You must be able to:

· Drive execution of cross-team projects from inception to launch, formulate product vision and strategy, define and prioritize road maps, and define user stories.
· Work closely with software development teams on defining, designing and delivering high-quality products; provide feedback on architecture, design, and priorities.
· Engage with teams across Amazon to evangelize your team's products and build relationships.
· Identify, assess and mitigate risks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make trade-offs balancing the business needs vs. constraints.
· Clearly communicate plan and project status to management and key technical and business stakeholders.

We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded product manager and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes we do get to build a really cool service, but we also think a big reason for that is the inclusive and welcoming culture we try to cultivate every day. We’re looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we’ve been building.
