Come be a leader on a new team that is reimagining an entire category of business applications from the ground up. Work with the latest technology in cloud computing, AI and ML to impact millions of people and revolutionize the way we think about our work. We can€™t talk about specifics just yet, but the things we are working on are in response to loud and clear feedback from customers about the pain points they and their teams deal with every day.

At AWS, you€™ll experience the benefits of working in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment at one of the world's leading innovation-driven companies.

This position represents a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor within a fast-growing business and help shape the business, product offerings, and technology. A successful candidate will bring deep technical and cloud service expertise, strong business acumen and judgment, ability to define visionary, ground breaking products, desire to have an industry wide impact and ability to work within a fast moving, startup environment in a large company to rapidly deliver services that have a broad business impact.
