Global Technical Lead - Blockchain

Job ID: 1701497 | Amazon Web Services, Inc.


AWS is one of Amazon’s fastest growing businesses, servicing millions of customers all over the world, reshaping the way global enterprises consume information technology, and powering the developers who are building the next generation of global industry leaders. AWS customers include some of the most innovative startups like Netflix, Airbnb and Instagram, as well as some of the largest global enterprises like Shell, Unilever, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for a blockchain-focused Global technical Lead to build an ecosystem of partners with solutions that span a broad portfolio of blockchain services. This is a hands-on, highly technical position for someone who can dive deep, build complex AWS-optimized architectures, and develop a long-term strategy with AWS business development and service teams.

You must have deep technical experience working with technologies related to blockchain. You must have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of the technology, including concepts like distributed consensus, fault tolerance, and protocols. Familiarity with implementation details for deployed solutions, as well as specific use-cases like supply chain management, secure data sharing, and payments is essential. You must be familiar with the community of solution providers, software vendors, consultants, and others working in the blockchain space, and you will leverage this knowledge to help us decide where AWS should invest from a partnership and product perspective.

You must have great communication skills and be very technical, with the ability to impress AWS customers at any level, from executive to developer. Previous experience with AWS is desired but not required, provided you have experience building solutions that run in virtualized environments. You will get the opportunity to work directly with senior engineers at both top software vendors and AWS service teams, influencing their roadmaps and driving innovation.

This position can be based in any major US city where AWS has significant operations. Relocation assistance offered internationally.

Up to 20% travel is typical for this role.

Work/Life Balance

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
