Job Description

Amazon e-commerce, Amazon Web Services, Twitch, digital and physical media publishing… imagine being able to invent within this sandbox of Amazon assets to create awe-inspiring games for fans. This role entails full ownership of building and operating a game team, along with building large and vibrant communities of fans. The person in this role will lead a world class game team, taking risks on ideas that can set standards and radically evolve gameplay.

Amazon is all in on games. We believe the evolution that began with arcade communities a quarter at a time, growing to the live streams and eSports of today, will continue to a future in which fans are creators, players are celebrities, and games are a global cultural touchstone that cut across age, gender and nationality. If you share our vision that games will produce some of the future’s most influential voices in media and art, come join us.

The right person for this role will already have demonstrated experience in building wildly inventive and successful games. You will have led entire game teams for an ambitious product. You will have a strong opinion of where the games industry is going – globally and across platforms. You will have incredible product passion, an exceptional track record for building games that garner communities of millions, and the desire to take risks and build something enormous.

Responsibilities:
· We can say it a lot of ways, but you are the single point of accountability for delivering an ambitious game, the buck stops here.
. You will be working across all product teams comprising all crafts and disciplines to deliver an objectively measurable business outcome.
. You will define and drive the full production and release lifecycle for the game.
. You will lead across divisional boundaries to achieve division business goals.
· You will build and launch an awesome game that is fun to play, set standards, is fun to watch, garners large communities of fans, and generate significant free cash flow.

Basic Qualifications

· You have to have done it before. This means you have led at least one large full game production from start to finish where you were the single point of accountability.
· Experience in building and leading large teams: including identifying hiring world class talent; helping people grow in their careers; and leading them to deliver amazing results for customers.
· Comfortable with managing a full P&L.
· Very strong written and verbal communication skills.

Preferred Qualifications

· You have to have done it many times before. This means multiple years in the games industry as a product leader.
· Well refined philosophies and practices around building and leading large organizations: including hiring world class talent; helping people grow rapidly in their careers; and leading them to deliver amazing results for customers.
· Deep understanding for business disciplines, such as creating and managing a full P&L, and directly negotiating strategic business relationships.
· Impeccable written and verbal communication skills.
