Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is looking for experienced engineers to help us build the future of cloud storage. EBS provides high-performance virtualized storage for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and is a key building block for many applications, from databases to distributed file systems and Hadoop clusters. As a member of the EBS team, you will have ownership over the design, implementation, and operation of one of the largest distributed systems in the world. You will work closely with a tight, agile team that ships features continuously, and you will be able to see the impact of your work on real customers!
DE team within EBS is being newly created to improve developer experience through operational excellence, automation and prioritization driven by customer value. We work cross-functionally by building software systems that allow EBS engineers to build, test, qualify and ship products to external EBS customers faster. Our systems let developers spend more time on their core business logic and less time managing the mechanics of shipping code.
This is a hands-on position where you will do everything from designing and building extremely scalable components and cutting-edge features to formulating strategy and direction for EBS development experience. You will also mentor junior engineers and work with the most sophisticated customers in the business to help them get the best results. You need to not only be a top software developer with excellent programming skills, an understanding of network, storage and parallelization. You should also have a stellar record of delivery, excel at leadership, customer obsession and have a real passion for massive-scale computing.
Your responsibilities will include:
* Keeping your finger on the pulse of the constantly evolving and growing Cloud Storage field. * Translation of complex functional and technical requirements into detailed architecture and design. * Delivering systems and features with top-notch quality, on time. * Stay current on technical knowledge to keep pace with rapidly changing technology, and work with the team in bringing new technologies on board.
