Amazing is Hiring for Relational Database Service (RDS)

AWS Relational Database Service is one of the fastest-growing AWS businesses, providing automated relational database management 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 automatically handled by our control systems. Providing such simplified management for customers comes with the challenge of building sophisticated and reliable control systems. The RDS team addresses these challenges by developing services that reflect the latest advances in high availability, data dissemination and replication, load balancing, autonomous management, and repair.

The systems we build manage huge numbers of databases and vast amounts of storage across multiple regions world-wide, and our service is growing rapidly, requiring constant innovations in our systems in order to handle the next order of magnitude in service scale. We build lots of different kinds of systems, like high-performance OLTP components; partitioned in-memory stores; large-scale, high-throughput workflow services; etc. We work all the way up and down the stack, from kernel-level modules to UX components, using a wide array of technologies, ranging from the various database engines we support (MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle currently) to several AWS services (like EBS and EC2) and many open-source components.

We are looking for developers who thrive in a fast-paced environment, are eager to learn new things, and are excited by the notion of working on large-scale, extremely complicated distributed systems. If this sounds like you, please send your resume to rds-jobs@amazon.com.

LogicMonitor is Hiring a Front End Engineer

Big talk, but we mean it. LogicMonitor is in an interesting phase of a company's life: we have a great product, thousands of users, rapidly growing revenue - but have never had a dedicated front end engineer. We've realized the error of our ways, and are putting design first. Customers like our product now - can you imagine what impact a great front end developer will have? Can you imagine how much fun it will be to have such an impact?

So what are we looking for? Someone to own the code that delivers the design and usability of LogicMonitor's enterprise SaaS application(s), and ensure they are highly functional, performant, and visually compelling. Someone to lead the implementation to change a product that customers like for its functionality into one they delight in using for its design. Could that someone be you.

Please apply online.

New Relic is looking for a Java Scalability Engineer in Portland, OR

Are you ready for the challenges of scaling a web service that's already got more incoming bits/second than Twitter? You're an experienced engineer who knows Java. We're delivering the best application performance management service on the Web. We need your help to solve the scaling problems of a rapidly growing and successful company. At New Relic, you'll be taking on those challenges as part of a smart, fun team in a uniquely supportive work environment. We're looking for a pragmatic engineer who has built systems that scale for growth. You have applied network programming, caching, concurrency, object-oriented design, and databases (relational and otherwise) to real business problems. You are fluent in Java and not afraid of JavaScript. You know how the web works, from HTTP to how cookies actually behave in browsers. Perhaps you read W3C specs for fun.

What tools would you use? We build our data collectors with Java and MySQL, on a fairly typical web stack that handles 50+ billion incoming rows per day. We use Thrift, memcached, git, and Jenkins, with Linux in production and OS X on our desks. Other than that, we expect that you will use the right tool for the job. You'll evaluate technology choices with clear vision. You'll learn every day about what works and what doesn't by monitoring, evaluating, and continuously delivering your work to customers.
