IT, Operations
Posted on Friday, July 21, 2023


Amazon is investing heavily in building a world-class advertising business and developing a collection of self-service performance advertising products that drive discovery and sales. Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses for driving long-term growth. We deliver billions of ad impressions and millions of clicks daily and are constantly challenging ourselves to create world-class products and an unparalleled shopping experience for our hundreds of millions of customers worldwide. We are a highly motivated, collaborative, creative and fun-loving team with an entrepreneurial spirit and bias for action. With a broad mandate to experiment and innovate, we are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities.

We are part of the Sponsored Products team within Amazon Advertising. We are responsible for driving new core ad experiences on the Search page. This role is central to integrating Sponsored Products into new and existing supply opportunities across Amazon. This role provides a unique opportunity to truly work with a multidisciplinary team of product managers, engineers, scientists, and user research. To deliver on new experience, you will work with PMs, engineers, and scientists to develop large-scale, low latency, and high-performing systems that will integrate with core external systems and services. You will help in standing up a new program to track, monitor, and report on shopper perception about our experiences; and drive insights and opportunities to enable continuous improvements of our product features and experiences. This will require you to collaborate closely with user experience research teams, and data scientists. The impact of this role spans across multiple organizations, and you will be required to influence without authority. We are getting started on solving new problems (e.g., large language model based conversational experiences), so you should be comfortable in navigating through large scale ambiguities that await you in this role. You will work with senior leadership, business stakeholders, science and engineering teams to develop and execute on our roadmap.
