Amazon are seeking a Technical Infrastructure Program Manager (TIPM) to support our European Data Center infrastructure growth initiatives. The TIPM will lead cross functional teams to drive the implementation and deployment of data center expansion projects to meet the demands of our rapidly growing business.

Our Technical Program Managers are strong communicators both written and verbally and lead multi-discipline, highly technical physical infrastructure project teams. They lead teams of internal and external stakeholders through all stages of the Data Center development lifecycle from initial site due diligence through Construction and into Operation. The core role of the TIPM is to deliver capacity for our customers through developing delivery programs and working closely with stakeholder teams to identify risks and resolve issues to ensure those programs are delivered on time and within budget.

The TIPM partners with various stakeholder teams during data center delivery; Real Estate to support the feasibility and selection of new sites; Energy to ensure suitable grid connection is available; Design Engineering to coordinate project specific inputs, constraints and risks into designs; Procurement to secure on time delivery of critical equipment; Construction Management to track budget & progress; and Operations to complete the project with successful handover, to name but a few.

AWS Infrastructure Services owns the design, planning, delivery, and operation of all AWS global infrastructure. In other words, we’re the people who keep the cloud running. We support all AWS data centers and all of the servers, storage, networking, power, and cooling equipment that ensure our customers have continual access to the innovation they rely on. We work on the most challenging problems, with thousands of variables impacting the supply chain — and we’re looking for talented people who want to help.

You’ll join a diverse team of software, hardware, and network engineers, supply chain specialists, security experts, operations managers, and other vital roles. You’ll collaborate with people across AWS to help us deliver the highest standards for safety and security while providing seemingly infinite capacity at the lowest possible cost for our customers. And you’ll experience an inclusive culture that welcomes bold ideas and empowers you to own them to completion.

Key job responsibilities

  • Take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces. Clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes to internal cross-functional and remote teams. Up to 25% travel is envisaged within EMEA.
  • Be responsible for end-to-end program delivery from pre-contract design up to final handover to Operations of Colo, Hybrid Colo & AWS Leased/Owned Data Centers in the EMEA region.
  • Manage interface between internal (Real Estate, Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Infrastructure Deployment, Networking, Operations, Security, Fiber, Finance etc.) and external stakeholders (Contractors, Colo Vendors) to ensure on time and on budget delivery of Data Center projects.
  • Build and maintaining overall delivery program and project budget, submitting Capital Allocation Requests to Senior leadership to secure finance for project delivery.
  • Work with Capacity Planning, Energy and Real Estate teams to develop short & long term build strategies to meet forecast demand.
  • Support continuous process improvement through leading workflow updates, documenting & implementing lessons learned and sharing knowledge across delivery teams to ensure EMEA wide efficiency improvements.
  • Regularly report to senior leadership on status of key project metrics vs. commitment of your projects.
