DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Do you want to revolutionize the way builders access their data in relational databases? Then read on.

AWS Relational Database Service’s Data API enables you to focus on building your applications without worrying about managing database connections or connection pools. This is a great fit for the new serverless world where scaled-out server-less functions run for few milliseconds to minutes. You will be solving interesting distributed systems challenges on the data plane path at AWS’ scale.

We are looking for a motivated engineer to help reinvent the customer experience with databases. You will work on a team that architects, designs, and delivers web service APIs around ‘intelligent’ distributed database systems with availability, reliability and performance guarantees to AWS customers. You will participate in product direction and road-map planning, project execution scheduling, and hiring engineers to develop cutting-edge database services. This is a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor within a fast-growing service and help shape the technology, and the product. A successful candidate will bring deep technical and leadership expertise, and ability to work within a fast-paced startup culture in a large company to deliver solid code that has a broad business impact.
