We are looking for ambitious builders and proven leaders to join one of the world’s most innovative technology companies. If you have experience building large scale networks in China; enjoy solving deep technical, business and regulatory challenges; and thrive in a fast paced and collaborative environment this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for. As an early Internet pioneer, Amazon has built many leading technologies, and at Amazon Web Services (AWS) we made history by pioneering the cloud computing industry and offering these technologies to our customers – including Storage, Compute, and the largest suite of virtualized services (http:amazonaws.cn). From Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to Simple Storage Services (S3), our goal is to support customers and entire industries in China with their infrastructure needs. When you join the AWS Infrastructure Business Development team you can expect:
- Large scale opportunity. AWS pioneered the cloud computing industry and is by far the global leader, but we firmly believe that the industry is still in the very early stages and that our greatest days are ahead of us. Our hyper scale and hyper growth present amazing opportunities for individuals on our team to grow, learn and be challenged in ways that are truly unique to AWS.
- Big impact. Amazon’s culture is built around a culture of success in solving the world’s most challenging problems and executing the biggest opportunities. When you join the AWS infrastructure team, you don’t follow the industry standards, you define them. We play a crucial role in the development of new technologies, products, and entire industries. We are critical in defining strategic roadmaps, application architecture, application development and business development. Our team is filled with people who are more than infrastructure leaders, they are global business leaders.
- Best team. To tackle the largest opportunities and to have the biggest impact, you have to surround yourself with the smartest and most capable people. Amazon’s culture is built on the principle of finding the best people and empowering them with resources and opportunities to change the world around them. We challenge ourselves and each other to be bigger, better and faster for our customers. If you have great ideas and ambitions to be the best, Amazon is the place for you.
