Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is storage for the Internet. Through the use of pioneering techniques in distributed computing, developers can durably store their data on AWS's proven computing infrastructure to achieve virtually limitless storage capacity at minimal cost. Amazon S3 provides simple APIs that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. While the emerging area of cloud computing has seen tremendous growth over the past few years, we are still in the early stages of realizing its full potential.

We are looking for a leader of leaders to manage a software area of strategic importance and significant impact. You will manage Managers and Developers in Storage Management, creating data management solutions with workflow pipelines at massive scale. The S3 Lifecycle team makes it easy for customers to take action on billions of objects. Using Lifecycle customers can define rules to automatically manage the Lifecycle of objects, such as transition of less-frequently accessed objects to low-cost storage alternatives and scheduled deletion. We also own Cross-Region Replication (CRR), giving customers full control over the location of their data; so they can choose an appropriate location to copy objects based on local regulatory requirements, a desire to have the data close to principal clients to reduce latency, or for other reasons.

The ideal candidate is excited about the incredible opportunity that cloud computing represents, and is passionate about delivering high quality services in a hyper-growth environment where priorities can shift fast. You excel at leading managers and developers, and have a track record of building strong engineering teams. You have a strategic focus, yet retain hands-on management as you build your team. You set high-level vision and long-term direction. You've had success leading operational services and are ready to apply that experience at even greater scale. You will own the goals and roadmap of your engineering team and will have a major stake in the strategic direction of your software.

    •Strong verbal and written communication skills
    •Strong analytical skills with excellent problem solving abilities
    •Design and develop state-of-the-art approaches to solving complex and ambiguous problems
    •10+ years of software development experience
