AWS Infrastructure Services owns the design, planning, delivery, and operation of all AWS global infrastructure. In other words, we’re the people who keep the cloud running. We support all AWS data centers and all of the servers, storage, networking, power, and cooling equipment that ensure our customers have continual access to the innovation they rely on. We work on the most challenging problems, with thousands of variables impacting the supply chain — and we’re looking for talented people who want to help.

You’ll join a diverse team of software, hardware, and network engineers, supply chain specialists, security experts, operations managers, and other vital roles. You’ll collaborate with people across AWS to help us deliver the highest standards for safety and security while providing seemingly infinite capacity at the lowest possible cost for our customers. And you’ll experience an inclusive culture that welcomes bold ideas and empowers you to own them to completion.

Are you an engineer with a passion for data center design and looking for a challenge to chart your own course? If so, we are looking for you to help us make history.

AWS data centers are the foundation upon which our software and services operates to meet the growing demands of our customers. This role provides the opportunity to collaborate with business development, design engineers, data center operations professionals, external vendors and consultants, and other cross-functional teams to assess and select colocation facilities that meet our business requirements.

You will be able to showcase your in-depth understanding of data center design, engineering, and operations of infrastructure common to data centers, telecommunications facilities and other critical environment infrastructure.
You will work directly with internal business teams and with colocation vendors to identify, document, and resolve any operational/design deficiencies which could impact a site’s capability or availability.

You will have opportunities to influence standards for data center products, build and improve processes, and to guide the direction of our colocation data center portfolio on a global scale. So, if you are a strong leader with solid data center mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural (MEPS) infrastructure design engineering experience, Amazon will present a fast paced, fun, and exciting work environment that is unique in every aspect and offers an exceptional rewarding opportunity for you.

You will be responsible for the following:
Conduct site assessments against AWS standards for collocation data centers, legacy facility upgrades, and general capital endeavors.
Perform risk analysis and availability calculations for vendor owned and operated collocation data center’s infrastructure to determine fit-for-use/fit-for-service.
Influence AWS’ design and specification requirements to meet our business needs for AWS colocation products.
Investigate and document root-cause failure analysis associated with infrastructure and equipment failures.
Work with vendors and local agencies having jurisdiction to ensure compliance with federal, state and municipal requirements and codes.
Collaborate with engineering, operations, and commissioning teams to properly test and validate the installation, operation, and performance of critical electrical/mechanical/fire suppression/controls systems/structural systems.
Support Operations, data scientists and other business partners to determine utilization, efficiency, and performance analysis on critical systems.
Travel to Data Center sites as required - International & Domestic (up to 50%)

Key job responsibilities
