Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon.com. We provide developers and their organizations with building block web services that allow them to innovate faster and to operate their software more cost-effectively. These services-in-the-cloud include on-demand compute capacity, storage, content delivery, querying of structured data, message queuing, and more.
We are seeking a dynamic, entrepreneurial Technical Program Manager to drive the technical implementation of a key security service that helps customers secure their data in AWS. You should be someone who wants to help build massively scalable digital security systems. As a key member of the team, you will have the unique opportunity to influence and shape the strategy for the next generation of our security platform and tools. You will also have complete end-to-end technical responsibility for one or more components - from defining the product roadmap to initiating, defining and executing the projects necessary to make the roadmap a reality. This is a highly visible role - offering the opportunity to interact at all levels of the division and the company - that is ideal for someone who wants to have a big impact on this fast-growing, cutting-edge, business.
- Work with AWS product managers and customers to understand the business requirements and translate these requirements into technical/functional specifications. Discover the true requirements underlying feature requests; recommend alternative technical approaches; lead engineering efforts to meet aggressive timelines. Balance the business needs versus technical constraints.
- Work with AWS engineering managers to coordinate the technical development effort, track/drive the project, and manage the operational implementation process. Anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management and make tradeoffs; encourage risk-taking behavior to maximize business benefit; identify interdependencies between concurrent projects to prevent downstream problems.
- Understand requirements from external auditors and guide AWS engineering towards implementing functionality that will help our customers meet their compliance obligations.
- Work with the product managers to launch these projects and provide ongoing technical support as appropriate. Evangelize within and outside Amazon to encourage a fast and smooth adoption of the services; be the primary conduit for gathering requirements for future enhancements; develop demos, sample and technical collateral as required.
