The Innovation Technical Program Manager supports delivery of the newest generations of data center technologies from concept to production readiness. This role provides a unique opportunity to engage with advanced cloud infrastructure solutions and the exceptional people that develop them. The Innovation TPM applies their expertise to:
  • Develop the path for new architectural, mechanical, electrical, and systems engineering solutions and methods to reach maturity for global deployment
  • Evaluate the requirements and actions that close the gap between concept and readiness for these new technologies in our global infrastructure
  • Gain concurrence on production readiness items including integration requirements, financial sustainability, and supplier qualification and diversity
  • Plan for global and regional specifics, test and validation, deployment schedules, and similar production readiness actions
  • Collaborate across organizations (Engineering, Development, Finance, Operations) and be the linchpin for successful delivery of technologies

    Amazon's vision is to be the world's most customer-centric company, and this role is key to that vision. These technologies are essential for meeting our customers’ expectations for service and value and meeting Amazon’s goals for efficiency, speed, and reliability as we continue expanding our data centers to hyper-scale. As an ideal candidate, you:
  • Are great at solving problems
  • Possess experience managing challenging, engineering and highly-technical programs
  • Build trust and relationships with different stakeholders (e.g., Engineering, Development, Finance, Operations)
  • Are comfortable addressing and resolving ambiguity -- building from a blank sheet of paper and working with brand new tech
  • Recognize and appreciate diversity of thought and perspectives

    Each day you will interact with different teams responsible for engineering, development, finance, integration, and operation of these complex technology programs. You prioritize your activities to support data center product development, solve problems and blockers, and focus on the actions that are most impactful for program success.
    If you meet these qualifications, exude passion, and enjoy the challenge of innovative projects at hyper-scale, this job is for you!
