The AWS Relational Database Service (RDS) is one of the fastest-growing AWS businesses, providing super-simple provisioning and management for databases in the cloud. Customers can set up a new database with just a few clicks, and complex administrative tasks like scaling, fail-over, and monitoring are all handled in an automated fashion by our control systems.
RDS provides customers with databases that have multiple-nines of durability and availability. Achieving this level of reliability requires building highly sophisticated control and monitoring systems that automatically detect and handle many types of failures within seconds, and data replication options that accommodate various geographical distribution and disaster recovery objectives. The challenge is further heightened by needing to handle huge numbers of databases, multiple database engines (RDS supports MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server), and a wide variety of customer workloads. To achieve our goals in this area, we have a dedicated team of engineers focused purely on this problem. We are looking for a deeply technical Senior Software Development Manager to run this team and take the RDS high availability solutions to the he next level of reliability, performance, and scale. Candidates need to have a strong sense of ownership, passion to provide great customer experience and excellent troubleshooting skills even when in high-pressure situations. You will also be responsible for managing and growing a strong technical team. Experience with high-availability solutions, especially at massive scale, will be very applicable and helpful.
If you''d like to define the future of high-availability relational database offerings in the cloud, this is the job for you!
