Principal Product Manager - RDS

Vancouver, BC
Full Time
We're looking for an accomplished product manager to play a significant role on the Amazon RDS team. RDS powers some of the most important Internet companies on Earth.

We provide a simple-to-use and reliable relational database provisioning and management service on top of PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, MariaDB and MySQL, in addition to our own highly scalable database product, Amazon Aurora.

Our goal is to be the best DBA a customer can find, providing the best database technology in the world, enabling companies to accelerate their growth and maintain as many 9's of reliability and uptime as they need on their most crucial systems. Customers use RDS in thousands of different ways for experimentation, startup acceleration and mission-critical enterprise workloads, in fields as varied as tax preparation, space mission data analysis, business analytics, IOT data processing, and social networks, to name a few.

We run the largest database fleet in the world, and we work hard to deliver features, security, durability, availability, performance, and scalability to our customers every day. Amazon RDS is one of the largest and fastest-growing businesses in the AWS cloud with no end in sight as businesses are rediscovering the strength of relational databases and the easy application development that leverages mutable schemas, scalable ACID transactions, and modern language interfaces.

Do you have the experience to manage a business at scale while keeping your foot on the gas and continuing to provide our customers with the features they're asking for as well as the ones they haven't asked for yet? We need somebody who has a proven track record of guiding a successful business to be even more successful. As customers move to the cloud, they are also finding that it's time to move both upscale from less performant open source databases and down-cost from proprietary databases.

You will set the product vision and customer value proposition, define the product roadmap that will deliver compelling new service offerings, establish the product requirements, and then drive the product to a successful launch.

The successful candidate must have exceptional problem solving skills, strong business judgment, and demonstrated experience leading cross-functional teams. We are looking for a proven ability to execute both strategically and tactically, and someone who is excited to take on new, ambiguous projects that will be industry defining. This position requires a solid technical background, and the candidate should be customer-focused with a passion for the cloud and information technology. Past experience in the database area is a plus.

Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

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.
