Job Description

Systems Development Engineer II, Amazon RDS Oracle

How's your Linux? I mean, really, how is it? Do you know all of the deep corners of the OS? Do you know where the performance hides? Do you know how to make I/O happen now? Do you know how to make the absolute best use of every byte of RAM, every CPU cycle? Have you had other System Engineers say "I don't believe it" when they saw how well a system you tuned was performing in production? Do you always like to dabble with the latest OS version to keep systems running with the latest and greatest features? Do you like to keep the servers in lock down with the best security and auditing tools to keep intruders away? Do you have an insane obsession of making sure your boxes run with 99.999% uptime?

Seems like we should have a conversation.

At RDS, we manage one of the largest fleets of relational databases on Earth, and are always working to be better at it. We're enhancing our team with deep OS expertise, and you should be on it. Your job will be to work with our Software Engineers, Database Engineers and System Engineers to further develop the Linux platforms that host our databases. You'll be responsible for defining performance and stability parameters for our database engines, OS tweaking that gets us to them, tooling that builds Linux, and tests which certify that the images meet our very high standards.

If this sounds like the right mix of fun, challenge, and wheelhouse to you, drop us a line.
