Do you enjoy working on large-scale distributed systems? Do you want to influence how the world interacts with and analyzes large data sets across a number of industries and use cases? AWS EMR Serverless team is looking for smart engineers to work on new customer facing features. If you want to work with a team solving interesting challenges in distributed systems, building solutions for large scale problems while closely collaborating with customers directly, please talk to us!

Amazon EMR Serverless is a new deployment option for Amazon EMR. EMR Serverless provides a serverless runtime environment that simplifies the operation of analytics applications that use the latest open source frameworks, such as Apache Spark and Apache Hive. With EMR Serverless, you don’t have to configure, optimize, secure, or operate clusters to run applications with these frameworks. EMR Serverless helps you avoid over- or under-provisioning resources for your data processing jobs. EMR Serverless automatically determines the resources that the application needs, gets these resources to process your jobs, and releases the resources when the jobs finish. For use cases where applications need a response within seconds, such as interactive data analysis, you can pre-initialize the resources that the application needs when you create the application. With EMR Serverless, you'll continue to get the benefits of Amazon EMR, such as open source compatibility, concurrency, and optimized runtime performance for popular frameworks.
