The Amazon S3 Batch Operations team develops software responsible for allowing customers to manage individual objects by applying operations to each object at scale. Developers on the S3 Batch Operations team work on some of the hardest computer science problems. We build distributed systems that handle wildly varying access patterns and unprecedented load by our customers. Managing this growth auto-magically, without the need for customers to provision capacity, is what puts the SIMPLE in S3.
As a Software Development Engineer on this team, you will have the unique opportunity of not just designing, developing and owning entire backend sub-systems with hard distributed system problems but also designing API's that are used by millions of applications around the world and by doing so defining S3 for customers. The work you do here is going to significantly drive growth not just in S3 but the AWS ecosystem.
Creating a reliable, scalable, and flexible web service requires exceptional technical expertise, a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science, and practical experience building large-scale distributed systems. You should be somebody who enjoys working on complex system software, is customer-centric, and feels strongly not only about building good software but about making that software achieve its goals in operational reality. Come join us and help solve a challenging set of problems in a space packed full of opportunities.
