Job Description

How can Amazon improve education and scale innovation for millions of learners around the world? If you would like to join the product team creating the answer to that question, we would love to talk.

The Higher Education team is seeking an entrepreneurial, results-oriented Product Director to lead a team of product managers focused on crafting the learning experience at Kindle. In this role you will define, develop and drive the business and product roadmap for Amazon’s eTextbook, Online Courses, and Digital learning product offerings to higher education and professional students in the US and international markets.

At Amazon Education our ambition is to help students achieve their learning goals by connecting them with effective, affordable learning content and experiences. To achieve this, we are building a talented team that strives to bring bold ideas for applications, devices and marketplace services to life. In your role you will be working with your colleagues to challenge the status quo and open access to new learning opportunities for customers.

You will be the right Senior Product Manager for eTextbooks if you are:

- Customer focused – you are a strong voice on the team and in daily decisions for making the right trade-offs on behalf of the customer. You prioritize diving deep on customer data and feedback.
- Results oriented – you rally your team to meet their commitments to each other and to customers. Seeing your teams’ solutions ship, scale and make a measurable impact on customers’ lives fuels you.
- Fearless – You are drawn to take on the hardest problems, navigate ambiguity and are willing to fail in the name of learning what works best over the long term.
