Sr. Manager, Software Development

Vancouver, BC
Full Time
Are you passionate about enabling millions of customers around the world to buy anything, anywhere, anytime? Can you run large cross-team projects? Are you equally comfortable digging into business requirements and building relationships with other leaders, as drilling into architecture with development teams? Do you want to take the best e-commerce platform in the world to the next level?

We, the Ordering team, need a strong Senior Software Development Manager to lead our Vancouver, Canada office. You will be responsible for large, multi-year initiatives, while finding the right balance between building for immediate needs and building sustainable architectures. You will lead three software development teams to meet challenging goals, and will help us continuously make our systems ready for our current and future challenges. As we build, grow, and scale Amazon's ordering system, it will be critical for you to be customer obsessed, able to dive into technical details, and insist on high standards. You will be a key player in driving the growth of Amazon's Consumer business by enabling more and more business to onboard to the most sophisticated and scalable eCommerce platform in the world. You will drive future solutions that will impact how we run the Consumer business worldwide and interface with many teams, both technical and non-technical, across the company, and - most importantly - you'll get to work with some awesome people having a lot of fun!

A successful candidate will have an established background in developing scalable systems, a strong technical ability, excellent project management skills, great communication skills, a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment, and love working to develop leaders in a growing organization.
