Job Description

Want to work on a product that can:

Deliver single-digit millisecond performance at any scale.

Backup hundreds of TBs of customer tables in seconds

Replicate tables across continents

Encrypt PBs of data with no performance degradation

DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL serverless database that does all this and more!

DynamoDB provides fast and predictable performance 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 want to be part of 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.

As a senior 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 (serverless, IOT, Adtech).

We need developers who can handle hard distributed systems problems as well as hard resource optimization problems.

Our solutions have to be super solid, scalable, efficient, and extremely fault tolerant. As a senior engineer you will be designing systems to adhere to these tenets, and mentor more junior engineers. We are also rapidly adding features, both customer facing and internal. You'll be involved in both. This is a hands-on position where you will be asked to do everything from building rock-solid components to formulate strategy and evangelize technology, mentor other engineers and provide 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.

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.
