Location: Toronto, Ontario

Job Description

Job Description

Do you ever wonder how the packages show up at your door when you ordered from Amazon?
Amazon's global fulfillment business is one of the largest and most complex operations in the world. Our technologically advanced warehouses are at the center. They form the invisible back half of Amazon that magically turns your click of a button into a product at your door. Amazon Sortation Technologies are a key part of that solution, enabling the flow of inventory into and out of warehouses and the consolidation of items for a shipment.

We're seeking a Technical Program Manager to drive the delivery of our products and help build the next-generation of our services. In this role you will be responsible for scoping and delivering large projects end-to-end. These responsibilities include collection of business and systems requirements from internal and external customers, writing specifications, driving project schedules from design to release, and managing production launches. You will lead and coordinate design/implementation efforts between internal teams and external stakeholders. You will be expected to make appropriate tradeoffs to optimize time-to-market, and clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes.

The right candidate will have a strong program management background, will have demonstrated experience leading medium to large projects, and will have a well-rounded highly technical background as will need to interact with developers on daily basis, discussing technical trade offs. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done. As a TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints. An ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential for success in this role.

Basic Qualifications

  • 5+ years of Technical Program Management experience in a related industry
  • 3+ years of coding experience in Java or other OO languages
  • Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science or related technical field
  • Experience managing efforts in delivering distributed systems and/or developing large scale web and enterprise applications
  • A first-hand working knowledge of current web, enterprise, and cloud technologies
  • Experience with business applications such as Word, Excel and Project

Preferred Qualifications

  • Ability to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical individuals.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Track record for being detail-oriented with a demonstrated ability to self-motivate and follow-through on projects
