Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leading cloud provider, providing virtualized infrastructure, storage, networking, messaging, and many other services to customers all over the world. Our services scale to staggering levels, are highly distributed, and are really fun to work with. The AWS Region Services team works to deliver the security, speed, and value of the AWS Cloud to U.S. Government focused customers.
Amazon's vision is to be the world's most consumer-centric company. Customer challenges in information security and scaling of data are growing incredibly fast. As a Program Manager on the AWS Region Services team, you will lead projects spanning infrastructure and software to address our customers' challenges. You will work across business, product, and development teams to balance cost, schedule, and technical variables to deliver projects that delight our customers. You will manage multiple high-impact projects, spanning a number of technology areas, and will drive communication with senior leadership.
In order to meet our customers' high standards we hold each other and ourselves to higher ones. You will work with really smart people who are fun to be around and who are always pushing you to learn more. You will be responsible for solving big problems, where answers need to be invented, and roads are not yet paved. You will be a team builder, driving self-organizing teams.
To be a successful candidate you need to be motivated by putting your customers first; you don't rest until the customer is happy. You need a strong technical background, are detail driven, and have excellent problem solving skills. You are self-motivated, a constant learner, and always curious about how things work. You are constantly trying to improve processes, solutions, and yourself. You learn from your mistakes, and you love working with really smart people. You need a solid understanding of project management fundamentals (e.g. business case, risk management, schedule, and negotiation). You are comfortable briefing senior leadership, you can communicate effectively with business and technical teams both verbally and in writing.
