Software Development Engineer – DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility)

Vancouver, BC
Full Time
2 days ago
Join us to grow your skills, advance the state-of-the art in database technology, and serve customers all around the world.

Our team develops Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility), a fully-managed cloud database that enables customers to persist JSON documents and retrieve them with a powerful query language. We are developing new query capabilities, pushing the bounds of performance, driving distributed systems innovation in scalability and high availability, and investing in user experience.

As an engineer on the team, you will collaborate with colleagues on research, prototyping, software design, and implementation. Our technical problems span all aspects of database systems - multiversion concurrency control (MVCC), transactions, query optimization, data storage, indexing, parallel computation, wire protocol translation/compilation - as well as distributed systems, telemetry, build and deployment technology, and API and UI design. You will initially focus on one area, with the opportunity to work across areas or rotate over time. You will have the opportunity to interact with customers and to work with product managers to define product improvements. You will be mentored by senior engineers, you will develop your skills, and you will solve hard problems.

If you are excited by the prospect of making it easier for customers to store, query, and analyze data at scale; if you are interested in databases, operating systems, distributed systems, and/or developer tools; and if you are looking to work with teammates to propose ideas, experiment, learn, and build great software - we would love to hear from you.
