Amazon Prime Video is disrupting the traditional television and movie industry with a massive library of high-quality media and reliable digital delivery. Our services are engineered for high availability, maximum reach, and cost savings we can pass on to customers. We enable the world to watch video instantly, from any device, whether on the road or from the comfort of a living room. Today, we operate in 242 countries and territories and support multiple languages and currencies, but we still aspire to grow -- a lot.
We are looking for a talented Principal Technical Program Manager who is ready to work in a rapidly changing industry. This is a strategic role to shape and deliver our technical strategy in developing and deploying new currency and payment solutions for our global customers. You will take on leading the development of new ways for our customers to pay for our service, ensuring they always have the ability to pay no matter what country they come from. This role is inherently cross-functional - you will work closely with many engineering teams and product managers both inside and outside of Prime Video. A successful candidate will be highly analytical, able to work extremely effectively in a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of inputs to deliver high quality products and solutions. You will own regular communication with senior leadership on technology, dependency management, risk mitigation and program health.
The ideal candidate should have thrived and succeeded in delivering broadly adopted technology products or services in a very high growth environment. You should be a strong leader who can prioritize well, communicate clearly and compellingly, and understand how to drive a high level of focus and excellence. You should have keen business sense and also have developed a deep understanding of technology. Qualified candidates have experience defining programs, mapping product requirements to engineering functional specifications, leading large cross functional and cross organizational programs, and successfully delivering complex programs at high scale.
