  • Job Description

    Amazon QuickSight is AWS’s first fully managed, native cloud based data visualization product that enables customers to extract insights from their data, quickly and easily even with no technical knowledge. We are re-inventing business intelligence with the goal of allowing everyone to make data driven decisions.

    We recently launched a new innovative usage based pricing model that is a huge differentiator in the BI market and are now looking for an experienced Software Development Manager to lead our Enterprise Administration initiatives. We envision empowering Administrators to be the custodians of their QuickSight accounts, enabling them to ultimately fulfill the role of making their end users (Authors, Readers, etc.) productive. We provide simple and intuitive means to manage users and resources within the account while assisting with driving adoption, minimizing cost, maximizing value and adhering to security and compliance requirements. We achieve this through adopting tools and processes that are available for the AWS account (IAM, Billing/Metering, CloudTrail, etc.), customizing when AWS solutions aren’t enough, and innovating when there are gaps with AWS.

    As a manager in QuickSight, you will be responsible for wearing many hats and owning critical pieces of the product. You will help in defining the creative vision, product requirements, and user experience while also leading a software engineering team to drive the product from concept all the way into customer’s hands. A successful candidate should be highly autonomous and able to be an independent problem solver. If you can communicate clearly, have a passion for native cloud products and love to lead world class engineering teams – then come join us in making history and disrupting the BI industry!

    As a part of this role, you will:
    - Build and manage a team of Software Engineers.
    - Foster career growth and a strong team culture.
    - Recruit, hire, mentor, and coach technical staff.
    - Interface with our external customers to understand requirements, set priorities and communicate direction and progress.
    - Own all operational metrics and support for your team’s software.
    - Manage the agile development process and methodology to deliver value to customers.
    - Help develop long-term development and business technology strategies.

    • 3+ years experience managing software development teams
    • Experience leading highly-skilled software engineering teams
