Hi all,

I work as a systems engineer for Amazon's Glacier team, which provides a 
long term archive storage solution for customers.  Think S3 but cheaper, 
but with it taking multiple hours to retrieve your data, while keeping 
the same durability guarantees.

My team is looking to increase the number of sysadmins / systems 
engineers employed so that we can get on to some interesting projects in 
our road-map that we just don't have the man hours for at the moment, to 
work with the team in one of the Seattle offices.

We're ideally looking for people with some existing experience as a 
sysadmin, with good linux skills, and some knowledge of scripting 
(python would be advantageous, but not essential).  The team mostly 
operates in a devops-ish fashion, developers and systems engineers share 
on call burden, and developers are as responsible as the systems 
engineers (if not more so) for the smooth running of the service in 
production, and all share in the oncall responsibilities.

If you think you might be interested, or have any questions, feel free 
drop me an email off-list.

On a related note, following on from some conversations I've had 
recently with both colleagues and non-amazon friends, I'd like to 
emphasise that even if you don't think you're good enough to work for 
Amazon or Google or whoever, don't let that stop you from applying.  
Don't listen to imposter syndrome (which lies, a lot) and don't let it 
stop you from going places you want to with your career.  Even if that's 
not applying to join my team ;)
