Technical Program Manager, Search Platform in Seattle, Washington

Hundreds of millions of customers. Billions of queries per year and dollars in revenue. The scale and impact of Amazon Search is HUGE and is built on a sophisticated platform that enables internal partners to deliver relevant content to our customers. We're looking for a smart and creative Technical Program Manager (TPM) to help deliver the next generation of that platform.

To succeed in this role, you will have to actively work with partner teams and drive technical solutions for their problems. You will need to anticipate bottlenecks, assess risks, make trade-offs balancing business vs technical constraints and drive effective teamwork, communication, collaboration and commitment across multiple disparate groups with competing priorities.

On a day-to-day basis, you'll be part of a small, close-knit team of engineers and PMs that are agile, data driven, and highly collaborative. You’ll help analyze customer behavior, propose ideas and solutions during sprint planning with your team, implement big ideas, and then measure the results. TPMs on our team have driven ideas that have impacted millions of customers and generated millions of dollars in revenue. Outside of work, we have weekly team social events and we regularly get out of the office (rain or shine) to clear our heads and have some fun in Seattle as a team.

If you have some big ideas and the drive to make things happen, we want to talk.
