Come help us to build a world-class Public API framework as part of one of Amazon's fastest growing strategic businesses; Performance Advertising. Our global platform provides self-service low-latency systems at massive scale for Advertising Products. Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses driving long term growth, and as such our organization's initiatives are highly visible to Amazon's executive leadership. We are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities, and have been a broad mandate to aggressively experiment and innovate.
We are looking for a Technical Program Manager to participate in the full development lifecycle of Amazon's public Advertising API and API framework. These services are instrumental to enabling advertisers and their partners to easily create, manage and optimize advertising campaigns through programmatic and file-based interfaces. Such services are at the core of Amazon's plans to scale its advertising programs. Our aspiration is to build the fastest and most reliable API in the business.
You will work closely with engineering teams and upstream advertising services to expose internal system capabilities to the outside world in a fashion that accommodates extreme load and latency requirements. You'll have opportunity to work closely with external integrators and other consumers of Advertising APIs
