We are seeking an innovative and results-oriented Sr. Product Manager to join our high energy team. This is an exciting opportunity to work on highly visible projects and be part of history in the making!

Our vision for Amazon Kindle is to have every book, ever printed, in every language all available in less than 60 seconds. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is an integral part of reaching this vision, and provides a free, fast, and easy way to publish and sell content on Kindle stores across a variety of devices such as Kindle, PC, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, and Android phones globally. CreateSpace (an Amazon company) enables authors and publishers to reach readers worldwide via print. Together, KDP and CreateSpace are at the center of the creative disruption that is happening in the publishing world by reinventing the relationship between writers and readers. If you are ready to change the world, work hard and help authors succeed, this position is right for you. We offer a creative, fast paced, entrepreneurial work environment where you'll be driving a key part of Amazon's innovation on behalf of content creators and authors.

The Senior Product Manager will define the products and programs for self-publishing, drive projects end-to-end, create and implement solutions with the development teams, and measure its success. Specifically, the Sr. Product Manager will:
· Use data and research to define market and product ideas which will delight and engage authors in using KDP and CreateSpace.
· Develop and write compelling narratives regarding feature ideas for presentation to senior management.
· Develop business requirement documents (BRD) and product specifications to work with engineering organizations to rapidly deliver high-impact features to market.
