Amazon aims to exceed the expectations of our customers by ensuring that their orders, no matter how large or small, are delivered as quickly, accurately, and cost effectively as possible. To meet this goal, Amazon has invested in Amazon Logistics, a world class last mile operation.

We are looking for a program manager who has experience working through ambiguity, leading complex initiatives, and working across teams to investigate and identify opportunities to improve background checks, driver vetting and increase end customer safety. From Day 1, this program manager is given ownership of large programs; the autonomy to think strategically and make data driven decisions; and the ability to drive significant impact to the customer experience.

This Program Manager will be key in improving onboarding and background check processes and services. You will define requirements, coordinate across dependent teams, help build reporting mechanisms, manage stakeholders and vendors, establish new processes, work with cross-functional partners to communicate issues and progress, and verify that customer-focused background check and onboarding solutions are implemented. This role requires working closely with teams across the Last Mile org., HR, external vendors, and support teams to carry out the mission of the team.

• Negotiate and identify opportunities for cost improvement.
• Manage multiple complex cross-team projects and investigations end-to-end.
• Enable effective investigations and business team escalations in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
• Operate and thrive with partial information and ambiguity and create structure for the space you own.


• Bachelor's degree with a technical discipline
• 5+ years of program management experience
• 5+ years of consumer facing software management experience
• 2+ years experience leading cross-functional teams to deliver programs and projects on tight deadlines, with dependencies on operations, technology, and business teams.
