AWS Metering and Bill Generation combines some of the most interesting computer science problems around idempotency, hot-partition management, and once-and-only-once processing, applied at massive scale (100+ trillion records per month at 1 Petabyte of data per day). Furthermore, mission-critical requirements demand that we build systems which guarantees accuracy and can quickly adapt to the fluid roadmap of the AWS business (50+ services and growing).

Computing AWS bills requires calculations performed over trillions of usage records, millions of accounts, and hundreds of thousands of different rates. Equally important, the information that we control enables detailed reports that give customers insight into how they run their business, empowers rich dashboards that highlight historical trends, and provides data that allows customers to continuously monitor and control their budget.

As a software developer, you have the opportunity to lead the paradigm shift in streaming Big Data by building applications on top of cutting-edge AWS technologies such as Kinesis, EMR, DynamoDB, Redshift, Aurora, and many more. Additionally, you can build meaningful software that can radically change how AWS wins our largest customers over to the Cloud. And finally, as an Amazon engineer, you get to own the full lifecycle of your systems, work on challenging problems at "Amazon Scale", and collaborate with some of the best in the business.

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