Amazon is focused on protecting the health and safety of our employees while continuing to serve people who need our services more than ever. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But, for this to work, we as a society would need vastly more testing capacity than is currently available. Unfortunately, today we live in a world of scarcity where COVID-19 testing is heavily rationed. Until we have an effective vaccine available in billions of doses, high-volume testing capacity would be of great help, but getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments.

For our part, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity.

As a Sr. Product Manager, you own product innovations across the testing experience. You are a self-starter who thrives on ambiguity and is comfortable wearing many hats. You create highly functional products that balance accuracy, efficiency, and safety, while also preserving each individual's privacy and dignity. Collaboration is critical to your process. Your work is informed by partners, research, metrics, and high judgement.
