We are looking for developers with C++, Java, or Ruby experience to help build and operate innovative pricing models and markets in the cloud computing space. We are solving exciting problems, like: building out and optimizing the software behind our pricing models (think of everything it would take to build and scale a stock exchange for computing resources); empowering developers from around the world to migrate their applications to these new pricing models; and, developing a platform for other AWS teams to build their own versions of our pricing models (e.g. Amazon RDS Reserved Instances). For example, we have already launched the first version of a product called Spot Instances, where a customer can bid for their compute capacity.
