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.

To help solve this problem, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity. We are seeking a Principal Product Manager – Technical to help bring this program to life. In this role you will develop highly functional products that balance accuracy, efficiency, and safety, while also preserving each individual's privacy and dignity. The ideal candidate thrives in a fast-paced, ambiguous, changing environment and has experience working on products that require collaboration with multiple teams across Amazon. Success in this role requires strong customer focus and business judgment, and skill at breaking down complex, high-level ideas into executable features and distinct phases. The ability to influence cross functionally and across the organization, at all levels, will be absolutely critical to success in this role.
