Principal Technical Program Manager - Cloud Adoption
Company: Amazon.com, Inc.
Posted on: June 10, 2021
Amazon's eCommerce Infrastructure Services organization is
looking for passionate, results-oriented, inventive and influential
technical program managers to lead our worldwide efforts to define
and drive a secure, cloud-embracing enterprise development
environment for the tens of thousands of developers that build
technology for Amazon's Retail customers.
As a Principal Technical Program Manager, you will collaborate
closely with other technical leaders across both AWS and our
Consumer business, driving enterprise requirements into AWS
services. As AWS' largest customer, you will help them build
business cases for new public-facing capabilities, and in some
cases, drive engineering teams within your own group to build those
AWS technologies yourself. You will manage development of
enterprise cloud technologies that extend AWS primitives in ways
that can be later adopted by AWS and their other enterprise
customers as needed.
This group is also responsible for a range of critical, software
development frameworks that form the very foundation of Amazon's
distributed web-services architecture, used by tens of thousands of
remote services that comprise our Retail businesses, as well as
forming the foundation of many of the largest and most visible
public AWS services. Almost every corner of Amazon's technology
stack, from subsidiaries like Audible and Zappos, to our Consumer
Retail Websites around the world (www.amazon.*), Kindle and AWS
itself all depend, on our technology in one way or another to build
their software and run their business. As a Principal TPM, you will
be responsible for owning and driving the vision for
revolutionizing our frameworks and the way in which the entire
engineering community within Amazon's retail division builds web
and backend applications.
In addition to building the technology extensions to AWS you
will play a pivotal role in driving a new cultural and technology
direction for our consumer business, moving the larger engineering
community for Amazon's consumer business away from proprietary
service based technology implementations and towards embracing
those native AWS solutions such as Lambda and ECS and making other
AWS services easier to use and thus a more natural choice for
components like security, storage, deployment etc.
You will have experience leading diverse, large, highly
technical cross-company-large-scale distributed technical
architecture/cultural changes, influencing engineers and
engineering leaders at all levels, and defining engineering best
practices as it relates to the secure adoption of and migration to

executive leaders across the company as easily as you can convey
key technical ideas and directions to engineers at all levels. You
will have strong bias for action and a history of delivering the
right results, a critical asset to ensure that Amazon will be able
to continue to leverage new cloud technologies as they become
available and to keep abreast of other innovation that's happening
across our businesses outside of AWS.

internal customers as a key stakeholder and advocate for their
goals around adopting AWS as a platform. This is an opportunity to
inform AWS' roadmap by identifying technical blockers and new
feature opportunities. You must be able to engage with both
technical and business teams to collect and refine requirements,
