Full Job Description

Amazon's network is a key differentiator for Amazon Cloud Computing and Web Services (AWS), enabling the global operation of thousands of applications across hundreds of thousands of servers worldwide. As our regions continue to grow, we are looking for a networks-focused Senior Technical Infrastructure Program Manager to execute and deliver our solutions, and help us to continue to build the largest network in the world., The ideal candidate will be an experienced Senior Technical Infrastructure Program Manager who will be responsible for leading multiple simultaneous networking programs in a highly cross-functional environment which includes internal customers, network engineering, network deployment and operations teams, as well as external vendors.

Experience working with large scale networks and network automation and provisioning systems is a distinct advantage.
