Job Description

Amazon Web Services is innovating new ways of building massively scalable distributed systems and delivering the next generation of cloud services that support commercial and public sector customers around the world. We hold high standards for our computer systems and the services we deliver to our customers: our systems are highly secure, highly reliable, highly available, all while functioning at massive scale. Our employees are smart, passionate about the cloud, driven to serve customers, and fun to work with.

We launch new regions around the world to meet the growing demand for AWS Services. Regions are the primary means by which AWS delivers services. Planning new region launches requires exceptionally talented and driven people to align with build activities, evolving best practices and requirements, and improvements in design and operations. We are looking for a dynamic, organized self-starter to join AWS to plan new region builds across the globe. In this role, your primary responsibility will be developing the requirements and repeatable processes for new AWS region builds while working with stakeholders and executives throughout AWS. This role is critical for continuing AWS infrastructure and service expansion worldwide as we develop opportunities to support strategic geographic locations and large customers. If you have strong product management, IT infrastructure and/or programming experience, a strong desire to improve and automate, and can communicate highly technical concepts to audiences at different stages in the AWS journey, we'd like to speak with you.

You will have the opportunity to work closely with Service Teams, Infrastructure, Product Teams, and Business Development to design and deliver new AWS regions. You will work with all stakeholders to develop plans and requirements that ensure smooth transition of new regions from design phase to build phase. You will assess risks, anticipate issues, overcome technical obstacles, make difficult trade-off decisions, and balance business needs and technical constraints, particularly when unique requirements arise for customers or countries.

Successful candidates will have a strong technical background, be detail oriented, have excellent problem solving abilities, and have a continuous desire to improve and automate. You will accurately represent program status to senior leadership. Your program management expertise and operational excellence will influence the team's decisions and drive secure and scaleable solutions. You should be passionate about delivering great customer experiences and with researching and developing new region build methodologies.
