Over 2MM Sellers in 9 countries (and growing) list their products for sale to consumers on the Amazon.com Marketplace. Sellers are a critical part of Amazon's ecosystem to deliver on our vision of offering the earth's largest selection and lowest prices. Would you like to join a team working on something even bigger? This is a unique opportunity to be part of the International Seller Services (ISS).
In Jeff's own words (2019 Q1 shareholders letter): "Something strange and remarkable has happened over the last 20 years. Take a look at these numbers:1999 3% …… 2018 58%. The % represent the share of physical gross merchandise sales sold on Amazon by independent third-party sellers - mostly small- and medium-sized businesses - as opposed to Amazon retail's own first party sales. Third-party sales have grown from 3% of the total to 58%. To put it bluntly: Third-party sellers are kicking our first party butt. Badly.…. The compound annual growth rate for our first-party business in that time period is 25%. But in that same time, third-party sales have grown from $0.1 billion to $160 billion - a compound annual growth rate of 52%. ….. Why were independent sellers able to grow so much faster than Amazon's own highly organized first-party sales organization? There isn't one answer, but we do know one extremely important part of the answer: We helped independent sellers compete against our first-party business by investing in and offering them the very best selling tools we could imagine and build. There are many such tools, including tools that help sellers manage inventory, process payments, track shipments, create reports, and sell across borders - and we're inventing more every year."
The ISS organization develops solutions that enable sellers around the world, including the software platform and applications that drive demand generation, customer acquisition, seller integration, customer relationship management, business analytics, and the inventory and order management functions necessary for sellers to manage their business online at Amazon.com.
Our team is made up of people like you. People who are:
Entrepreneurial -We build solutions for all sellers, regardless of size. In fact, many of us are sellers ourselves. Innovative - Our problem space evolves every day due to scale, new categories and new geographies. There is no playbook for a Marketplace of this size, so innovation and creativity are a must.
Passionate - We are passionate about our customers, both sellers and buyers. Everyone's an owner at Amazon, and our team is no exception. Our business is growing fast and the pace is even faster.
Leaders - We recognize the desire for people to lead, whether it is the development of a new feature or ownership of a new category. We invest in our team members, providing challenging roles with significant responsibility. Coaching and mentoring is taken seriously to ensure we continue to build a company we can be extremely proud of.
The ISS team is looking for a talented Senior Technical Program Manager, capable of defining and building new solutions to enable B2C and B2B buying and selling. In this role you will work closely with stakeholders, software engineers and product teams to deliver complex, high quality, scalable products deployed around the world. You will collaborate with the product teams to deliver the best product with most efficient use of resources and technologies. You will work with all the stakeholders to assemble project teams, assign responsibilities, identify appropriate resources needed, and develop schedules to ensure timely completion of projects by meeting project milestones. You will also assess risks, anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, make tradeoffs, balance the business needs versus technical constraints and encourage risk taking behavior to maximize business benefit. Successful candidates will have a technical background, be detail driven and have excellent problem solving abilities.
