At Amazon, we're working to be the most customer-centric company on earth. To get there, we need exceptionally talented, bright, and driven people.

The Worldwide Sustainability (WWS) team capitalizes on Amazon’s scale, speed, and ability to build, invent and simplify, a more resilient and sustainable company.

- Be strategic about defining and building technical architecture that will scale for the long-term.
- Exhibit depth of knowledge and familiarity with technologies to identify and deliver innovative technical solutions that meet business needs and scale with growth.

Work closely with technical teams, design, and product/program management in an agile environment to deliver products to market.
- Influence and deliver across global teams, including away teams, other service owners and manage a distributed team.
- Manage and proactively communicate risks, prioritization and trade-offs across user experience, delivery, performance and operational support load.
