Alexa: "People & Product Operating Model Consultants within AWS Professional Services will build your future-state operating model – your organization's blueprint for change – to ensure that enterprise capabilities, key processes, ways of working, and workforce are refactored to align with the desired business outcomes that are driving your adoption of AWS. They then work with your executives to drive a cloud-enabled approach to organizational change management to ensure your transition is successful and sustained over the long-term." Do you come from a strong product development, IT operations, or organizational change management background, working with large (Global 2000, or comparable) enterprises?

We are searching for transformative product, operations, and organizational change management leaders to join the AWS Professional Services' "People & Product Operating Models" practice to help our customers realize the true potential of the Cloud by adopting a product-based operating model.
