DESCRIPTION

AWS Infrastructure Services owns the design, planning, delivery, and operation of all AWS global infrastructure. In other words, we’re the people who keep the cloud running. We support all AWS data centers and all of the servers, storage, networking, power, and cooling equipment that ensure our customers have continual access to the innovation they rely on. We work on the most challenging problems, with thousands of variables impacting the supply chain — and we’re looking for talented people who want to help.

You’ll join a diverse team of software, hardware, and network engineers, supply chain specialists, security experts, operations managers, and other vital roles. You’ll collaborate with people across AWS to help us deliver the highest standards for safety and security while providing seemingly infinite capacity at the lowest possible cost for our customers. And you’ll experience an inclusive culture that welcomes bold ideas and empowers you to own them to completion.

In this position, you will play a key role in operational and process improvement within Amazon Web Services, where we have a history and tradition of innovative technologies and services. Reporting to the Data Center Capacity Delivery organization, you will have the opportunity to partner across the global AWS Infrastructure Services organization to shape the future of the AWS profile and tempo to which we deliver.

Data Center Capacity Delivery is growing the One-Intake Program team function in scale and complexity in order to deliver capacity on time to meet customer business requirements. The team is seeking a highly-skilled & driven Technical Program Manager who will help drive the team toward our mission of building durable and reliable data-informed processes within AWS Infrastructure. The ideal candidate has experience managing global Infrastructure projects/programs; developing, monitoring, and reporting project/program health metrics; leading cross-functional teams; developing and implementing change management plans; training and mentoring performance; and driving position readiness improvement. As a Technical Program Manager within this team focused on new product launch preparation, you will work with cross-organizational teams from Services, Hardware Engineering, Network Engineering, Software development and Capacity Planning teams to prepare for new product end to end launch readiness with automation and operational process in place.

The primary responsibilities from the Technical Program Manager include, but are not limited to, the following: - Lead planning, execution, and delivery tasks of multiple project/programs simultaneously.
- Determine process health metrics and key performance indicators and develop data visualization reports illustrating process health.
- Identify process improvement opportunities and gather user requirements with key internal customers.
- Develop and implement scalable, data-driven process improvement/automated solutions.
- Develop standard operating procedures, change/communication plans, and project/program-level status updates.

- Anticipate potential issues and risks, and escalate appropriately and in a timely manner.
- Remain flexible to changing priorities and open to new ideas.
- Keep the customer experience as the primary focus.

About the team

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. We pioneered cloud computing and never stopped innovating — that’s why customers from the most successful startups to Global 500 companies trust our robust suite of products and services to power their businesses.

If your career is just starting, hasn’t followed a traditional path, or includes alternative experiences, don’t let it stop you from applying.

We value work-life harmony. Achieving success at work should never come at the expense of sacrifices at home, which is why we strive for flexibility as part of our working culture. When we feel supported in the workplace and at home, there’s nothing we can’t achieve in the cloud.

Here at AWS, it’s in our nature to learn and be curious. Our employee-led affinity groups foster a culture of inclusion that empower us to be proud of our differences.
