Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) enables customers of all sizes to run their applications on our industry leading cloud infrastructure. Customers around the world rely on EC2 to provide elastic, high performance, secure and cost effective resources to scale their infrastructure to keep up with their changing business needs

As customers around the world move to the cloud, we are in need of effective Product Managers to understand how customers in different geographies, deploy manage and pay for their current infrastructure and how EC2 should adjust our product capabilities and positioning to fit the unique needs of our global customer base.

With Amazon EC2, companies run their systems in the cloud with complete control, reliably, at scale, and only pay for the capacity they actually use. The EC2 Efficiency team helps make the cloud more elastic and scalable through programs and demand shaping services that free up capacity and increase customer satisfaction. We are looking for an experienced Technical Product Manager excelling in automation and analytical skills to join our team, and lead an EC2 Capacity, Efficiency and Optimization effort and drive customer engagement automation to the next level.

In this role you will play a pivotal role defining product requirements, go-to-market strategy, and dedicated to the needs of our customers. Given the breadth of the EC2 service this role will require coordination across many internal teams and will be visible at the highest levels of the company. You'll work with the largest AWS services and operational stakeholders to prioritize roadmap features, and spearhead the definition of new capabilities through expertly crafted business requirements documents. The team is results oriented, and has dedicated engineering resources focused on reinventing the way our customers automate and scale their EC2 resources.

• Can think big, are able to break down the big picture, and deliver on goals that will get us there
• Manage the entire product life cycle from strategic planning to execution
• Have an instinctive understanding of a good product, and can raise the bar on customer-focused thinking among team members with reasoned, data-driven analysis
• Can dive into technical details and ask engineers insightful questions about the services and dependencies you influence
