DESCRIPTION

Have you ever ordered a product on Amazon websites and, when the box arrived, wondered how you got it so fast, how much it would have cost Amazon, and what kinds of systems & processes must be running behind the scenes to power the whole operation? If so, the European Supply Chain Analytics team is for you.

Amazon seeks a well-organized, results-oriented Product Manager to join our European Supply Chain team. You will be responsible to organize the launch of new Fulfillment Centers into our complex and ever growing fulfilment network in Europe. Successful candidates are strong owners capable of coordinating parallel work-streams in a perfectly coordinated fashion. They love solving complex problems, but you are equally strong at simplifying them for a less technical audience. More specifically, you will:
· Design and align on the strategy for launching new buildings with all relevant stakeholders.
·
· Communicate effectively, verbally and in writing, to VPs and Directors regarding the status of FC launches, including effective escalation of launch blockers.
·
· Influence business priorities and provide guidance via rigorous data analysis to Operations leadership.
·
· Standardize and de-centralize processes that impact the launch of the new FCs.
·
· Negotiate with stakeholders from different teams across the organization, run effective meetings and set clear objectives and timelines.
·
· Understand the interdependencies between Supply Chain, Operations, Transportation and Finance to resolve launch blockers in real time.
·
· Manage and develop a small team of junior PMs and interns.
·
· Develop metrics and reports to provide guidance on the impact of new FC launches.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

· Advanced analytical skills, and the ability to derive actionable insights from large amounts of data.
· Able to understand technical issues and their implications.
· Curiosity to continue learning, proven record of that aspect along the professional trajectory.
