Have you ever wanted to work on state of the art Big Data, Query and Serverless systems that will make a lasting impact on technology?

AWS Athena is looking for Software Dev Engineers who have the passion to tackle tough problems by bringing extensible, cutting edge query technologies to customers around the world. We are looking to reinvent what a Data Warehouse on the cloud can do.

Athena is a full ANSI SQL query engine that works with a variety of standard data formats, including CSV, JSON, ORC, Avro, and Parquet. Athena is ideal for quick, ad-hoc querying but it can also handle complex analysis, including large joins, window functions, and arrays.

Athena is highly available and executes queries using compute resources across multiple facilities and multiple devices in each facility. Athena uses Amazon S3 as its underlying data store, making your data highly available and durable.
