Amazon Comms Program Manager, AWS Private Pricing Program in Arlington, Virginia
Are you a strong and organized owner with a track record of operationalizing large, complex workstreams to a successful finish? Do you have excellent verbal/written communication skills that enable you to convey and influence effectively? Amazon Web Services (AWS) is seeking a Comms Program Manager to join the Private Pricing Programs and Experiences (3PX) team.
In this role, you will partner with a team of strategists, subject matter experts, and producers to lead the program management of content and training initiatives for AWS Private Pricing. Your work will span always-on initiatives (e.g., creation and launch of internal/external newsletters), program launches and process/mental model updates, and other special projects. The workstreams you lead will output work to benefit both internal audiences (e.g., AWS field) as well as those external to AWS (e.g., AWS partners and customers). Additionally, you will lead workstreams to drive inspection and reporting of the team’s work to ensure optimal impact. Through this work, you will play an instrumental role in building the Private Pricing Program brand, driving awareness and adoption, and increasing deal count and velocity.
The ideal candidate is a self-driven and exceptionally organized operator who can build robust workback plans and roadmaps, mitigate the unexpected gracefully and effectively, and lead horizontally to drive action through others. You have a track record of delivering projects that are on time and of quality. You drive a wonderfully high bar through your meticulous planning as well as through the efficient processes and mechanisms you build. You can partner effectively with a wide range of stakeholders and drive action. You are focused and can deliver on time and at a high bar in a fast-paced environment. You are an exceptional communicator who can write concisely and with polish, and lead meetings with leaders and stakeholders. You measure success by impact (vs. size of effort), and continuously inspect both approach and output to incrementally raise the bar over time.
