    Do you want to work on revolutionizing the way Alexa is used? Are you looking to work with one of the best product and engineering teams in Amazon? Join us.

    Amazon Alexa is seeking a Senior Technical Program Manager. In this role you will be responsible for scoping and delivering large projects across Alexa. You will lead and coordinate design/implementation efforts between internal teams and outside merchants and vendors to develop optimal solutions. You will be expected to make appropriate 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 projects, and will have a well-rounded technical background in current technologies. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. 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 projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, drive the technical design meetings, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and technical leadership are essential to success in this role.

    Basic Qualifications

    • Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Science or related technical field or relevant work experience
    • 7+ years of Technical Program Management experience in a related industry, including hands-on management of large, cross-functional software efforts
    • Experience communicating technical concepts to a non-technical audience.
    • Experience managing cross functional technology, product management, QA and testing teams to deliver complex products
    • Experience working in a Software Development Team.
    • Experience managing efforts in distributed systems and/or developing large scale web applications

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Experience managing efforts in Android development environments, distributed systems and/or developing large scale mobile applications
    • A first-hand working knowledge of current mobile technologies
    • Ability to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical individuals including external partners
    • Excellent oral and written communication skills
    • Track record for being detail-oriented with a demonstrated ability to self-motivate and follow-through on projects
    • Experience developing and launching products that require collaboration between internal cross-functional tech teams and external partner teams.
