Job description

DESCRIPTION

At Amazon, we believe that every day is “Day One.” A day to take the first step. A day to meet new challenges. Today could be the day that you become part of a bigger idea. A day where your own ideas can turn into reality. Become part of a company that redefines itself on a daily basis. Working for Amazon is a new excitement every day.

Does the challenge and ownership that comes from leading and driving large, cross-organizational projects and initiatives for one of the largest online marketplaces excite you? Do you enjoy working in an entrepreneurial environment solving complex technical problems and delivering innovative solutions? Are you an energetic, focused, and skilled Technical Program Manager (TPM) that has a track record of driving large scale projects while advocating customer experience? If so then Amazon's Global IT team is looking for you.

In this role you will work closely with stakeholders, engineers, and product teams to deliver enhancements to Amazonians globally. You will collaborate with product teams to deliver the best product with most efficient use of resources and technologies. You will work with all the stakeholders to identify appropriate resources needed, and develop schedules to ensure timely completion of projects by meeting project milestones. You will also assess risks, anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, make tradeoffs, balance the business needs versus technical constraints and encourage risk taking behavior to maximize business benefit.

Amazon is not an average retailer and this is definitely not your average job. We'll give you the opportunity to really make a difference to our business. We're looking for an exceptional professional with outstanding technical skills who has what it takes to make us the place for people to come to find anything they might want to buy online, with the opportunity to fulfil the Amazon motto to “Work Hard. Have Fun. Make History.”

Amazon is an Equal Opportunity-Affirmative Action Employer – Minority / Female / Disability / Veteran / Gender Identity / Sexual Orientation.
