We are looking for a talented Technical Program Manager who designs, drives, launches and owns delivery of experiments and new functionality at high velocity for the Amazon Shopping apps for TV platforms.

The qualified candidate will own the coordination of releaseschedules, running sprint planning, resolving day to day technical roadblocks faced by the team, managing partner relations, and innovating on our mechanisms for rapid experimentation. If you are passionate about driving innovation, then we would like to speak with you about opportunities!

This role requires working closely with the TV Shopping team and key software development teams across the company to define strategy and requirements, and then lead projects through operations design and delivery. This position involves regular communication with management on status, risks and product strategy. Excellent listening, writing skills and strong technical competency are essential.

About you: The ideal candidate thrives in successfully delivering broadly adopted technology products/services in a high growth environment where priorities shift quickly. She or he is a strong leader who can prioritize well, communicate clearly and in a compelling manner, and who understands how to drive a high level of focus and excellence.

From a business and technical perspective, this TPM will:

· Have a strong track record of shaping strategy for technical products or services
· Understand how to design scalable software
· Collaborate effectively with internal partner teams
· Have an entrepreneurial spirit
· Possess a strong understanding of the software development lifecycle
· Professional traits which are not unique to this position, but necessary for Amazon leaders:
· Exhibits excellent judgment
· Has relentlessly high standards (is never satisfied with the status quo)
· Is able to dive deep and is never out of touch with the details of the business
· Has passion and convictions and the innate ability to earn trust of others
· Strong results orientation
If you're worried about technology and experience requirements- don't be. We're looking for smart, passionate and proven people; prior mobile experience is not required.

About us together: Together we will create the shopping experience on TV. We will make it super easy for Amazon customers to shop for products that inspire them on TV, or simply lounge on their couch for a lean back shopping experience.

We will make sure that our customers can buy relevant items without having to switch to another device. Above all, we will experiment, learn a lot and invent the most amazing shopping experience on TV that customers will love.

· Experience with agile or other program management methodologies
· Master's degree in Computer Science and/or Business Administration
