innovative ways to further optimize costs. We are now working on the next set of major hardware and software enhancements to the service and are seeking a Senior Technical Program Manager to join our rapidly growing team.
You will lead strategic projects, starting with ambiguous goals, defining tenets and success measures, building plans, and driving execution through to completion. One such project would be the recently pre-announced Glacier Deep Archive. To execute on this we'll need a combination of software, hardware, and people, but most importantly, we'll need your leadership.
We're also growing incredibly fast and with that growth come challenges of scale. Petabyte is a small unit for us. It will be a core part of your job to quickly invent and adopt processes and automation to achieve that scale. You will focus on infrastructure, capacity planning, and forecasting, and work across teams in AWS to build an easily repeatable execution path. You will lead new initiatives from conception to completion, with regular review by directors and VPs.
