Sr. Materials Program Manager

Job ID: 673924 | Services, Inc.


Blink was the result of one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns ever and is now part of Amazon Devices, the consumer electronics division that brings you the Kindle, Fire Tablets, Fire TV, and Echos. We build the wireless, battery-operated home security cameras that send motion-activated alerts and HD video to a smartphone for an amazingly affordable price.

Help us create supply chain planning procurement capabilities that ensure our customers get what they want when they want it. As our product segment is in its infancy, everyone is required to be entrepreneurial, wear many hats, and work in a highly collaborative environment that is more ‘startup’ than ‘big company’. At the same time, your strategy needs to support the complexity, scale, and expectations that come with Amazon’s high standards in this function.

What will you help us create?
