Alexa Music’s partner product team manages all of our top partners (e.g., Spotify, Apple) to ensure a quality product on Alexa Music. To delight customers, we build new features and drive adoption of new products. We are seeking an innovative and technically experienced TPM to help define and drive this mission.

The ideal candidate will bring an ability to implement a broad program vision complemented by strong engineering and program management skills. You will need to anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints. The candidate will also be strong at influencing people, highly analytical, able to navigate effectively across a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of technologies into high quality, simple products that customers love. This opportunity requires excellent technical, problem-solving, and communication skills. An understanding of machine learning and AI concepts is desirable.
