Amazon Sr. TPM AWS, Annapurna Labs AI Chips GTM in Seattle, Washington


Do you want to help define the future of AWS AI Chips (AWS Inferentia/Trainium) Go to Market (GTM)? You will be part of the core worldwide AWS AI Chips Business and GTM team, driving our most strategic customer and industry partnership engagement programs. Our customers build and deploy GenAI applications on our Chips across many industry segments. You will collaborate with Neuron engineering, Business and product leaders to ensure we meet and exceed our customer expectations. This work includes managing relationship with leading ML frameworks and library providers, and working with cross teams in AWS to accelerate customer adoption of AWS Inferentia and Trainium based instances.

At Annapurna, our TPM role is focused on working amongst multiple teams to deliver functionality that those teams are responsible for. The TPM is the “glue” that holds teams together and maintains a bird’s eye view over what those teams are delivering and how those deliverables fit together. This involves two aspects, both equally important: The “Technical” part of “TPM” requires identifying dependencies and technical risks that affect the various teams represented. The “Program Manager” part of “TPM” involves scheduling, creating milestones, and reporting status.

As part of your project and program ownership, you focus on the larger business and technology picture (i.e., customer experience, processes, opportunities, and/or problems to be solved). You deeply understand the business and technical requirements of the solutions being built and drive the right outcomes. You take the time to understand the needs of engineers (who have to build what, maintain, and extend features for the life of the project). You help your customers and the engineering teams make appropriate trade-offs by considering the larger picture (e.g., business goals, user experience, dependency impacts, efficiency, availability). You partner with technical managers to secure resources, scope technical efforts, set project priorities, milestones, and drive delivery. You determine if success metrics are in place, and if not work to define them.

As part of this role, you will work directly with external technology providers, customers, and partners. To be successful, you have a solid understanding of the design approaches and industry technologies utilized. You make connections (to people and/or technologies) and make sure the right people are part of the conversation. For example, you are able to recognize when a proposed design is too complex or risky (and arrange additional reviews by senior engineers). You will need to be adept at interacting, communicating, and partnering with teams within AWS (product, solutions architecture, sales, marketing, and professional services) and externally with customers and 3rd party model providers.
