Job Description


Learn how “the cloud” works and how we provide our customers with the capacity they need as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Decommission Trainee. In Amazon’s mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, the Decommission team removes and sanitizes any obsolete equipment to support the evolution of our highly reliable, scalable, low-cost physical infrastructure that powers businesses and individuals all around the world, connecting our customers to their customers.

*About You*
At Amazon, everyone is a leader. You are self-motivated and can adapt in a fast-paced environment that is constantly evolving. You seek to understand how things work and are a problem solver. We have guidelines and processes to follow, and the work requires attention to detail and a desire to find answers. Where there are no answers, you see opportunities to find solutions and make improvements to our processes. If you enjoy working alongside a close-knit and diverse team of leaders, this is the place to be!

*About The Role*
The Decommission Team is a part of the Infrastructure Operations Team, the backbone of AWS that supports our rapidly growing AWS business and customers. As AWS grows, we strive to grow our own talent.

Your “Day One” starts with a 6-month contract, working from Monday to Friday, 9:00 to 18:00, in our data centers. During this period, you have the opportunity to gain an understanding of data centers through hands-on decommission of server racks and other infrastructure equipment. You will understand how to handle and dispose legacy equipment while keeping customer data secure. You will work with your colleagues and other teams that support this infrastructure and the customers that rely on it.

As you receive on-the-job training, gain cross-functional, transferable skills, and establish yourself as a knowledgeable, efficient technician, your contract can be extended or become a full-time role. You will find opportunities to expand within the team and the organization. Just as technology is constantly advancing, AWS continually evolves and encourages all Amazonians to exceed the expectations of our customers.
