Job Description

DESCRIPTION

AWS Infrastructure Services owns the design, planning, delivery, and operation of all AWS global infrastructure. In other words, we’re the people who keep the cloud running. We support all AWS data centers and all of the servers, storage, networking, power, and cooling equipment that ensure our customers have continual access to the innovation they rely on. We work on the most challenging problems, with thousands of variables impacting the supply chain — and we’re looking for talented people who want to help. You’ll join a diverse team of software, hardware, and network engineers, supply chain specialists, security experts, operations managers, and other vital roles. You’ll collaborate with people across AWS to help us deliver the highest standards for safety and security while providing seemingly infinite capacity at the lowest possible cost for our customers. And you’ll experience an inclusive culture that welcomes bold ideas and empowers you to own them to completion.

The AWS Data Center Global Services team is looking for an exceptional individual to contribute to the Controls & Technology organization by joining the Controls Design Engineering team (CDE). The CDE primary responsibility is to track, document, communicate and enhance global data center design standards with a focus on control, automation and electrical power monitoring systems.

At Amazon, we're working to be the most customer-centric company on earth. To get there, we need talented, bright, and driven people. This is your chance to make history by joining a company whose potential has no limits.


The ideal candidate will need a wide-ranging background in data center environmental controls systems, IT infrastructure, networking, mechanical facility operations, electrical power monitoring, project management and strong leadership skills.


If you are passionate about the Customer Experience, think and act with a global perspective and have the ability to contribute to sophisticated innovations in the area of building controls and automation initiatives, this is the challenge you are looking for!


Controls Design Engineering (CDE)

The CDE team provides Building Management System (BMS) and Electrical Power Monitoring System (EPMS) design coordination globally.

The team’s goal is to deliver consistent standards for data center controls systems, as well as overall mechanical and electrical design practices. Due to the critical nature and complexity of designing, installing, and maintaining a BMS/EPMS, the CDE team is the primary owner of the associated specification, points list, Basis of Design and scope documents within a large infrastructure engineering team.


The CDE team is a single point of contact for multiple internal and external customers, uniting the efforts associated with:
- New construction builds
- Legacy site enhancement projects
- Data center service projects

In a continual effort to enhance the controls systems, the CDE team collaborates through design review, drives consistent standards, and collects feedback data to arrive at unified documented solutions. Due to the efforts of maintaining, updating, and distributing BMS/EPMS standards, the CDE engineer will drive significant reductions in change order expense, scope gaps between contractors, construction schedule delays, single-sourced vendor pricing, and reduced vendor project management and engineering labor costs.




Role Responsibilities and Requirements
- Have deep knowledge of building operations, mechanical plant strategies, BMS programming concepts, control diagrams, industrial HVAC, electrical line-ups, one line diagrams, and complex environmental and electrical concepts.
- Data center redundancy, mechanical failure strategies, energy and water conservation best-case practices and data reporting analytics.
- Knowledge of how to successfully operate in high security critical environments while maximizing productivity.
- Innovation of new solutions to support initiatives, team, and company goals.
- Lead and facilitate collaboration with multiple teams including construction, programmers, MEP/ACS engineers, and team managers as necessary to accomplish initiative goals.


- Create, maintain, and disseminate specification documents that pertain to global projects.
- Create, maintain, and disseminate project specific scope of work (SOW) documents including global design standards. Personally coordinate with each regional project manager to review and finalize each projects SOW.
- Vendor selection, bid review, RFI support and coordination.
- Central point of contact for multiple internal and external groups regarding BMS controls standards. Manage and prioritize requests for information on new construction builds, existing site facilities support and legacy site enhancement projects.
- Interaction with AWS cloud services and other applications in order to present, archive and analyze accumulated data.
- Expect to travel globally when needed to manage and/or support project initiatives.
- Anticipate roadblocks and risks while providing escalation management.

Key job responsibilities
The CDE primary responsibility is to track, document, communicate and enhance global data center design standards with a focus on control, automation and electrical power monitoring systems.

This position is specifically for Building Management Systems (BMS) control engineers. A solid background in BMS control systems is necessary. Our day to day is reviewing MEP design drawings, providing scopes of work for BMS integrators, answering RFIs from vendors, and providing trouble shooting support when necessary.

Our work is focused on the design of data centers, but we do support other teams during the construction phase. Travel to site may be necessary from time to time to help resolve BMS related issues. Beyond constructions projects, our team supports onboarding different vendors of AHUs, EF, control panels, ect. For new or updating mechanical equipment our team reviews and approves vendor submittals and attends factory witness testing.

The team’s goal is to deliver consistent standards for data center controls systems, as well as overall mechanical and electrical design practices. Due to the critical nature and complexity of designing, installing, and maintaining a BMS/EPMS, the CDE team is the primary owner of the associated specification, points list, Basis of Design and scope documents within a large infrastructure engineering team.
