Job Description

Amazon Go is a new kind of physical store with no lines and no checkout—you just grab and go! Customers simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take what they want from our selection of fresh, delicious meals and grocery essentials, and go! Learn more at amazon.com/go.
The Team: Everyone on the team needs to be entrepreneurial, wear many hats and work in a fast-paced, ambiguous, and highly-collaborative environment that’s more startup than big company. We are looking for people who want to join an ambitious team whose goal it is to improve the daily lives of customers. If this sounds intriguing, then we’d like to talk to you about a role on the Amazon Go team.

The Role: We have an experience that customers love and are looking for people that can help us solve hard problems, innovate across many dimensions, and challenge the status quo. As a Sr. Program Manager on the Amazon Go team, you will use a combination of outstanding cross-functional thinking, business judgment, and strategic thinking to innovate on behalf of customers.

We’re looking for people with demonstrated program management experience. You will be asked to help develop, execute, and deliver on detailed plans, working closely with design, operations, supply chain, finance, and a wide range of engineering and research teams. You will drive multiple projects simultaneously, defining timelines and communicating on status, risks, and process changes. You will need to thrive and deliver results in an ambiguous, fast-paced, dynamic business environment, operating in all levels of the organization. You should be comfortable with a degree of ambiguity and pace that’s higher than most projects and relish the idea of solving hard problems.

Basic Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree.
  • 3+ years’ experience leading program management in a retail, technical, logistics, distribution, or manufacturing environment.
  • Strong data analysis, problem-solving, and project management skills. Strong analytical and quantitative skills with the ability to use data and metrics to back up assumptions, recommendations, and drive actions.
  • Demonstrated customer focus and experience bringing products or programs to market.
  • History of collaboration and willingness to roll up one's sleeves to get the job done (no job is too large, no job is too small).
  • High attention to detail including precise and effective communications and proven ability to manage multiple, competing priorities simultaneously.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage tradeoffs and evaluate opportunistic new ideas with a practical, common sense approach.
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment where continuous innovation is desired.
  • High sense of ownership, urgency, and drive.

Preferred Qualifications

  • MBA or Master’s Degree in Engineering or related field.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with demonstrated experience engaging and influencing senior executives.
  • Able to prioritize complex deliverables, have highly technical discussions, and run large meetings with technical and business leaders.
