• 195 words

There are some great job openings within Amazon Web Services. I will try to highlight some of those in coming weeks. This week it is an opening for senior leaders with AWS Database Services.

AWS Database Services is responsible for setting the database strategy and delivering distributed structured storage services to our AWS customers. This team is constantly rethinking the assumptions behind how traditional databases were built and constantly working on building the right database architectures suited for the Cloud environment. The database services organization is looking for senior leaders who will be able to hire and lead a large software development team that is responsible for designing and running services that are at the cutting edge of distributed database technology that helps our customers to build scalable database-driven applications in the cloud and have a significant bottom-line impact on our business.

The ideal candidate will be someone who has built and ran large scale distributed systems and/or databases. She (or he) will be able to reason about the standard tradeoffs in building large scale distributed databases and is capable of guiding the team to make these tradeoffs.
