DESCRIPTION

Senior Program Manager, Frustration-Free Packaging Amazon Customer Packaging Experience (CPEX) Team:

As a customer-centric company that is committed to sustainability, we see it as part of our mission to optimize the overall customer experience. We do so by setting a high bar for the selection and use of our own outbound e-commerce packaging, We also collaborate with vendors and sellers worldwide to invent sustainable packaging that delights customers, eliminates waste, and ensures products arrive undamaged to our customers' doorsteps. Amazon drives outbound packaging waste reduction by using machine learning to select the least wasteful type of packaging for each product we ship. We have used this tool to reduce the weight of our outbound packaging by more than 33% over the past 5 years, eliminating over 1 million tons of packaging material. We share this knowledge with vendors and sellers through our Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP) Program, which encourages them to package their products in easy-to-open packaging that is 100% recyclable and, where safe to do so, ships without any additional Amazon packaging.

Responsibilities:

You will help expedite the FFP conversion process, manage a pipeline of vendor conversions projects carefully targeted in ship in vendors' (manufacturers') package, and increase the proportion of FFP shipments that won't require for Amazon overboxing.
