Amazon is seeking a world class Technical Program Manager to support cross functional Tax projects as part of the Tax TPM team. The team is newly formed to take on the growing technical challenge of building automated solutions for Amazon's tax related responsibilities. This is an exciting and challenging role, and will give the right person a chance to solve new and unique problems while being a part of a company and a team making history.
This critical role will lead the technical planning, operations design and delivery for Tax of a broad multi-year initiative. Successful candidates will have demonstrated strong technical competency with an exceptional bias for action and comfort driving forward despite ambiguity. A typical project in our portfolio requires strong requirements gathering, exceptional planning, and heavy emphasis on quality and timely delivery. As such, the candidate will often be required to dive deep to remove roadblocks, and carefully manage scope to deliver results on a range of projects while still earning trust across multiple stakeholders. The candidate should be able to work with the business line, and technical and finance/accounting/tax partners to deliver results. This role will own the technical engagement from Tax on a large end to end systems project.
