Amazon Aurora is the leading cloud native relational database and the fastest growing service in AWS history. It offers enterprise grade performance with open source spirit and technologies under the hood.

With growing feature set and complexity of the engine we need to maintain a high bar of the automation around infrastructure which supports it.

Being a cloud native service implies a lot of challenges associated - we need to be able to do zero downtime patching, live migrations, non-

disruptive engine upgrades, be able to roll out multiple components independently and continuously. Every second there's something in motion and something happening in the Aurora ecosystem.

Infrastructure which makes it all possible is inherently complex, bullet proof and reliable.

We are looking for passionate engineers who loves automating the things, building distributed systems to support continuous deployments, version and release management, who hates manual and mundane tasks and shares the SRE and DevOps culture.

You will be working on deployment systems which work with well defined Software Release APIs of our services, collaborate with engine teams to implement APIs for feature discovery, design features like release rolbback and cross-engine migrations.

We welcome innovation and would be happy to hear your ideas on implementing containers, virtualization, design new APIs and ideas on how to do Blue / Green deployments for databases
