Job Description

Alexa is the Amazon cloud service that powers Echo, the groundbreaking new Amazon device designed around your voice. We believe voice is the most natural user interface for interacting with technology across many domains; we are inventing the future.

This role will work with a focused team of engineers building out new products and features on Alexa. You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of a cutting edge product that will be used every day by people you know.

As a TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance customer and business needs versus technical constraints. An ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected. We are looking for entrepreneurial, innovative individuals who thrive on solving tough problems. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent, and leadership are essential to success in this role.

  • 2+ years of coding experience in Java, C++, and Perl
  • Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science or related technical field
  • Experience managing efforts in Unix/Linux environments, distributed systems and/or developing large scale web applications
  • A first-hand working knowledge of current web technologies
  • Experience with business applications such as Word, Excel and Project

Preferred Qualifications


• Ability to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical individuals.
