Do you like building a service from the ground up? Are you passionate about large-scale distributed systems? Do you want to want to work closely with customers to revolutionize the way they analyze their data?
We are building a new query service, code named SPICE. It is a new database service that specializes in analytical queries. SPICE is currently powering Amazon QuickSight, an AWS business analytics service. As a multi-tenant serverless analytics backend, SPICE enables organizations to scale to hundreds of thousands of users without the need to manage infrastructure or provision capacity.
There are tremendous challenges in building a new service from scratch, and we are excited about it. We are building innovative technologies to solve hard problems in distributed systems, such as request routing and throttling, replication, heat management, auto recovery, and auto scaling. We are looking for passionate engineers to join us in this journey.
You will work on both the architecture and deep algorithmic problems. You will build new components and write a lot of code. You will influence our technical direction and help prioritize our product roadmap by working closely with customers. You will partner with talented people and have plenty of opportunities to learn and lead.
In Amazon Web Services (AWS), our mission is to provide customers with best in class data services in the cloud to store, query and analyze the enormous data sets that their businesses generate. We build distributed storage, index and query systems that are scalable, fault-tolerant, low cost, and easy to manage and use. These are exciting times in our space - we are growing fast, but still at an early stage and working on ambitious new initiatives where an engineer at any level can have significant technical and business impact. Our team pioneered Amazon RDS, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Redshift. Each service changed the course of database history by bringing new and innovative features to our customers. You can read about how DynamoDB is the fastest growing service in AWS history at http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2012/06/amazon-dynamodb-growth.html.
