Amazon Corporate LLC Senior Manager, Software Development in Seattle, Washington
You are a leader of software managers and product strategists. You know how to create, motivate and run independent program teams. You firmly believe that matrix organizations are for relics of a bygone era. Agile is just the start - when your teams get moving they can deliver changes to customers continuously, and are not afraid to experiment on a daily basis with new ideas. When you're asked to build a machine learning system that can manage thousands of variables for every session on Amazon while adapting to new training signals in real time, you are technical enough to see all the obstacles and creative enough to overcome them.You know that amazing results come from the smart, hard-working people you surround yourself with. You don't disrespect your phenomenal team by calling them "resources" - even if they're not around to hear it. You prefer to have direct reports that you could see yourself reporting to. You foster a culture of diversity, make it safe to take risks, motivate people to common purpose, and then you give your team room to excel. You run out ahead and clear away obstacles your team never even knew were there.About HCXThe Hardlines Customer Experience team (HCX) builds the software that makes it fun and engaging to shop for everything from skis to smart security systems to spa filters.
