Job Description

Are you a hands-on technical leader who can make a huge impact on a dynamic, fast moving business? Are you equally comfortable digging into technical details as you are in drilling into product requirements? Does the idea of building a world class live streaming service from ground-up, at Amazon scale, excite you?

This role requires working closely with business and development teams within Amazon Video and across the organization.

You will lead high visibility and high impact programs collaborating with teams various across Amazon including regular communication with senior leadership on status, risks and product strategy within Amazon Video and across Amazon.

The ideal candidate has thrived and succeeded in delivering broadly adopted technology products or services in a very high growth environment. You are a strong leader who can prioritize well, communicate clearly and compellingly, and understand how to drive a high level of focus and excellence. You have a keen business sense but have also developed a deep understanding of technology.
Qualified candidates have experience defining projects and features, collecting requirements, writing detailed functional specifications, leading large cross functional and cross organizational programs, and successfully delivering complex programs with accurate results at high scale.
