Sr. Manager, Product Management, AWS Insights and Optimization

New York, NY 10007


Job summary
Amazon Web Services is seeking an unconventional, visionary, and driven Sr. Manager, Product Management for the AWS Insights and Optimization team. Our team's vision is to be the world's authoritative provider of cloud insight and optimization products, where customers can understand, control and optimize usage of the AWS cloud. Because we sit at the nexus of all services and interact directly with end-customers, we build relationships with teams across AWS to ensure that we offer a secure and reliable customer experience.

As a Sr. Manager, you will serve as a senior member of our product management team, build and lead a team of expert product managers, and own the product roadmap, positioning, and go to market success for our cloud insights and optimization products. Your team will define, price, and package capabilities to address customer needs. You will get to work in a large-scale business used by a large group of AWS customers, and have a big impact every day.

Here are qualities we desire in a product leader:

Be fun and inspiring to work with. At AWS, we have a credo of €œWork hard. Have fun. Make history€. In this role, you will love what you do, and instinctively know how to make work fun for your team and partners. You will be dynamic and creative, and able to motivate your team to take on any challenge, work across teams, and make a big impact.

Enjoy communicating with customers and partners. You will have a passion for helping customers of all shapes and sizes, from hot start-ups to established enterprises, understand how our products can help take their cloud adoption to the next level.

Have an unbridled passion for technology. In 2020, AWS comprised more than 160 services, and we are continuing to innovate at a rapid pace. The ideal candidate will be passionate about technology and helping marry the most complex technical concepts into coherent solution value propositions that make business sense to customers and partners.

Be a role model for boundary-less collaboration. Your team will work hand-in-hand with many internal and external stakeholders to translate market insight into features and roadmaps; support product marketing to develop messaging and promotional content, drive product launches and adoption programs; and enable business development, solution architecture, sales and partners.

Possess a hybrid, results-oriented skill-set. While the ideal candidate is highly capable doing the inbound activities involved in building great products, you can focus your team€™s energy outbound as well. You are comfortable hands-on in the trenches executing on deliverables as needed to grow your products.

Learn and Be Curious. We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.

Our team is diverse! We drive towards an inclusive culture and work environment. We are intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Team members are active in Amazon€™s 10+ affinity groups, sometimes known as employee resource groups, which bring employees together across businesses and locations around the world. These range from groups such as the Black Employee Network, Latinos at Amazon, Indigenous at Amazon, Families at Amazon, Amazon Women and Engineering, LGBTQ+, Warriors at Amazon (Military), Amazon People With Disabilities, and more.

We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal life
