Job Description

Amazon DynamoDB is a key-value and document database that delivers single-digit-millisecond performance at any scale. As a fast-growing service at the core of the AWS Cloud, our business and engineering decisions have widespread impact across AWS, Amazon, and beyond. Many of the world's fastest growing businesses such as Lyft, Airbnb, and Redfin, as well as enterprises such as Samsung, Toyota, and Capital One depend on the scale and performance of DynamoDB to support their workloads. On the DynamoDB team, you will see the impact your work has on the world.

DynamoDB is one of the largest distributed database systems in the world, and we continue to believe it is Day 1 for the DynamoDB business. We are constantly improving and adding new capabilities to DynamoDB, and we are looking for a deeply technical, team-first senior software development engineer to push DynamoDB even further.

DynamoDB engineers say DynamoDB is a technically challenging space that requires unique and innovative solutions. As a senior SDE on the DynamoDB team, you will solve the hardest engineering challenges in distributed systems at a massive scale. The problems you face will exercise your intellectual curiosity to its maximum. You will help lead an amazing team of intelligent individuals to deliver impactful results for customers. And you will interact with other senior SDEs and principal engineers on a daily basis, who will help you take your design and architectural skills to the next level.

Our systems have to be highly available, scalable, and efficient. We can’t get away with two out of three. As a senior engineer, you will design systems to adhere to these tenets and mentor junior engineers to do the same. You will tackle hard distributed-systems problems as well as difficult resource-optimization problems.

You also will lead the delivery of new systems with customer-facing features and new internal functionality. You will play a big role in defining our new offerings in a way that takes advantage of your deep knowledge of industry trends and engineering tradeoffs. You also will be a thoughtful steward of existing systems, appropriately challenging assumptions and rearchitecting systems when necessary to allow us to scale for growth.

This is a hands-on position in which you will be asked to do everything from building rock-solid services to formulating strategy, evangelizing technology, and mentoring other engineers. You need to not only be a top software developer with a track record of delivering on commitments, but also excel at communicating and leading with customers in mind.

If you want to test your limits and tackle technical challenges you won't see anywhere else, join our team!

By joining the DynamoDB team, you'll enjoy a competitive salary, great benefits, a creative and comfortable work environment, and the opportunity to be part of a fast-paced and growing technology company.
