Full Time


Amazon WorkSpaces is leading the cloud desktop revolution and we are looking for a Principal Technical Program Manager (TPM) to join our leadership team in Bellevue. We recently kicked off work on a new green field product and are in need of a rock star TPM to influence and drive the direction of the program. This is a challenging and ambiguous area with a high degree of visibility, including managing key relationships with external partners. If you are an organized, technical, and data-driven leader looking to help drive the direction for a new area within AWS, let’s chat.

Amazon WorkSpaces spans a wide range of technologies, including streaming protocols, massive desktop fleets, SDKs/APIs, web consoles, and multiple client endpoints. The right candidate will be comfortable serving as a technical leader across multiple engineering organizations, driving important architecture changes to deliver high quality, scalable, fault tolerant and resilient solutions to our customers.

If you have a passion for technology and want to change the way people use computers – come join us in making history!

This team is a good fit for you if:

· You are a passionate learner and motivated to take on new challenges.
· You want to have fun; surround yourself with a highly talented pool of engineers that like to solve complex problems, but also enjoy work life balance.
