Over the past several years I’ve spent much of my time traveling around the world speaking about distributed systems. From building infinitely scalable data stores, architectures for high performance computing, to the challenges imposed by the CAP theorem, there are wonderful, complex, fascinating problems to be solved in the area of distributed computing. During my travels I’ve met thousands of brilliant engineers who are leveraging the cloud to deliver exciting new products and revolutionize IT as we know it. One thing that’s become obvious to me is that there are innovative, inspiring developers in every corner of the planet from Australia to Iceland and from Israel to Peru.
And that leads me to another distributed problem – finding good engineers to help AWS build the next generation of cloud computing services. We’ve got a big vision and to realize it we need to find qualified engineers to join us on our journey. A quick look at the AWS career web sites reveals that we are hiring hundreds of people around the world.
Distributed problems call for innovative solutions. So next month we will be taking a distributed approach to finding engineers who want to join AWS. On May 17th and 18th we will be traveling to Houston, Minneapolis, and Nashville to interview candidates who want to join the AWS team. If you live in or near one of those cities and are interested in a meeting with us about careers in AWS check out this page. You can also simply email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
