  • Job Description

    Interested in Amazon Echo? Come work on it. We’re building the speech and language solutions behind Amazon Echo and other Amazon products and services. We’re working hard, having fun, and making history!

    As a Program Leader you will help define and build digital products and applications for Echo and Alexa, the cloud service that powers it. You will also manage the engineering and quality assurance teams. You will participate in developing the strategy and vision for the group, and you will develop and look after product roadmaps and features based on team strategy and vision. This role is inherently cross-functional -- you will work closely with other product managers, engineering, design, operations, finance and executive teams to bring features and products to market and develop and grow business opportunities for Amazon.com. A successful candidate will be highly analytical, able to work extremely effectively in a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of technologies and capabilities into high quality, simple products and applications that customers love.

    Key Responsibilities:
    · Lead the definition, design and construction of products that delight consumers and compel them to engage despite an abundance of alternatives and distractions
    · Lead the development of the product strategy and vision supported by internal and external analysis
    · Create buy-in for the product vision both internally and with key external partners
    · Work closely and collaboratively with design and product teams from partner organizations
    · Drive dialogue with engineering teams and program management from multiple products to deliver integrated services
    · Define creative, high quality, simple product roadmaps based on team strategy and vision
    · Develop detailed, crisp business requirements and user stories that can be used to create product specifications and architecture for each product and application
    · Manage prioritization and trade-offs among customer experience, performance, and operational support load
    Proactively identify and resolve strategic issues that may impair the team’s ability to meet strategic, financial, and technical goals

    Basic Qualifications

    • 10+ years of professional experience with 5+ years of consumer facing software product management experience
    • Experience developing rich device-driven experiences and cloud service integrations

    • Passion for transformative user experiences – familiarity with speech / natural-language applications a plus
    • Experience delivering consumer software products and services in a high growth environment
    • Programmatic understanding of cloud services and device integration
    • Proven track record of taking ownership and successfully delivering results in a fast-paced, dynamic environment
    • Strong verbal and written communication skills with demonstrated experience engaging and influencing senior executives
