3+ months agoSeattle, WA


Do you want to directly impact how Amazon builds customer trust globally by consistently delivering the lowest prices possible? We are a single, centralized team that owns the systems and strategies impacting billions of price changes worldwide for the Amazon Retail business. The problems we are solving are uniquely exciting and impactful. Pricing continues to be one of the key pillars to Amazon's success. Not only do we have to constantly reinvent ourselves to propel the growth of the Amazon ecosystem, we have to anticipate changes in the external environment and gear up for the future before it happens on a global scale. We consider earning and maintaining the trust our customers place in the prices on Amazon to be our responsibility and we are looking for a seasoned Technical Program Manager to join us.

This specific role is focused on innovating in pricing for regional and cross-border programs. We will build large-scale systems to price millions of items without requiring human input to delight our customers. You will be able to separate out idealistic from practical and balance both to continue to move forward. You will excel at looking around corners, and anticipating where to build and when to test to fail fast. You must have the experience and capability to prepare documentation for senior executives. This is a challenging and highly visible position managing multiple projects and driving results across teams. You will be responsible for identifying stakeholders, working with leadership to develop a vision, executing projects and delivering on our goals. TPMs handle complex inter-team dependencies and bridge the gaps in technical management. You will need to work with professionals in many different domains including finance, engineering, engineering management, and operations.

Successful candidates will have a strong technical background, be detail-oriented, have excellent problem solving and communication abilities, and possess deep knowledge on product design and implementation details. Candidate's technical expertise and operational excellence will raise the bar and influence the team's decisions and drive robust solutions which have a great customer experience.
