Job Description


Looking for a career at a company that seeks to be Earth’s most customer-centric company? If so, meet Amazon.

Over the past 20 years, Amazon has reinvented on behalf of the consumer and has become the largest internet retailer and marketplace in the world with over $74 billion in revenue globally. Through our entrepreneurial and innovative culture, Amazon has also developed new technologies and products (like our Kindle e-readers and tablets) and, enterprise services (like Amazon Web Services). Amazon is now reinventing on behalf of the business customer and focused on building the largest and most innovative Business-to-Business (B2B) marketplace in the world, and we are recruiting make this vision a reality.

B2B represents an incredible opportunity to address a vast new market segment and customer base and is an area of high interest for Amazon. We are focused on building solutions that enables the B2B customer to find, research, and buy products and services from a vast selection, across multiple devices, marketplaces and regions. Our customers include individual professionals, small businesses to large institutions (and everything in between). Our B2B customers have different needs than the traditional Amazon customer so we are reinventing everything from how we display our selection to how we provide the right customer experience.

The Role

Amazon’s consumer discovery experience has become the defacto way for consumers to discover for products to purchase. We are looking for a senior product manager with proven experiences in thought leadership, product management and analysis to build an unrivaled browse and search experience for B2B. The three core areas of focus for Discovery Product Manager are: 1) work backwards from customer problems sourced from Voice of Customer (VoC) channels and/or quantitative behavioral data from Amazon systems to identify and prioritize opportunities to improve product discovery for AB customers across all Marketplaces, 2) partner with teams internal and external to AB to create projects with timelines and priorities to be included in the overall discovery roadmap, and 3) lead the effort to build scalable mechanisms to generate top-level output metrics and to drill into key drivers contributing to changes.

The scope is global (e.g., business customers purchasing products from our international Amazon marketplaces). You will need to speak to a wide range of business customers (size, industry, geography, personas) to understand the various requirements related to the shopping experience (e.g., comparing, researching, and buying) and work backwards to document customer requirements.

Amazon is now focused on building the largest and most innovative Business-to-Business (B2B) marketplace in the world, and we are recruiting a handful of the best of the best to make this vision a reality. B2B represents an incredible opportunity to address a vast new market segment and customer base and is an area of high investment for Amazon. It is a primary driver for Amazon’s future growth. We are focused on building solutions to enable B2B customers to discover, research and buy products and services (including industrial items, office supplies, scientific products, and much more) from a vast selection, across multiple devices, marketplaces and regions. Our customers include individual professionals, small businesses to large institutions (and everything in between) that buy in either high frequency or in bulk quantities. Our B2B customers have different needs than the traditional Amazon customer and thus we have to reinvent everything from how we display our selection, price our products, and provide the right customer experience (i.e., fulfill and deliver bulk quantities, allow different ways to order and pay, provide pre and post purchase services, etc.).

It is now Day 1 in Amazon Business (AB). Our vision is for Amazon to be the preferred platform and supplier for all professional, business, and institutional customer in the world. To deliver on that vision we are looking for passionate individuals to help define our AB product strategy, own and drive product management of key products and features, and develop sales, marketing, and customer service strategies to acquire and support new customers.
