At Amazon Publishing, our goal is to introduce exceptional authors and their books to readers worldwide, in many different languages and in both Kindle and print editions. We strive to attract and delight authors and editors by building convenient, efficient, and frictionless services and platforms that will transform the ways they produce, market, and sell books. We operate in a fast-paced environment with tremendous opportunities.

The Amazon Publishing team is looking for a results-oriented Production Manager to oversee the creation of its physical and electronic books. The successful candidate will be well organized and metrics-driven, with a strong bias for action and ability to independently drive end- to-end book creation.

This position works closely with editorial, marketing, publicity and operations as well as with external vendors to ensure our books reach market on schedule and at the highest quality levels. Additional responsibilities include:

· Overseeing and tracking day-to-day production workflows, ensuring processes are documented, efficient, streamlined, and that books are produced at the highest quality
· Establishing priorities, identifying and communicating risks and mitigation plans in collaboration with stakeholders; developing and maintaining program milestones and completion dates
