Amazon Manager of Network Infra, Metro Fiber Commercial and Planning in Seattle, Washington


Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. The AWS Cloud infrastructure is built around Regions and Availability Zones (AZs). AWS Regions provide multiple, physically separated and isolated Availability Zones, which are connected with low latency, high throughput, and highly redundant networking. These Availability Zones offer AWS customers an easier and more effective way to design and operate cutting edge AI applications and Machine Learning databases, making them more highly available, fault tolerant, and scalable than traditional single datacenter infrastructures or multi-datacenter infrastructures. How would you like to come be part of the team that builds out that low latency, high throughput, and highly redundant network?

You will have a demonstrated ability to think strategically about business, product, and technical challenges, with the ability to knock down roadblocks for your partner deployment teams.

You will work closely with an active team of industry experts to identify and define optimal solutions to Amazon's ongoing needs to connect its data centers. By applying a unique blend of business and technology experience, you will work closely with both outside and internal teams to find creative, cost effective, and often innovative solutions to meet Amazon's ongoing growth and expansion needs across North and South America. The ideal candidate will be excited about the incredible opportunity cloud computing represents and will be passionate about building great teams that deliver high quality services. You will be customer centric and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment that requires strong technical and business judgment and great communication skills.
