As a Software Development Manager you will have ownership of business-critical systems and services at the interface of Amazon€™s advertising and retail business. You will hire and lead a stellar team of engineers and scientists to build high-throughput systems and optimization methodologies, develop engineering and operational best practices, drive efficient planning and execution of your product roadmap, and collaborate with partners across product, engineering, science, UX and finance to shape our business vision. You will have the opportunity to shape the experience of millions of Amazon customers every day, and your success will be measured ultimately by your ability to improve their experience with Sponsored Products.
