Are you excited about building technology that works seamlessly with and around people? The Pack Automation team at Amazon is building high-
performance automation systems and deploying them rapidly at Amazon scale.
To this end, we are seeking a Technical Program Manager. The candidate will work with the FC and engineering teams in coming up with technical solutions as well as aligning cross-
functionally both in terms of guiding the design / development within our group and getting the work prioritized across multiple teams / stakeholders.
You will thrive in a highly collaborative, creative, analytical, and fast-paced environment in solving problems in connecting the suppliers to the customers optimally.
In this role you will be responsible for scoping and delivering large projects across the Fulfillment Organization. Responsibilities include collection of business and systems requirements from internal and external customers, writing specifications, driving project schedules from design to release, and managing the production launch.
You will lead and coordinate design / implementation efforts between internal teams and outside merchants and vendors to develop optimal solutions.
You will be expected to make appropriate tradeoffs to optimize time-to-market, clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes to internal cross-
functional and remote project teams
The right candidate will possess a strong program management background, will have demonstrated experience leading large projects, and will have a well-
rounded technical background in software and hardware systems. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities.
This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done.
As a TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints.
An ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected.
Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role.
