· Identify evangelism opportunities for the A&S Tech team to represent AWS's space vision to the world and drive strategic product communications
· Managing product life cycle(s) from strategic planning to tactical execution
· Launching the space product vision, strategy and roadmap and working with key AWS stakeholders to deliver on that vision and drive alignment and product strategies
· Defining product requirements documents based on an intimate knowledge of AWS space market segments, target customers, and products
· Responsible for go-to-market plans and sales enablement, working to ensure sales, Solution Architects, ProServe, and partner teams have what they need to be successful
· Collaborate with Sales, Solution Architects, and Service teams to build minimum viable products
· Establishing goals and reviewing metrics to identify opportunities and deliver success
· Research and identify new opportunities for AWS to innovate on behalf of our customers
