Amazon Corporate LLC Software Development Engineer - AWS-DynamoDB in Seattle, Washington

Do you want to work on a new service to help redesign the core replication, streaming and storage components of DynamoDB using cutting edge distributed systems, replication and storage technologies? Want to work on a project, which will redefine the DynamoDB core storage components to allow us to scale by orders of magnitude?DynamoDB is an industry leading, fully managed NoSQL serverless database that already supports:* Backing up hundreds of TBs of customer tables in seconds* Replicating tables across continents* Encrypting PBs of data with no performance degradation* Transactional read and write functionality* Fast and predictable performance (millisecond latencies for reads and writes) with seamless scalabilityAmazon DynamoDB is a NoSQL database service that does all this and more. DynamoDB is a key-value and document database that delivers single-digit-millisecond performance at any scale. DynamoDB can store petabytes of customer data and handle peaks of more than 20 million requests per second.As part of this effort you will help build the core components that will allow DynamoDB to keep pushing the boundaries for availability, durability and low latencies as well as laying the foundation for future customer-facing features. As part of this effort you will play a key role in redesigning core pieces of DynamoDB to help build the foundation and set the standard for DynamoDB for years to come.As an engineer on the DynamoDB Data Plane team, you will be responsible for architecting and developing the next generation storage system that can handle 100s of billions of requests a second with industry leading latency, availability and durability characteristics.
