Amazon - Senior Program Manager - Supply Chain - IIM/NITIE/JBIMS/ISB (6-12 yrs)

Bangalore Job Code: 750433

MBA from a top-tier institute (IIM A/B/C/L, NITIE/JBIMS/ISB), 4+ years of experience is a minimum

We are hiring Senior Program Managers to run complex and cross-functional supply chain operation research projects. This role is a part of the centralized supply chain planning function at Amazon India. The role is very much like an internal consulting role where the incumbent will drive large high impact projects in the supply chain. These projects will typically involve identifying operational inefficiency, driving large cost reduction or efficiency improvement initiatives or launching exciting new supply chain models.

The incumbent will be on the following -

1) They will be responsible for working with category, finance, supply chain execution, transportation and other Amazon teams to identify large high impact projects

2) They will be responsible for driving cost-benefit analysis and go/no-go decisions on various initiatives

3) Once a go decision is made, the senior program manager will work to evolve a plan and timeline for execution.

4) The program manager will develop a roadmap and metrics to measure the progress of the initiative they own. They will also own writing reports that detail the progress of leadership on a frequent basis

5) They will liaise across functions to drive their project and help clarify issues and bottlenecks.

6) They will work with technology teams to scope out and drive any tech changes that are needed

Above all, we expect program managers to be single threaded owners for their initiatives. This is a high ownership position where you directly control your destiny.

Program Managers will be measured on the impact of their project. Depending on the project, clear financial or other impact goals will be set forth. It is the program manager's responsibility to ensure they drive the program towards achieving those goals.

Basic Qualifications :

- At least 8 years of experience in a top tier company driving programs or projects.

- If you have an MBA from a top-tier institute (IIM A/B/C/L, NITIE/JBIMS/ISB), 4+ years of experience is a minimum
