Amazon Senior Product Manager, Inbound Transportation, Global Logistics in Boston, Massachusetts

Description

Amazon Inbound Transportation, part of Global Logistics, is at the forefront of managing the journey of billions of units sold in the Amazon store every year. Our logistics network plays a pivotal role in Amazon's success, setting the standard in the eCommerce industry. Items sourced from both vendors and sellers, with vendors being companies selling products to Amazon at wholesale prices, and sellers being individuals or businesses selling products directly to customers through the Amazon marketplace, flow through our network. To cater specifically to sellers, Amazon developed a managed transportation program, which oversees freight transportation within the USA, ensuring sellers benefit from competitive rates, seamless experiences, and expedited inbound speed. By enhancing visibility and enabling faster selection availability, the program adds significant value to Amazon's operations.

The Inbound Transportation BizOpz team is currently seeking a driven Product Manager to oversee the cost structure of the transportation program. This role offers a unique opportunity to steer the financial performance of one of Amazon's flagship programs, playing a pivotal role in its ambitious growth trajectory.

Collaborating closely with our in-house tech department, the candidate will be responsible for developing and scaling innovative solutions aimed at optimizing costs while ensuring exceptional customer experiences. We are seeking an individual who can envision a grand product strategy while delivering tangible results incrementally. Proficiency in analyzing data to develop compelling business cases, prioritize features, and gauge the impact of product launches is essential. Central to this role is a focus on delivery; we seek someone who thrives in entrepreneurial environments and is unfazed by ambiguity or competing priorities.
