Are you looking to create value for millions of customers by leading transformative innovation that can grow into a billion dollar business? Do you want to work at a company where you are the owner, where you are encouraged to build, and where you have the autonomy to push boundaries? Do you have a passion for technology, and want to work with cutting edge products, and some of the world’s most exciting companies? The pace of innovation and breadth of our businesses are always accelerating at Amazon, and our growth requires leaders who are owners, and who possess the entrepreneurial spirit needed to create new products. Amazon leaders solve complex, cutting-edge problems and get things done.
As a Product Manager-Technical Products (PMT), you will assume end-to-end product ownership over one of our technical products. These products might be hardware offerings, software, or technical services. PMTs will be expected to dive deep into the technology from both a product and customer perspective. Customers may include developers, IT departments, or enterprise CIOs from the world’s best companies. To succeed, a PMT needs to have technical acumen and a passion for technology.
From Day 1, PMTs are given ownership of large products, the autonomy to think strategically and make data-driven decisions, and the ability to drive significant transformative innovation. Over their careers, successful PMTs will be exposed to multiple businesses and products, and will grow into senior level managers who independently run large business segments and organizations. PMTs work in various organizations across Amazon, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Prime Video, Alexa and Appstore, and Supply Chain Technologies. Some examples of PMT roles filled by recent MBA hires include:

·
· Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2): Perform cross-platform product management of EC2 through investigating the creation of new businesses, building a software channel, defining specifications for new servers and instance types, improving the developer experience, rolling out new regions, and re-pricing the offering.
·
· Amazon Database Services: Own a service that makes “web-scale” big data analysis accessible to everyone from large pharmaceutical companies to individual game developers. Grow the service from a niche into a major business.
·
· AWS Mobile: Own a brand new service offering that enables mobile developers to manage user identities and data synchronization across devices. Drive all aspects of product management from features to pricing to launch activities. Work with Business Development and Sales to identify and win major customers and define follow on product and business opportunities.
·
· Amazon Music & Video, Appstore and Game Services: Work with software engineers to design, build, and launch new experiences for customers around music and video, appstore, games, and software. Lead demand generation for the business, which includes customer segmentation, marketing, and big initiatives to improve the customer experiences.
·
· AWS Marketplace Strategy for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): Build a business case for offering SaaS through AWS Marketplace. Build a pipeline of potential products and a strategy for recruitment. Work with engineers to determine possible technical implementations and build a mockup of the customer experience.
·
