Executive Assistant, WW Corporate Business Development
Amazon Business and Corporate Development has an exciting opportunity for an Executive Assistant looking to jump into the fast-paced world of Biz Dev. This role will support several directors across a Vice President’s org, providing unique exposure to some of Amazon’s most innovative and interesting partnership engagements. A proven track record of effective time management, taking initiative, working independently, delivering exceptional results, and exceeding expectations is important. Candidates should thrive under pressure, have an interest in strategic business, and—most importantly—possess a good sense of humor (our team prides itself on its fun culture!).
