Description

We are looking for a program manager to shape AMP’s strategy and programs to improve our application’s performance. In this position you’ll build an org-wide vision for performance, engagement among a large set of engineering teams, and then build a multi-year roadmap to realize that vision. This will involve building consensus among cross-functional teams and AMP management, as well as advocating for your vision with business leaders and product owners. This is a hands-on role working with the engineering org, as well as site-reliability engineering, business teams, operational teams, marketing, analytics, and external vendors. You are the thread tying these disparate teams together to deliver end-to-end projects that improve our products globally. You will be involved in all aspects of the project life-cycle, whether it be helping develop functional requirements, getting into the detailed analysis, facilitating proofs-of-concept or QA, and tracking release management of multiple projects at once. You build positive relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and your team; you see around corners; and you deliver.
