Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) delivers storage for the Internet. It provides a simple web services interface that customers use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives them access to the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon itself uses to run its own global network of web sites. We maximize benefits of our scale and pass them on to our customers. By doing this, we’re creating a fundamental shift in how businesses think about managing their storage needs.
We are looking for a CUSTOMER-OBSESSED, TEAM-DRIVEN, EFFICIENCY GURU to take our capacity planning and management to the next level. How can you tell if that’s you? You LOVE metrics, benchmarking, and forecasting. You’re always on the hunt to reduce waste in any given system, and you find simple, systemic fixes to improve them. You’re great at leading cross-functional teams of engineers, analysts, and program managers, and you collaborate extremely well with other teams, too. You’re resourceful, finding ways to say “yes” to new demand. You inspire others to tackle super-difficult problems. Finally, you hunger to give customers what they want: highly performant, low-cost, always-on storage.
In this role, you’ll be a technical leader, but you’ll also be a business leader. You’ll drive key goals with big impacts on financial performance. You’ll drive forecasting and ordering using predictive models. You’ll collaborate with sales/marketing, too, and you’ll work with our finance team to measure and improve our cost profile. In this position, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Own S3’s efficiency goals and design and lead new ones
- Develop the careers of your people, actively mentoring them
- Lead and enhance the capacity planning function for S3, from demand to live
- Enhance our capacity management systems and processes
- Lead the team that manages data center entry and exit
- Find new ways to improve the efficiency and measurement of the S3 operating platform
- Present on S3 efficiency to AWS executive management
