Amazon Alexa is seeking a Senior Technical Program Manager. In this role you will be responsible for scoping and delivering large programs across Alexa. Responsibilities include collection of business and systems requirements from internal customers, writing specifications, driving delivery timelines from design to release, and managing the production launch. You will lead and orchestrate design/implementation efforts between internal teams to develop optimal solutions. You will make tradeoffs to optimize time-to-market, clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes to internal cross-functional and remote project teams.
The right candidate will possess a strong program management background, will have demonstrated experience leading large programs, and will have a well-rounded technical background in current web technologies and cloud infrastructure. You must enjoy an entrepreneurial environment and manage ambiguity and competing priorities to deliver high value features and products. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done. As a Senior TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints. An ability to take large, complex programs and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role.
