Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. The AWS Cloud infrastructure is built around Regions and Availability Zones (AZs). AWS Regions provide multiple, physically separated and isolated AZ which are connected with low latency, high throughput, and highly redundant networking. These AZ's offer AWS customers an easier and more effective way to design and operate applications and databases, making them more highly available, fault tolerant, and scalable than traditional single datacenter infrastructures or multi-datacenter infrastructures. How would you like to come be part of the team that builds and procures that low latency, high throughput, and highly redundant network?
Amazon Web Services is looking an Infrastructure Technical Program Manager to support the North and South America Metro Fiber Planning and Acquisition (MFPA) team who manage bulk and ring network fiber connectivity at AWS AZ's.
