    Do you have passion for how the cloud can accelerate innovation for game developers and enable new gaming experiences? At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we are obsessed with helping customers revolutionize the way they build and run their games, helping them bring their ideas to market faster and at a lower cost. Our platform provides convenient access to an extensive selection of cloud computing building blocks and game services such as GameLift and GameSparks.

    If you have a knack for building differentiating solutions, compelling value propositions, and executing customer and ecosystem adoption programs, consider joining AWS.

This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done. You will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints. You have the ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role.
