The Organization
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of enterprise, government, and start-up businesses and organization in over 190 countries around the world.

The AWS New Regions Strategy and Planning (NRSP) Finance team works together with AWS New Regions business team to lead all aspects of AWS expansions in new regions. Setting up AWS’s physical presence in a new geography is a complex strategic and financial decision – it depends on a number of technical and local factors, and involves large capital outlays (~billions of dollars), and hence needs thorough and careful financial consideration.

The Position
You will join the NRSP Finance team within AWS Infrastructure Finance. In this role you will support both FP&A and region planning activities. You will assist Finance Managers in assessing end to end launch strategies and their financial impacts. You will work closely with a wide range of business leaders to develop and evaluate complex financial models, assess long term financial impacts of billions of dollars, and make recommendations. You will partner with stakeholders in World Wide Public Sector (WWPS), Data Center Planning and Delivery (DCPD), Data Center Operations (DCO), Human Resources, and Tax to prepare financial projections, sensitivities, and risks for business reviews to senior management. Once a region is approved and is being built, you will assist in the oversight and controllership to ensure the launch executes within plan.

Strategizing, analyzing, and launching new regions is a complex process, and you will have the opportunity to contribute via easing access to key data. The right individual will have strong communication skills and a drive to improve reporting and controls. This role is a great opportunity for professional growth into either FP&A or region ownership.

· Develop and maintain reporting dashboards that provide visibility to key business and financial metrics.
· Monitor and enhance existing controls for CapEx approvals and purchase requests.
· Create formal process documentation to support both FP&A and region planning scope.
