  • Job Description

    Amazon’s Global Corporate and Operations Communications (GCOC) team, which is part of Global Corporate Affairs (GCA), is seeking a Technical Program Manager to manage the full lifecycle of complex, cross-functional programs that help manage Amazon’s corporate reputation.

    This role will work broadly, managing larger initiatives that span organizations and geographies. You will own the delivery of large and complex projects, manage the roadmap for these projects, as well as the product roadmaps for Amazon’s company website and company blog. For each project or program, this role will be expected to contribute to OP1/OP2 narratives, be accountable for strategy and delivery, be able to define the program (mission, vision, tenets), set objectives, analyze data, drive improvements to metrics, and influence resource allocation.
    The ability to lead complex discussions that arrive at clear decisions is essential, as is the ability to translate technical opportunities and limitations to a non-technical audience.

    The Ideal Candidate:
    If you are someone who has passion for shipping products and building, we would love to hear from you. The ideal candidate has the courage of conviction. They are quick on their feet, take solid decisions, and are flexible to see various sides of a situation. You will have an opportunity to create and drive processes that will affect millions of customers and hundreds of thousands of Associates. It is important that you can earn trust of your peers, stakeholders, and executives through your body of work and consistency. Most importantly, you are able to lead without authority and get things done. This role has VP and Senior VP level visibility.

    Responsibilities:
    1. Work with key stakeholders in product management and executive teams to define strategy and requirements
    2. Create processes, mechanisms, and tools that shape the delivery of GCOC programs
    3. Manage budget and Fixed/Variable cost for the program
    4. Manage ambiguity and competing priorities while staying focused on short term and long-term goals
    5. Earn trust through regular communication with senior management on status, risks, and change control
    6. Define, measure, and report on metrics and success indicators. We make decisions based on data
    7. Be resourceful and find creative solutions to complex technical and organizational challenges

    Basic Qualifications

    - Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems, Computer Science or related field
    - 5+ years managing complex, cross-functional technology projects and large, distributed solutions
    - CSS, HMTL, and Javascript, as well as an understanding of AWS systems
    - Demonstrated experience with stakeholder management, project management, and leading through influence
    - Excellent problem-solving skills – you love problems that have no textbook solution
    - Ability to understand risks and opportunities and explain them to both technical and non-technical audiences.
    - Excellent written and verbal communication skills
