DESCRIPTION

Amazon Prime Video Search understands queries, balances between relevance and popularity, and delivers results, so our customers can work less and watch more.

Key job responsibilities
  • Help define the mission, vision, and tenets of the PV Search team

  • Lead weekly launch readiness meetings with stakeholder teams
  • Relentlessly simplify and demonstrate significant innovation, creativity, and good judgment when solving challenging problems
  • Drive best practices on the team, deal with ambiguity and competing objectives, and proactively identify and mitigate risks before they become roadblocks
  • Write effective narratives and present them concisely and effectively to Directors and VPs
  • Help teams reduce exposure to classic failure modes (e.g., requirements not sufficiently understood/documented, ineffective cross-team collaboration, long-term impact(s) from of the use of third-party technologies, APIs not protected/hardened, insufficient testing/gaps in QA)
A day in the life

Bring your strong leadership background and track record of leading complex projects across multiple teams as well as your well-rounded technical knowledge in software. If you thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and aren't hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities, this is a great team for you.

As a Sr Manager of PM-Ts, 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.

About The Team

We are undaunted by the enormous mission of helping customers find their way through Prime Video's catalog. We are data-driven and scientific in our approach to understanding queries and orchestrating results. We are customer obsessed and customers ourselves. We are diverse and inclusive just like our titles, markets and customers. We welcome fresh ideas and perspectives and openly challenge the status quo.
