DESCRIPTION

Come join Amazon EC2 in Cape Town - the team behind the most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform in the world.

Amazon EC2 started in Cape Town in 2006 as a key AWS service, and now forms a building block for many of the more than 200 services in AWS.

We are looking for a Technical Program Manager to join EC2. You will engage on energising and interesting problems, and define and deliver on goals which require changes across many different teams and services.

You will need a technical background to understand and critique solutions, spot potential problems, and communicate how a problem will be solved to others.

  • Our team is very data driven so you’ll need to use data and metrics to support your narrative. Amazon Leadership principles guide our great collaborative and innovative culture;
  • many other companies still only speak Agile, whereas we have been doing it for many years.

    Work / Life Harmony

    Our team is Cape Town based, and under normal circumstances, we work from the office. That said, we understand that life is not 9-5pm for everyone and are happy to discuss a flexible working schedule that supports your personal life.

    From time-to-time, we work with our colleagues across the world meaning we accommodate the different time zones.

    Mentorship & Career Growth

    Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.

    We care about your career growth. We try to align projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop and grow, and enable them to take on more complexity in the future.

    Inclusive Team Culture

    We believe a diverse group of people with different background and experiences are a catalyst to generating a breadth of ideas, therefore we do all we can to attract and nurture this in our team.

    BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

  • Degree in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent working experience
  • 5+ years experience leading complex and / or large projects across multiple teams
  • A technical background : you won’t be expected to write any code, but do need experience engaging on the details of the solutions which support the projects / products / services that you have delivered
  • PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS
