DESCRIPTION

Do you enjoy organizing data, processes, and strategies in more meaningful ways for end-users? Are you energized by the idea of building sustainable tools and mechanisms stakeholders will use to drive their decision-making and prioritization? Do you want to be part of a global team who leads based on a combination of influence, stakeholder relationship, and practical knowledge?

The Employee Services Operations Engagement team is tasked with defining the needs of their business line customer and landing related initiatives and projects in Amazon’s centralized HR support infrastructure. In the fast-paced, ever-evolving pace of Amazon, this team matches customer priorities with the right area of Employee Services to address the need and provide more efficient and effective results.

We are looking for a talented and driven creative problem solver to design and implement mechanisms for the mutual benefit of Employee Services and customer HR stakeholders alike.

If you have strong data visualization and presentation skills, the ability to work across many functions and geographies, and a knack for telling stories using data and organic experience from a great number of stakeholders and sources, you’ll feel right at home in this role. You’ll support the launch of new products and services, build and expand Employee Services partnerships, define and report on feature sets, and develop process based on Employee Services and customer HR strategy. This role is inherently cross-functional – you will work closely with technology, finance, strategic communications, and support teams across HR to track and report on business-impacting initiatives.
