Job Description

Join the team that just launched the first-ever Amazon retail store. We’ve applied Amazon’s 20 years of online bookselling experience to build a store that integrates the benefits of offline and online book shopping – and it is still very much still Day One. We are looking for entrepreneurial, analytical, creative, flexible program manager to help us make Amazon Books the world’s most customer-centric bookstore and a place that customers love to shop. If you want to join a dynamic, creative team that is making history and breaking new ground for Amazon, this is the place for you.


As the Store Performance Program Manager, you will be responsible for coordinating with multiple teams to deliver store performance tools and processes that help scale and facilitate operations for Amazon Books.

In this high profile role, you will collaborate with numerous operational and business teams to identify, define, and implement solutions to facilitate store management success. You will build harmonious relationships with corporate and field partners, working closely with them to invent and execute a robust store performance project roadmap. You will also prepare and present regular program updates to senior management. This opportunity requires excellent program management, creative problem-solving and effective communication skills. This may be a dream opportunity if you describe yourself as a thoughtful, customer-centric leader with extraordinary analytical skills.

You will thrive in this role by bringing experience defining needle-moving programs and delivering projects that meet rapidly evolving business needs.
