Amazon Web Services (AWS) is seeking a Field Engineer with an Electrical or Mechanical Engineering background to become part of a global engineering team, responsible for the design and continuous innovation of our rapidly expanding data center fleet. As engineers at Amazon, we are responsible for achieving a world class uptime for our customers via our resilient designs and cost effective systems. As one of our Field Engineers, you will work directly with our Construction, Operations, and Commissioning teams at the Data Centers within your assigned region to analyze problems with the existing fleet and implement solutions specific to your region, and across the global fleet. You will be the engineering representative for each issue. Other groups will look to you for engineering based solutions. Since we worked hard to develop a large scale fleet of Data Centers and drive continuous advancements and improvements within our designs, we will look to you to provide suggestions for improving the costs/performance/simplicity of our equipment and system designs. This will include reviewing existing designs and contributing your field experience to work with the Design Engineering team to develop new systems and equipment. In addition, as a Field Engineer, you will directly support construction and be a part of the process from site selection review through commissioning and, ultimately, site turnover. Amazon has a global presence, therefore, domestic and international travel will be necessary up to 25% of your time. Team work is absolutely necessary for us to accomplish our goals. You must be able to work within a team and depend on others to accomplish the required tasks. This includes working with internal groups as well as external suppliers and consultants, including utilities, manufacturers, vendors, and contractors.
If you have an understanding of the critical equipment needs for large infrastructure mission critical sites and equipment; especially data centers, and understand the construct-ability of varying designs, you may be a good fit.
