DESCRIPTION

The Amazon EC2 Pricing and Elasticity org is looking for a Principal Product Manager to lead a new effort developing compute products for the Financial Services Sector. We are looking for a team member to understand how Financial Service customers in different geographies, deploy manage and pay for their current infrastructure and what new EC2 products and features we should build to fit the unique needs of our global Financial Services customer base.

Given the breadth of the EC2 service this role will require coordination across many internal and external teams and will be visible at the highest levels of the company. You'll work with our customers, partners, software vendors, and operational stakeholders to prioritize roadmap features, and spearhead the definition of new capabilities through expertly crafted business requirements documents.

Every day will bring new and exciting challenges on the job while you:

• Define high-quality roadmaps based on your strategy and vision

• Work closely with sales teams, solution architects, business development and engineering teams to solve complex product and pricing issues
• Manage prioritization and trade-offs between customer experience, performance and operational support load
• Can dive into technical details and ask engineers insightful questions about the services and dependencies you influence

Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.
