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 Software Engineer to join our rapidly growing team.
As an engineer on our team, you'll have the opportunity to lead the design and implementation of a distributed storage service that operates at cloud scale. Your design and development work would range from distributed system service development in Java, to low level systems coding that interfaces directly with hardware. You'll be working to bring brand new systems to production use, and to do so you'll need to solve challenging computer science problems.
We are looking for a senior engineer who is keen to lead, invent in this space, and build what could become the largest data storage service on the planet.
