Job summary Amazon Redshift Connectivity team is responsible for building client drivers, connectors and tools that allow an ever growing ecosystem of client applications to access Amazon Redshift through different programming languages and platforms.
Amazon Redshift is a rapidly growing, fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. It enables customers to dramatically increase their query performance when analyzing virtually any size data set using the same SQL-based business intelligence tools they use today. They can launch a fully operational service with a few clicks for as low as under $1000 per terabyte per year. Amazon Redshift manages all the work needed to set up, operate, and scale a data warehouse, from provisioning capacity and installing software to monitoring and backing up the cluster, to applying patches and upgrades.

Work on a disruptive product that's still in its early stages
Solve challenging problems that will revolutionize database computing in the cloud
Build a product that will leverage the scale of resources available in the cloud
