Job Description

Are you interested in building high scale databases in the cloud? Do you want to revolutionize the way people manage and query huge amounts of data?

Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. It enables customers to dramatically increase their query performance when analyzing virtually any size data set using the same SQL-based business intelligence tools they use today. They can launch a fully operational service with a few clicks for as low as under $1000 per terabyte per year. Amazon Redshift manages all the work needed to set up, operate, and scale a data warehouse, from provisioning capacity and installing software to monitoring and backing up the cluster, to applying patches and upgrades. By automating these labor-intensive tasks, Amazon Redshift enables customers to spend their time focusing on their data and business insights, rather than on procuring and managing infrastructure.

Joining the Amazon Redshift team gives you the opportunity to:
  • Work on a disruptive product that’s still in its early stages
  • Solve challenging problems that will revolutionize database computing in the cloud
  • Build a product that will leverage the scale of resources available in the cloud
  • Work for a company that’s a recognized leader in the cloud computing space
  • Be involved in the fast growing, big data space

  • Translating functional and technical requirements into detailed architecture and design
  • Coding and testing complex system components
  • Participating in code and design reviews to maintain our high development standards
  • Working with other teams to deliver and operate large scale, distributed services in the cloud
  • Overall system architecture, scalability, reliability, and performance
  • Mentoring other engineers, defining our challenging technical culture, and helping to build a fast-growing team

Basic Qualifications

  • 6+ years experience writing large scale systems in C/C++ or Java
  • Bachelors in Computer Science or Engineering, or equivalent experience

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong knowledge of data structures and algorithms
  • Experienced writing multi-threaded programs requiring concurrency and synchronization primitives
  • Write very high quality code that is robust and easy to maintain
  • Experienced debugging, diagnosing, and trouble-shooting complex, production software
  • Strong understanding of system performance and scaling
  • Ability to drive tasks to completion and take ownership of projects
  • Ability to work in a fast paced and agile development environment
  • Possess excellent communication, sharp analytical abilities, and proven design skills
  • Experience delivering and operating large scale, highly available distributed systems is a plus
  • Experience with large-scale data analytics and data warehousing is a plus
  • Masters or PhD in Computer Science a plus
