Job Description

Interested in devices such as Amazon’s Fire Tablets and Fire TV?
We are the team that manages the app catalog for Amazon’s Fire Tablets and Fire TVs. If you are excited by technology and working in a fast-paced challenging environment drives you, we would love to have you as part of the Amazon team in downtown Seattle. This team drives the ingestion and certification process for every android app in our store. This involves managing the entire app life cycle - from the moment a developer submits to the time it’s live and consumed by the public – to ensure a high-quality experience for Fire Tablet and Fire TV users. Bonus points if you’re one of them!
We are seeking an energetic, detail-oriented, Content Security Lead/Program Lead to perform digital content evaluation on apps consumed on Amazon’s Fire Tablets and Fire TV.

This will include record creation, downloading, installing, and testing of digital content to ensure it meets Amazon’s high quality bar. In addition to app security you will also focus on fraud detection and identification of bad actors. You’ll work closely with fraud prevention teams and external security vendors to build profiles and use machine learning techniques to catch fraudulent vendors. You will also partner with program and product management teams to propose improvement opportunities, brainstorm solutions, and drive resolution. Above all, you will play a vital role in helping us meet our app selection expansion goals while protecting our high-quality customer experience. The right person for this role will have solid experience delivering successful projects, and managing deadlines and risks across multiple global teams. She/he will be able to effectively communicate, both orally and in written form, to stakeholders and cross-functional team members to deliver scalable programs and launch cool new devices and features to global customers.
Our environment is very fast-paced and requires someone who is flexible, energetic, a "doer", biased for action, very detail-oriented; one who holds high personal standards and is comfortable tracking many threads across many teams.
