Amazon Elastic Block
The Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) service delivers high performance virtualized storage "in the cloud" for EC2. Cloud computing represents a fundamental shift in how businesses use and manage their information needs. While this emerging area of computing has seen tremendous growth over the past five years, we are still in the early stages of realizing its full potential. Be a part of the team that owns the core parts of the EBS storage technologies that durably persist all the data written to EBS volumes. We’re looking for innovative engineers to own the performance, availability, scalability, and durability of EBS volumes. This is an opportunity to use advanced thread synchronization and CPU management techniques, work at lower layers of the networking stack, and take advantage of disk drive performance characteristics to engineer services that push the latest generation of hardware to its limits. Our team is clearly passionate about the incredible opportunity that Amazon EBS presents
