Amazon Corporate LLC Software Development Manager, Brand Discovery in Seattle, Washington
Job summaryAmazon's shopping experience is designed for shoppers who exactly know what they want. However, not all shopping journeys fit that mold - people shop to explore, discover, refine their tastes or just have fun. Today, Amazon does little to service this type of shopping behavior. We want to address this gap by introducing a new way to shop on Amazon - one that services the less utilitarian aspects of shopping by encouraging shoppers to explore and discover new brands and products by browsing feeds of branded content, enabling brands to share their story and connect with shoppers, while also building brand loyalty. As we create new, complementary shopping experiences, shoppers will be able to choose between buying and exploratory shopping, and seamlessly transition between the two. Our experiences power billions of brand impressions, and we are just getting started.We are looking for a seasoned engineering leader to lead the team building these brand experiences. This is a multi-disciplinary role, and the leader would partner with product, design, science, operations, product marketing, third party integrator's and sales teams in building new products and experiences. Given the strategic importance of this program for Advertising and Amazon overall, this role will have high visibility at S-Team level. Given the early stage of the product, this provides opportunities to think big, and requires a high bar on customer obsession, bias for action, dive deep, insisting on highest standards, and earning trust.Our products and initiatives are highly strategic, and visible across Amazon's senior leadership. The role requires someone with a strong understanding of, and desire to deeply learn customer needs, experience building consumer facing products from the ground up, excellent analytic skills, and the ability to build trusted relationships with internal and external partners at senior (director and VP) levels. Our ideal candidate will be self-motivated, highly goal-oriented, and with a track record of delivering solid results.If the challenge of building brand experiences that will fundamentally change the way people shop on Amazon excites you - please get in touch!#adpt-base-shopping-exp#adpt-base-branddiscovery7+ years of experience working directly within engineering teamsExperience partnering with product OR program management teams3+ years of people management experience, managing engineers3+ years of experience architecting and designing (architecture, design patterns, reliability and scaling) of new and current systemsStrong verbal and written communication skillsStrong analytic and problem solving skillsExperience with agile software development methodologies (Scrum/Kanban)Knowledge of software development best practicesExperience operating critical systemsAmazon is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace.
