Key job responsibilities
As a Senior Product Manager - Technical in Alexa Communications, you will be responsible for building calling, texting, emailing, and sharing experiences, where Alexa acts as an agent to get things done for customers. This role is cross-functional — you will work closely with engineering, science, design, business intelligence, operations, finance and executive teams to bring features to market and develop and grow business opportunities for Amazon. A successful candidate will be highly analytical, able to work effectively in a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of technologies and capabilities into high quality, simple products and applications that customers love.


As a product leader, you will:

* Own and define the vision, strategy, and product roadmap, manage tradeoffs and dependencies with key stakeholders, and execute on deliverables
* Work closely with the engineering, design, and science teams to develop an offering that will delight customers
* Drive product launches including working with business development, Alexa partner teams, public relations team, executives in other companies, and other product management team members
* Monitor the business and refine the roadmap

A day in the life
Given the scope and high level of ownership that product managers have in Alexa, rarely are two days the same. You are a business owner, customer-facing representative for the service, and the point person for partner teams.

On a weekly basis, you will be working with customers to learn about the problems they are trying to solve, analyzing service and business metrics, writing PRFAQs, BRDs, and naming documents, iterating on product decisions with the Science and Engineering team, working with partners in solution architecture, legal, documentation, etc., thinking big to envision what is next, and exhibiting learn and be curious for different technologies, growth strategies, and market trends.

On a daily basis, you'll have a chance to work with everyone who makes products at Alexa successful, including senior leadership, engineers, business and sales experts, marketing, advocates, data scientists, content writers, and more. You will meet with customers to understand our core strengths and weaknesses. You will synthesize that feedback and other industry knowledge, with business and service data, to create strategies and test hypotheses. People will look to you on a regular basis to solve problems and connect them with specialists. To develop that expertise, you'll constantly be looking to learn by reaching out to other experts within the company and in the larger tech community, using your own product by developing samples, demos, side-projects, and through mentorship, both as a mentor and mentee. Our customers are developers and technical decision makers, so you will be using code, technical documentation, and architecture diagrams to understand problems and communicate solutions.
