Our vision is to make Marketplace one stop shop for buying and selling software just like Amazon.com is for retail.

Our teams take on some of the hardest scalability, performance, and distributed computing challenges to deliver meaningful reporting to AWS Marketplace sellers. We process millions of records daily using stream processing techniques (Kinesis, S3, SQS) and handle artifacts through the latest in database technologies (AWS Redshift). We process big data and provide multiple tools for our customers to understand their marketplace business from quote to cash lifecycle.

You should be somebody who enjoys working on large data sets, is customer-centric, is passionate about building quality ETL and related software as well as achieving operational excellence.
