DCEO(Data Center Engineering Operations) Cluster Manager

Tenure : 6 years
After obtaining a bachelor's degree from a university in Hawaii, USA, I worked for a Japanese IT company for about four years managing facility operations at data centers in Japan. I then moved to a global environment to take advantage of my strengths as a bilingual engineer. I worked and contributed to the growth of the data center business for about nine years in various ways, including overseas sales technical support and project management for the creation of new data centers.

I joined Amazon Data Services Japan as a facility engineer. After working as a team leader and Facility Manager, I was given the opportunity to work as a manger for the facility engineering operations team, which is my current role. Every day, we in the facilities engineering team plan and implement various tasks and initiatives to enable the facility infrastructure of the data center, which supports services for customers who use AWS cloud services, to continue operations 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

About six and a half years ago, when I was searching for a new job, I was advancing through the selection process with multiple companies, but I decided to join Amazon for the following two reasons: The first reason is that the data center team was just getting started at the time, the team was small, and I thought the possibilities would be endless as the business developed. I imagined that I would be able to grow together with the company through many opportunities and challenges. The second reason is that the 14 leadership principles that form Amazon’s unique culture are similar to my own values, and I felt strongly connected to the company's culture. As I look back on the past six years and three months and reflect on my own growth, which I would not have experienced at other companies, I can confidently say I made the right choice in joining AWS.

I hope to continue to devote myself to Amazon’s customer-obsessed, principled, and data-driven approach to business to create value in a larger capacity than ever before and contribute to our customers and the company.

AWS cloud computing services will continue to accelerate and grow with customers. My team of facility engineers designs, builds, tests, and operates the infrastructure that supports AWS cloud computing, and appropriately manages the life cycle of the facility. At Amazon, we believe that all employees are leaders. It is an environment full of challenges and various opportunities for you to demonstrate your leadership. We look forward to your application.
