Have you ever wondered how Amazon scale their technologies to meet their explosive business growth? Join Sable AWS team to be part of the development of a large scale data migration and integration initiative to support Amazon's business growth.

Sable AWS team is looking for a passionate, results-oriented, innovative software development engineer to work on large-scale data integration and migration platform at Amazon.
