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.

As a TPM on the AWS CDS team you will lead projects and programs spanning Infrastructure and Software across multiple organizations to ensure that our systems and services scale to meet diverse customer requirements in this dynamic and rapid-growth world.

This Senior Technical Program Manager role will manage large-scale delivery and play a major role in Region Services through interfacing with networking, encryption, and and software deployments. You will be heavily involved in technical discussions to be a voice of realism in the room and deconflict dependencies with customers' and internal AWS teams' requirements.

Your skills are needed to be both broad and deep. You will find, create, and analyze data about every aspect of the services and the regions. You will drive process and technology improvements that reduce friction for engineers and proactively address issues that help to scale AWS solutions to meet a range of customer needs around the world. You will work across business, product, and engineering teams and balance cost, schedule, and technical variables to create tools or processes that help to delight our customers.

To succeed you need to be motivated by putting your customers first; you understand what the customers need and you don't rest until we deliver it. You are dedicated to details, with a strong technical background and excellent problem-solving skills. You learn from your mistakes, and you love working with really smart people. You have a solid understanding of project management fundamentals (e.g. business case, RTG, risk management, schedule management, and negotiation). You are comfortable briefing senior leadership, even when you have bad news; you can communicate effectively with business and technical teams both verbally and in writing.

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally.
