About Werner Vogels

I am an engineer, architect, scientist, programmer, troublemaker, executive, revisionist, investor, mentor, advisor, analyst, academic, sales guy, entrepreneur, data analyst, system administrator, product owner, evangelist, debater, father, musician and biker. And I probably forgot a few.

I like building things that need to get big. Whether that is technology or a business, I am interested how to scale them.

I believe in democratising business creation, simplifying operation and driving innovation by providing a low cost, scalable and reliable infrastructure that can be acquired on-demand with a pay-as-you-go pricing model, and that is available to everyone. I am proud to be involved with Amazon Web Services and that we have been able to help young businesses around the globe get off the ground and that we are helping large enterprises break free from the lock-in of traditional enterprise hardware and software vendors.

I don't deal well with bullshit and incompetence.
