Job Description

Job Description

Want to revolutionize distributed storage? Over the past 20 years people have discovered that networked clusters of inexpensive computers can create systems more powerful than monolithic mainframes. This process also allows engineers to build a machine to solve small problems and add capacity continuously as the problems scale up, or split one large machine into multiple smaller ones temporarily. On Amazon’s Elastic Block Store (EBS) team, we’re bringing that same revolution from computing to storage. And we’re also providing it in the cloud, via a pay-as-you-go web service. EBS delivers high-performing virtualized storage “in the cloud” for EC2, and is a key building block for many applications, from databases to distributed file systems to Hadoop clusters. Delivering a reliable, scalable, and high-performance service requires engineers with exceptional technical expertise and creativity. In addition, at Amazon, along with superlative technical strength, we expect our engineers to interact with customers, to understand our business goals, and to innovate rapidly, delivering high-quality and ground-breaking functionality. The ideal candidate for our team will be passionate about the large opportunity that Amazon EBS and EC2 present and about “Cloud Computing” in general. He or she will have strong design and implementation experience, in-depth knowledge of distributed systems architectures.

Basic Qualifications

Bachelors Degree in Computer Science or related field, or 4+ years relevant work experience Experience in C/C++ programming

Preferred Qualifications

Experience with multithreaded concurrent processing Experience with Linux/Windows kernel modules and file systems, storage hardware or virtualization technologies and preferred. Experience operating enterprise-scale distributed systems Background with scalable storage solutions Demonstrated ability to achieve stretch goals in a highly innovative and fast paced environment. Experience leading and/or mentoring other engineers. Excellent communication skills and the ability to work well in a team. Graduate degree (MS/PhD) a plus. *LI-RR3 ** For more information on Amazon Web Services, please visit http://aws.amazon.com **

About Amazon.com

Company Description

Amazon, a Fortune 500 company based in Seattle, Washington, is the global leader in e-commerce. Since Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1995, we have significantly expanded our product offerings, international sites, and worldwide network of fulfillment and customer service centers. Today, Amazon offers everything from books and electronics to tennis rackets and diamond jewelry. We operate sites in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, Italy, and China (Joyo.com) and maintain dozens of fulfillment centers around the world which encompass more than 26 million square feet.

 

Company History

Our founder Jeff Bezos established Amazon in his home garage in 1994. In less than a decade, he realized his vision of creating a destination where people can find anything they might want to buy online. Today, Amazon is a Fortune 500 company with seven global websites that offer customers an expanding selection of tens of millions of products across categories ranging from books and music to apparel and home electronics. When Bezos said that “we are a company of builders,” he really meant it. And it’s just as evident today.
 

Working Here

At Amazon, every employee is focused on the customer. It’s a challenging place where business and technology professionals work together to develop innovative solutions to challenging business objectives. Like you, we have an unwavering dedication to productivity, and every employee is challenged to "think like an owner." Find out where you fit in.
 

Benefits

There are many things to consider when deciding on your next employer. At Amazon we offer employees the chance to work with great people, on exciting projects, with a ton of opportunity for growth.

But we also recognize that Amazonians have a life outside of work and need a break every once in a while. That's why we provide a full range of benefits for you and your eligible family members. While the benefits may vary slightly from location to location, these are the basics for full-time, U.S. employees:
  • Health Care
  • Time Off
  • Savings Plans
  • Employee Stock
  • Relocation Assistance
