About Us WeA?re a new team within the Relational Database Service, one of the fastest growing businesses within Amazon Web Services, and weA?re looking for seasoned, talented software engineers in Seattle, the Bay Area, and Boston. Our service provides managed, reliable, scalable and highly available relational databases, on demand.

We have the need for low:level systems C programmers, mid:tier high performance C++ developers, and distributed systems Java wizards. About You YouA?ve built a lot of software : shipped products, created platforms, tools and modules, perhaps worked with every framework under the sun, perhaps made everything you have touched fast as lightning. You may have built big, distributed, API:driven systems with thousands of users, or systems for billions of transactions. YouA?re as excited as we are about learning every day, and solving really hard engineering problems that no one else is. Passionate about software quality, repeatability, testability and maintainability, you are known to your co:workers as the go:to person for answers to questions that begin with the phrase A?whatA?s the best way toA?A? : even though your answers tend to start with A?help me understand what youA?re trying to accomplish byA?A? . When you need clarity, you go to the product owner : or even a user : and talk to them until you get it. With stakeholders and other team members you are diplomatic, persuasive, and usually right. You understand the challenges associated with operating a large:scale system in production, and your designs and implementations reflect that understanding. When youA?re wrong, youA?re happy to learn something. You build software quickly, but properly (so that you donA?t have to go back to it later). You know what A?unit testsA? are and donA?t implement software without them. Shipping on time with high quality makes your heart feel warm. Who are you?
