Do you like to empower customers to build on AWS? Do you have experience driving operational excellence for programs and love being hands-on? AWS Data Lab is a global service offering, designed to accelerate customers building data and analytics solutions on AWS. As a Data Lab Program Manager, you will coordinate the underlying operations of the Data Lab and play a critical role in customer experience.

Key responsibilities include:

· Managing a pipeline of hundreds of customers that are eager to leverage the Data Lab

· Scheduling customer engagements

· Aligning Subject Matter Experts to support each lab

· Managing event communications with customers and account teams

· Collecting customer feedback

· Measuring key program metrics
