Job Description

Want to work at the cutting edge of big data and analytics? Interesting in helping customers leverage the power of Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, and other open-source distributed big data technologies? Come join us on the Amazon EMR team!

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for a seasoned product manager to help us define innovative new features and address new opportunities for open-source big data applications, data science, and analytics. Amazon EMR is a massively scalable service that allows customers to process vast amounts of data with open-source distributed applications in the Apache Hadoop and Spark ecosystem. As a Senior Product Manager on EMR, you’ll work with an excellent development team building one of the largest Apache Hadoop platforms in the world.

In this role, you will have ownership over key initiatives in Amazon EMR’s long-term product vision, feature definition, pricing, sales enablement, and marketing. You should be customer obsessed and enjoy engaging with and helping all types of customers ranging from executives and Fortune 100 companies to developers at early-stage startups. You should also be comfortable working in a fast-paced, rapidly evolving environment with fast delivery time, rapid iteration, and data-driven decision-making. The right candidate will bring a good mix of experience with big data technologies, product management skill set, and a roll-up-your-sleeves, entrepreneurial approach.

We are looking for a candidate that is obsessed with delivering the most customer-centric experience on the planet, showing proven success in ownership, bias for action, and thinking big. This leader will need to exhibit excellent judgment, prioritizing between existing versus new customers and between features, architectural improvements, and operational excellence. We are looking for strong business owners who are comfortable sharing their vision with AWS senior leadership, but also working closely with engineering teams to dive deep into details to make ideas into reality.

We need a passionate product management leader who dives deep and has shown demonstrated success in building strong business cases, managing high-growth, successful product launches, and driving customer success.
