Every day, people around the world make new memories and every day people connect with each other around memories past.
Amazon Photos' mission is to help our customers store, relive and share a lifetime of memories - and we do it by earning our customers' trust with a service that is relied on by millions of Prime members, inventing new experiences to surprise and delight our customers, and by integrating deeply with Amazon's other products like Alexa and the Fire TV in order to make these memories shine in your home.
We have been growing as a business and now we are growing as a team, looking to add a leader to the Product Management team to own our core mobile experiences.
Who you are You love products and you love the art of product management. You're looking for a place to apply your experience as an inventor and in product management to a new set of challenges. In some way, shape or form you have material experience building digital, consumer product experiences that live or die by the whims of quixotic, human behavior (e.g. if your only PM experience is building enterprise tools, this likely isn't the right role for you).
What challenges / opportunities you will face A winning photos experience can deliver joy to customers throughout the day: a walk through memory lane with "This Day" as you start your morning, a smile generated as you walk by an Echo Show or Fire TV or glance at a beautiful family portrait printed on the wall; and, at the end of a refreshing weekend when you share the dozens of memories captured with grandparents far away and receive their heartfelt thanks.
However, while the opportunity to enrich people's lives is enormous, we are at a structural disadvantage to the two incumbents in our market-segment: both own/develop mobile operating systems where they've integrated their photos apps at levels we do not have access to and both have over a decade head-start building features and technology to create photos experiences.
The right candidate for this role loves to be the underdog, has conviction that Amazon can build something important in this product category, and relishes in this unique challenge and opportunity.
The unique responsibilities of this role As a Core PM, you will work with both our mobile and backend services teams to define the future of our mobile applications, identifying opportunities to earn our customers' trust and new ways to deliver joy. You will work with a team of UX designers and our feature product managers to make sure we are building a cohesive customer experience as we scale and deliver experiences on mobile from other teams within the organization and as we extend the Amazon Photos experience on Amazon's other mobile products. You will collaborate with our marketing organization to identify new ways to distribute our product and grow our customer base, and be responsible for setting and tracking the right goals to track our success. You will own delivering on our key growth goals related to mobile products.
