DESCRIPTION Amazon Media Group operates at the intersection of e-Commerce and Advertising, offering a rich array of digital display advertising solutions with the goal of helping our customers find and discover anything they want to buy. As the Sr. Product Manager you will have single-threaded ownership for a new advertising program, driving product strategy and delivery, metrics and data, customer experience, marketing, and advertiser experience. Some problem spaces we'll be working on: AUDIENCE TARGETING AND INSIGHTS- we have a wealth of data already about the customers we interact with: what they've been shopping for, what they've recently purchased, etc. This data can be used to help us decide what else they are likely to be interested in and to respond to. Accessing this data and making decisions across large numbers of potential responses in a matter of milliseconds is a tough problem, and requires complex high scale engineering both online and offline. MACHINE LEARNING & ANALYTICS - there's an almost overwhelming amount of data available, and we need to build the best models to predict which signals are likely to have an impact and which aren't. We're building platforms to automate the generation, validation, and publishing of models that incorporate all available data to predict any measurable signal. You will be working in the designing, building and finally shipping these products together with partners, product management, other engineers and data scientists.
