Amazon has built one of the most scalable and innovative extranet's for vendors, but it is still Day 1 and there is so much to do.

We are looking for the right business leader who will lead the launch of the next generation of Vendor Central. As the overall business owner of a global portal, you will be responsible for enabling vendors to add millions of products. You will create the vision for the product, devise and implement the strategy and own all business metrics.
