Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. The Role:
Are you interested in jumping into the driver’s seat of our sensational device products?
We have a unique position for an experienced, highly technical, and visionary technical program manager on the Amazon team. Our challenge is to give customers a compelling, secure, and robust experience with a steady flow of fantastic new features throughout the lifetime of their device, and to do all this without the user experience ever skipping a beat. We’re looking for the person to help us continually rethink how to do these things in a highly data-centric fashion.
In this role, you’ll work across many groups and get broad exposure to the entire business. From product marketing to customer service, from hardware engineering to sales, and the myriad teams throughout Amazon that are writing code for user experiences on the devices. We sit at the center of the product and have incredible breadth of impact and opportunity. At the same time, in the midst of this big organization you will get the opportunity to have true ownership and effect real change to the product and the business.
This job will test your skills across the board. Massive cross-group coordination? Check. Ability to deeply understand platform level technologies? Check. Hard-core data analysis and reporting? Check. Not to mention: influence technical architecture/design decisions, advocate for awesome user experiences, put in place useful processes, rip out useless processes, get in the code when necessary, and always be inventing a better way to do things.
And while the challenges are big and the pace fast, we have fun while we’re at it. It’s a high-energy, good-natured, and supportive environment. If you think you have what it takes to help change the world, then apply to join our team.
