Amazon Employment – Technical Lab Developer

Website Amazon

Job Description:

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Training and Certification team is looking for developers, technical trainers, technical instructional designers, or solutions architects who want to help build exciting new AWS courses as a Technical Lab Developer.

Customers are rapidly adopting AWS as a way to build scalable, cost-effective web and IT solutions for their businesses. To do that effectively, they need training—and not just a couple of PowerPoint slides and a long lecture. AWS is developing highly technical instructor-led training courses with extensive hands-on labs, e-learning courses that can be accessed 24×7, and self-paced labs that take customers deep into AWS technologies. You’ll get to teach and play at the same time!


Job Responsibilities:

  • Build relationships with AWS service teams to understand product roadmaps and plan for content updates or new training offerings.
  • Coordinate with the Curriculum Engineering team to ensure that hands-on labs are built for scalability and long-term support.
  • Utilize an automated lab and courseware publishing process to manage and deploy content.
  • Provide a technical review of all materials being produced by the Curriculum Development team, including Instructor Guide, Student Guide, Lab Guide, and written presentation materials.
  • You get to play! Dive deep into AWS technologies, such as Big Data, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Cloud Applications, Security, or other solutions areas to understand the services and develop effective training for our customers.
  • Design and develop a cohesive set of real-world, scenario-based labs to reinforce the learning objectives for AWS courseware by offering hands-on learning for students.
  • Collaborate with AWS service teams to identify changes in offerings that would affect training materials, and act as the primary interface between Curriculum
  • Development and the service teams.
  • Participate in Audience Analysis and Course Design sessions to identify training needs, and collaborate with subject matter experts (SMEs) across AWS—including
  • Curriculum Developers, Technical Trainers, Support Engineers, Professional Services, and Solutions Architects—to build technically accurate training that meets the learning objectives.
  • Act in concert with the Lab QA Engineer to provide support for the deployed hands-on labs.
  • Determine services and features to be included in each course based on intended audience profile, learning objectives, AWS best practices, and strategic initiatives.

Job Requirements:

  • Demonstrated ability to assess training effectiveness and ROI to stakeholders and leaders.
  • Proven experience collaborating with global stakeholders, SMEs, frontline managers, and frontline employees.
  • 5+ yrs. domain expertise in one or more of the following: data analytics, machine learning, or general cloud technology.
  • 2+ years prior experience designing, deploying, and operating internet-scale applications.
  • Technical degree (e.g. Computer Science) or 4 years’ relevant work experience required.
  • The ability to edit content for the purpose of knowledge transfer and skill development; this includes skill in collaborating with SMEs and managers to help write and develop technical labs/content.
  • Relevant experience in a curriculum development and/or lab development role.
  • Ability to apply adult learning principles and incorporate them into curriculum design and development.
