As a product management leader, you will be part of the larger technical community at Amazon. This community forms the backbone of the company, plays a critical role in the broad business planning, working closely with senior leaders to develop business targets and resource requirements, influences our long-term technical and business strategy, helps us hire talented team of engineers and ultimately enables us to deliver innovative and operationally sound solutions rapidly.
We are looking for an experienced principal product manager to help us grow and operate this new business. In this role you will be responsible for thinking big, setting direction and priorities, driving definitions, delivering results, growing customer adoption, and ensuring we exceed all customer expectations.
This position within the AWS Backup team represents a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor within a fast growing business and help shape the technology, product, and business. A successful candidate will bring deep technical and software expertise, strong business acumen and judgment, the ability to define visionary ground breaking products, the ability to hire and grow team members, the desire to have an industry wide impact, and the ability to work within a fast moving, startup environment in a large company to rapidly deliver services that have a broad business impact.
Mentorship and Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our PMT and other Backup members truly enjoy mentoring and on-boarding new PMT members through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, doc reviews.
We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded PMT and enable them to take on more complex features and services in the future.
Our team is focused on balancing life with work, and does this via work autonomy and by prioritizing solutions and processes that enable us to scale faster than the business. Most days, our entire team is co-located in our Seattle, Boston and Vancouver offices, but we're flexible when people need to work from home.
