Many of these customers seek help from AWS Professional Services in their transition to a cloud-based IT operating model.

You will be a positive influencer across diverse teams, be able to effectively rally support for your initiative, and be able to help technical teams create simple solutions to meet engagement delivery goals. You possess effective communication skills, can operate independently, and have a consistent track record of delivery. You are detail-oriented, and drive towards improved performance while advocating for customer needs.

· Develop and manage projects from ideation through execution, including project scope, timeline, and project execution; coordinating remote work closely with field teams.
· Address bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs and balance the business needs versus technical constraints
· Develop business metrics and KPIs to increase adoption and develop audit mechanisms (e.g., metrics, reporting, evaluation standards) to track and report on adoption.
· Provide consistent, executive-level reporting on project status and outcomes
· Demonstrate effective communication skills (both verbal and written) across all levels of the business.
· Influence senior leaders across AWS Professional Services, and communicate progress, changes, issues, and resolutions clearly to all stakeholders.

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have thirteen employee-led affinity groups, reaching 85,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here. We are a customer-obsessed organization—leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. As such, this is a customer facing role in a hybrid delivery model. Project engagements include remote delivery methods and onsite engagement that will include travel to customer locations as needed.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

This is a customer facing role. You will be required to travel to client locations and deliver professional services when needed.
