    • Own the design process, implementation, and verification of Redshift components leveraging modern agile software engineering methodologies.
    • Translate functional and technical requirements into detailed design documents and code.
    • Participate in code and design reviews to maintain our high development standards.
    • Have responsibility for overall system architecture, scalability, reliability, and performance.
    • Work with other teams to deliver and operate large scale, distributed services in the cloud.
    • Mentor other engineers, define our exemplary technical culture, and help build a fast-growing team.
