Job Description

The Commerce Platform is seeking an executive-level Program Manager to lead a new initiative based in our Seattle, Washington headquarters.

Are you interested in leading complex, cross-organizational projects that build the very core of the industry leading cloud platform? AWS is the world’s largest public cloud and redefines the fundamental economics of large scale computing. The commerce platform is responsible for billing and payments for AWS worldwide.

Achieving success will require coordination across many AWS teams, with impact and visibility at the highest levels of the company. You’ll need to make prioritization calls across the portfolio that require both keen business and technical judgment, and will also drive process and execution goals.

The successful candidate must have exceptional problem solving skills, strong business judgment, and demonstrated experience leading cross-functional teams. We are looking for a proven ability to execute both strategically and tactically, and someone who is excited to take on new, ambiguous projects. This position requires a solid technical background, and the candidate should be customer-focused with a passion for the cloud.

  • Superior verbal and written communications skills with high attention to detail including precise and effective customer communications.
  • Analytical acumen, and comfort generating and evaluating various forecasts, metrics, and analyses
  • Ability to work autonomously in a highly demanding and often ambiguous environment, with attention to detail and organizational skills

  • Experience creating Software Development Kits (SDKs) and Developer Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)
  • Experience with platforms and development tools
  • Proven ability to manage multiple, competing priorities simultaneously and ability to work in a fast-paced environment where continuous innovation is desired
