Job ID: 1902714 | Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.

DESCRIPTION

Job summary
This role will own the delivery of cloud-based metaverse services and requires a combination of strategic thinking, business problem solving, building technology and stakeholder management. The ideal candidate will have experience with companies building 3D games, 3D digital twins, or metaverse technology, and have a track record of delivering results with material business impact at scale, working through ambiguity and managing multiple stakeholders. As a product owner on this team, you will talk to customers regularly to find out what they need, but also to keep a firm pulse on where the industry is trending. You’ll work with other AWS service teams to deliver integrated features that delight customers. You are technical, data driven and get into the details - performing market analyses, usability studies, and studying usage patterns to evolve existing features. You will possess excellent command over written and verbal communication to interact with executives internally and externally.

Each day, our customers push the boundaries of 3D experiences and what is possible with AWS. We built O3DE in support of customers wanting to create high-fidelity, engaging gaming and non-gaming 3D content on the backbone of AWS's massive cloud compute capacity. Customers love O3DE's powerful renderer, its Script Canvas visual scripting engine, cross-platform architecture, EMotion FX animation editor, AWS & Twitch integration and so much more. But that's not all. We're increasingly seeing customers use O3DE tech for interesting non-gaming applications. Our teams are growing in support of innovations for both, games and non-gaming customers. The O3DE team is looking for a product leader to own, define and drive vision in several related areas, including metaverse services, game engines, simulations, rendering and more.

About the Team
O3DE is a free and open-source AAA game engine deeply integrated with AWS and Twitch. We are an Amazon Web Services (AWS) team obsessed with helping developers create the highest quality games & simulations, engage massive communities of fans, and connect their content to the vast compute and storage of the cloud. Our customers include indie game developers, large studios of repute building triple-A titles, and partners and other Amazon teams building non-traditional experiences. We are looking for a technical product manager who is passionate about innovating in the games, simulations or cloud services space. This role is an opportunity to join one of Amazon’s newest growth areas by leading projects of strategic importance with very high visibility.

Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
