Job Description

Want to build insights to help DynamoDB reach Exabyte scale? Come and work with us.

DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL serverless database that provides fast and predictable performance (millisecond latencies for reads and writes) with seamless scalability. DynamoDB receives tens of millions of read and write requests per second to databases that are hundreds of TBs in size.

We are already one of the biggest distributed database systems in the world. That being said, we believe it is still Day 1 for DynamoDB and our aspirations are to grow this product by 10x in the next 2 years. We are looking for deeply technical, team first mentality individuals who are willing to commit themselves to this aspiration.

Engineers say DynamoDB is a technically challenging space that requires unique and innovative solutions. In DynamoDB, you will get to solve the hardest engineering challenges in distributed systems at massive scale. As a developer in the DynamoDB team, you will get to exercise your intellectual curiosity to its max, work with an amazing team of super sharp individuals who will help you grow your skills and career, and hone your design and architectural skills by getting to work with Principal Engineers and Senior Engineers on a daily basis.

This will be a hands-on position where you will do everything from designing, implementing rock solid components, launching a new service iteratively, mentoring other engineers as well as evangelizing the work done by your team.

As an engineer on the Insights team, you will be responsible for building new high demand customer facing features for DynamoDB to help customers manage their tables efficiently by getting insights about their access patterns. This requires processing hundreds of millions of log data every hour and managing an internet-scale time-series database to power DynamoDB's 10X growth in the next 2 year

As an engineer you will play a big role in defining our new offerings in a way that takes advantage of your deep knowledge of industry trends and engineering tradeoffs (Big data,serverless, IOT, Adtech). We need developers who can handle hard distributed systems problems as well as hard resource optimization problems. As a tier zero Amazon service that will be growing at a very high rate our solutions have to be super solid, scalable, efficient, and extremely fault tolerant. As an engineer you will be designing systems to adhere to these tenets, and mentor junior engineers. This is a hands-on position where you will do everything from building rock-solid components to formulating strategy and evangelizing technology, mentoring other engineers and providing training and support for our supported technologies. You need to not only be a top software developer with a good track record of delivering, but also excel in communication, leadership and customer focus. If you want to test your limits and tackle technical challenges you won't see anywhere else then come join our group.

Your responsibilities will include:

* Translation of complex functional and technical requirements into detailed architecture and design

. Run multi-engineer cross-team projects. You will need to demonstrate and mentor others on project management, and prioritization.

* Be very hands-on; work with others on the engineering team to manage the day-to-day development activities, participate in designs, design review, code review, and implementation.
* Delivery quality features on-time and on-budget and execution against project plans and delivery commitments.
* Perform data analysis to identify opportunities to optimize our fleet.
* Work with data scientists to understand the data they need, and build services to act on the insight from the data scientist.
* Maintain current technical knowledge to support rapidly changing technology, always on a look out for new technologies and work with management and the development team in bringing in new technologies.

Candidate must be able to work with a minimum of technical supervision and supplemental engineering support, while responding efficiently to multiple program priorities. Work with engineering teams to design and optimize a wide variety of development projects using a variety of development tools and practices. In addition, the role involves developing shared components and tools, analyzing the latest technologies and development trends, establishing and implementing standard practices.

In joining our team, you'll enjoy a competitive salary, great benefits, a creative and comfortable work environment, and the exciting opportunity to be part of a fast-paced and growing technology company.
