Software Development Engineer AWS-Relational Database Service At Amazon.com

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia

Job Description

Job Description

The AWS Relational Database Service is one of the fastest-growing AWS businesses, providing automated relational database management in the cloud. Customers can set up a new database with just a few clicks, and complex administrative tasks like scaling, fail-over, and monitoring are all automatically handled by our control systems. Providing such simplified management for customers comes with the challenge of building sophisticated and reliable control systems. The RDS team addresses these challenges by developing services that reflect the latest advances in high availability, data dissemination and replication, load balancing, autonomous management, and repair.

The systems we build manage huge numbers of databases and vast amounts of storage across multiple regions world-wide, and our service is growing rapidly, requiring constant innovations in our systems in order to handle the next order of magnitude in service scale. We build lots of different kinds of systems, like high-performance OLTP components; partitioned in-memory stores; large-scale, high-throughput workflow services; etc. We work all the way up and down the stack, from kernel-level modules to UX components, using a wide array of technologies, ranging from the various database engines we support to several AWS services (like EBS and EC2) and many open-source components.

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer who will work with the team that designs and builds our next generation software test framework that will allow RDS and AWS as a whole to deliver highly scalable and distributed systems and delight our customers. You will work with engineers in RDS and in other AWS teams and translate the requirements to technical deliverables and deliver solutions.

The successful applicant must possess excellent software development skills, working knowledge of relational databases, ability to learn new skills and concepts rapidly, and is able to work independently and is self-motivated. Candidates need to have a strong sense of ownership, passion to provide great customer experience and excellent troubleshooting skills even when in high-pressure situations.
