Technical Program Manager - Sidewalk

1 week agoCambridge, United Kingdom


Amazon Sidewalk is a new long-term effort to greatly extend the working range of low-bandwidth, low-power, smart lights, sensors, and other low-cost devices customers install at the edge of their home network. We believe customers shouldn't have to settle for connected devices that lose functionality past the front door. With Amazon Sidewalk, customers will be able to place smart devices anywhere on their property and know the devices will work, even in dead spots where Wi-Fi and Bluetooth don't reach, helping bridge the connectivity gaps around our homes!

Amazon Sidewalk is looking for a Technical Program Manager with in-depth wireless or embedded systems experience to help our multi-site device software development teams deliver highly cross-functional features to build the platforms that power our network. You will work closely with our global teams to plan and coordinate the execution of complex business needs, while simultaneously keeping your team focused on meeting their own commitments. You will engage with an experienced cross-disciplinary staff to conceive of and help design components and building blocks to ensure secure software features for new products as well as maintain existing platforms. You will work closely with silicon vendors to build engineering relationships to assist in the install, activate, and support of Amazon Sidewalk devices. Technical Program Managers at Amazon Sidewalk must be capable of sorting through many competing priorities, defining processes that improve execution, championing Engineering best practices, executing with agility, and succeeding in a complex and fast paced environment. You will get the opportunity to have true ownership and effect real change to Amazon Sidewalk as it grows, dive deep to understand the underlying technologies influence technical architecture/design decisions. If that challenge excites you, then we'd like to talk to you.
