The AWS Spectre team provides the versioned storage and compute backbones that power the computation of every AWS bill. Are you excited about the idea of building managed services for versioning data at Petabyte-scale that operate at hundreds of thousands of requests per second? Want to help shape the future of federated and versioned compute platforms executing millions of data transforms every hour? Then we need to talk!

Computing AWS bills, at its core, is a challenging distributed systems problem that requires calculations performed over trillions of usage records, millions of accounts, and hundreds of thousands of different rates. Our services provide the foundation for these computations through our innovative versioned data services and federated computation platforms.

As a software development manager, you have the opportunity to help shape the next generation of versioned and time-series data stores and computation services using cutting edge technologies like DynamoDB, S3, Lambda, and more. Additionally, you will build meaningful software that helps AWS to bring our largest customers over to the Cloud. Finally, as an Amazon software development manager, you get to own the full lifecycle of your systems, work on challenging problems at \"Amazon Scale\", and collaborate with high-performing technical teammates - and have fun doing it.

If all of this sounds exciting to you, then please come join us and help shape the future of the Cloud.
