We are bringing Amazon’s trademarks (big ideas and customer obsession) to recruiting at Amazon. Come help us hire the best, build great tools for our hiring managers and recruiters, and help candidates (people like you!) find their next amazing opportunity.

Key job responsibilities
As a Technical Program Manager, your key responsibilities will include:
• You are responsible for managing the lifecycle of a cross-functional program
• You ensure business and technical stakeholder needs are aligned, you drive mindful discussions that lead to crisp decisions
• You routinely deliver the right things with limited guidance
• You oversee the gap between teams, processes, and system architectures, and you help teams/your organization reduce exposure to classic failure modes
• You provide constructive feedback for engineers, managers, and other peers

A day in the life
As a Technical Program Manager, you will define the program (mission, vision, tenets), set objectives, analyze data, drive improvements that are quantified with metrics, and influence resource allocation. You’ll work closely with business teams, leaders, and dedicated user experience design and engineering teams in an agile development environment to build and launch to customers. You’ll track status, mitigate risk and report to your stakeholders, partners and team members on a regular basis. You’ll dive deep into systems to understand limitations, scaling factors, and architectural decisions. There will be a some ambiguity to work through, and you will need strong judgement and leadership skills.
