Senior Program Manager - Amazon Launchpad

Amazon

London, United Kingdom

DESCRIPTION

Do you want to be a key part of a team focused on helping startups launch their new, innovative products on Amazon? The Amazon Launchpad team is looking for a talented, experienced, self-directed person who can create, build, and launch new programs that will support startups in their journey to finding success in the EU. We’re working to make Amazon the first destination for startups to be discovered when they are ready, and need a motivated, self-starter to join our EU team.

This challenging role balances execution, process, and attention to detail with big thoughts and the ability to create and drive new ideas. The ideal candidate will have a record of delivering results, complete ownership of work and outputs, finding a way to work through barriers, finding ways to work efficiently, and have excellent business judgment. S/he should have a demonstrated ability to think analytically about the business, have a critical eye for detail, and have high expectations and standards. At the same time, Amazon Launchpad is a startup program, so the right candidate won’t be frustrated by ambiguity or slowed by a lack of definition. A keen sense of ownership, drive, creativity, and scrappiness is a must. Wearing multiple hats, influencing others to help you succeed in meeting your goals, and “doing the work” is a huge part of our team ethos.

Specific responsibilities include:
· Diving deep in the EU startup ecosystem to understand the journey that takes a company from an idea to global success in Launchpad
· Implement strategic programs in the EU that have been developed and proven in the US
· Create, build, and launch, and administer new programs that will help startups prepare to launch successfully on Amazon in the EU, and grow to become global companies
· Build strategic and execution plans to design and measure the impact of new programs
· Partner with the EU Launchpad team, a colleague PM in Germany, teams across Amazon, and important members of the startup ecosystem to support and deliver on your projects
Amazon Launchpad is a unique program showcasing cutting-edge products from startups and entrepreneurs. We are in the US, UK, Germany, France, Japan, India, and China. This role is focused on the EU.

Before expressing an interest in this role, take a look at the products in the program to understand our unique marketing experience and to learn about the kinds of Founders we are attracting. We are proud to work with a growing list of venture capitalists, accelerators, incubators and crowdfunding platforms to help us identify new, inspired, and cutting-edge products for the world to discover.

If this sounds like an exciting challenge, then we'd like to hear from you.
