Amazon Web Services (AWS) Training & Certification (T&C) is looking for a Technical Program Manager (TPM) to be part of the T&C Release & Governance team. As a TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the needs of the business versus technical constraints. You will take large, complex programs and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional and technical user stories, and then deliver them in a successful and timely manner. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical thinking, and leadership are essential to success in this role.

In this role, you will:
* Lead planning, execution, and delivery of cross-functional projects and programs (i.e. break down complex business requirements into manageable projects, write functional specifications, create system design, solve complex technical problems, interface with multiple teams, and deliver solutions in a successful, agile, and timely manner)
* Scope and deliver large, complex projects end-to-end for new initiatives.
* Collect business and systems requirements from internal and external customers, driving project schedules from design to release, communicating to stakeholders and executives, and managing the production launch.
* Drive effective team work, communication, collaboration, and commitment across multiple disparate groups with competing priorities.
* Build project plans, balancing business needs with project risks and resource availability.
