  • Job Description

    Are you excited by Amazon's foray in the voice segment with Alexa-powered devices like the Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show? Come work on it. We’re building the speech and language solutions behind Amazon Alexa and delivering a platform for third party developers to build great voice first experiences! We’re working hard, having fun, and making history!

    We are a technology and operations team that owns certification for all Alexa skills, striving to provide the best end-to-end certification experience for 3P developers. The suite of technology products we own include platforms for ingestion and publishing skills, tools for managing certification ops workflows, data capture and developer communication, automated testing frameworks and tools for live catalog health monitoring.

    We are seeking an energetic and go-getter Senior TPM to live and breathe one or more programs on the New Initiatives team. This team ensures that the certification team (tech and ops) scales and is ready to support all new initiatives for Alexa and Skills (that are growing at a breakneck speed!)

    The right person for this role will have solid experience delivering successful projects, managing deadlines and risks across multiple teams, communicating effectively to stakeholders and closely with the cross-functional teams. Our environment is very fast-paced and requires someone who is flexible, energetic, a doer, biased for action, detail oriented, and comfortable tracking many threads across many teams. We need someone who thrives in ambiguity and loves to take on the challenge of working with a verse diverse set of stakeholders and solving business problems. Someone who has the judgment and intuition and can think of all the right questions and when to ask them.

    • Experience in driving global programs while working with remote teams
