The AWS World Wide Revenue Operations (WWRO) Revenue technology team is responsible for publishing Daily Estimated Revenue (DER) and
monthly Amortized Sales Revenue (ASR). DER and ASR are used by downstream customers in AWS Finance, Accounting, Sales
Operations, Segmentation & Planning (S&P), Data & Analytics and Compensation to set quotas, manage sales goals, forecast,
and derive business insights. We collect and process billions of usage and billing transactions every single day and relate it to the largest data feed supported by Salesforce.com. We transform this raw data into actionable information in the Data Lake and make it available to our internal service owners to analyze their business and service our external customers.
We are truly leading the way to disrupt the big data industry. We are accomplishing this vision by bringing to bear Big Data technologies like Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) in addition to data warehouse technologies like Spectrum to build a data platform capable of scaling with the ever-increasing volume of data produced by AWS services.

You should have deep expertise in the design, creation, management, and business use of large datasets, across a variety of data platforms. You should have excellent business and interpersonal skills to be able to work with business owners to understand data requirements, and to build ETL to ingest the data into the data lake. You should be an authority at crafting, implementing, and operating stable, scalable, low cost solutions to flow data from production systems into the data lake. Above all you should be passionate about working with huge data sets and someone who loves to bring datasets together to answer business questions and drive growth.
