Want to transform the way people enjoy music? Come join the team that made Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Live radio and more available to Alexa customers.

You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, and architecture for a product that is used every day by people you know. We’re looking for people who are passionate about innovating on behalf of customers, demonstrate a high degree of product ownership, and want to have fun while they make history.

The Role:
We're seeking a Senior Product Manager to drive innovation for external developers building Alexa music skills. Working backwards from the ideal end customer experience, you will envision, design, and build the APIs and tools enabling Alexa developers to create those showcase music listening experiences. Responsibilities include defining forward looking product road maps, understanding/translating customer needs into business and systems requirements, partnering with internal stakeholder teams, driving project schedules from design to release, and managing the production launch. You will be expected to make appropriate trade-offs to optimize time-to-market, clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes to internal and external teams. You will be frequently working with senior leadership within Amazon, so written and verbal skills are important.

The ideal candidate will possess a strong product background, including experience with platform, empathizing with developer needs and pain points, and launching large features, backed by strong technical competencies. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment and not be hindered by ambiguity. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves and get the job done.
