Job Description

The AWS Hardware Engineering team is driving rapid innovation in the server and storage infrastructure used by Amazon Web Services. Our designs are fundamentally changing the data center, providing operational and financial benefits that are critical to the success of the AWS business and its millions of customers. Our Software Engineers solve challenging technology problems, and take big bets on new concepts, enabling AWS services to continue to revolutionize the industry.

We are currently looking for an experienced Software Development Engineer to design and build services to monitor and operate next-generation storage infrastructure for AWS world scale compute and storage solutions. The ideal candidate for this role will be an innovative self-starter seasoned in building software services to manage large-scale distributed systems, and analyze and process data and metadata generated from these systems into actionable metrics and trends.

You will collaborate with internal and external development engineers (architecture, hardware, validation, software services). AWS Engineers are shaping the way people use computers and designing the future of cloud computing technology – come help us make history!

What you will do: You will be a member of a team designing and building transformative AWS-specific hardware, firmware and software for non-volatile memory based storage solutions, including NAND-based SSDs. You will build automated monitoring and analysis services using data mining, machine learning, and statistics to process huge amounts of data generated by our storage infrastructure. You will work closely with AWS software engineers to tailor and operate storage solutions for the AWS environment.

Why it matters: Public cloud IT services represent the majority of growth in the overall IT services market and will continue to do so for several years to come. The breathtaking scale of AWS, combined with a deep understanding of how our hardware is used, creates a unique opportunity for component customizations that will directly benefit our customers.

Why you will love it: You will work with engineers across the company to build next-generation cutting edge infrastructure. You will have a direct impact on our bottom line and the ability to deliver features and functionality to our customers. You will be part of a growing, fast paced, and fun team and have ownership for the implementation of your work.
