    Want to work on vital projects that interact with all parts of a large and growing organization like AWS?
    Amazon Web Services is looking for a Technical Program Manager for AWS Incident Management. Amazon is building some of the largest distributed systems in the world and we need great people to help run cross-functional programs that will touch and improve all of them.
    The AWS Technical Operations team is seeking a Technical Program Manager with strong problem-solving skills, excellent communication skills, the ability to influence business and technical leaders in a dynamic environment, and the desire to be a visible contributor to our operational culture.

The candidate should be open to new challenges, strong at multi-tasking, innovative, creative, self-directed and a great team player. The candidate should drive continuous process improvement, and collaborate effectively with cross-functional operational and development teams to solve problems and implement new solutions.

    Specifically, the candidate will help run some of our most critical cross-AWS programs that baseline the entire organization to a high bar for operational excellence and a culture of improving the customer experience. This is a great opportunity to become an expert in AWS architecture, design, and operations and to learn from industry leaders.
