    Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) https://aws.amazon.com/efs/ is built in Boston, MA and launched in 2016. It’s a fully managed service that makes it easy to set up and scale shared file storage in the AWS Cloud. Amazon EFS is designed for a wide variety of use cases: data analytics, video rendering, genomics analysis, web serving, content management, and home directories, to name a few.

    Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon, with over a million active customers in 190 countries around the world. In 2017, AWS launched more than 1000 new services and innovative features! We maintain this rapid pace of innovation by treating each team like its own startup inside AWS, directly accountable for their customers’ satisfaction, service innovations, ambitious growth, and meeting revenue goals.

    As a Software Development Manager in this office, you will lead a team designing and building services and features that allow customers to create cloud storage solutions that are secure, reliable, completely elastic, and can grow to petabyte-scale. Delivering reliable and high-performance services and features at AWS scale requires technical leaders with extraordinary expertise and boundless creativity. At Amazon, managers will interact with customers, understand our business goals, and innovate rapidly, delivering high-quality and ground-breaking functionality.

    What does it take to thrive as a Software Development Manager on EFS?
