Corporate Projects is a team that sits within the broader Corporate Development organization at Amazon. We seek to bring net-new, strategic projects to life by working together with customers and evolving projects from ZERO-to-ONE. To do so, we deploy our resources towards proofs-of-concept (POCs) and pilot programs and develop them from high-level ideas (the ZERO) to tangible short-term results that provide validating signal and a path to scale (the ONE). We work with our customers to develop and create net-new opportunities by relentlessly canvasing all of Amazon and finding new and innovative ways to strengthen and/or accelerate the Amazon Flywheel.

This is the first time that the broader Corporate Development organization is building a centralized tech team with an Amazon-wide mandate. This team will work on strategic projects with material technical ambiguity and risk. We will work across multiple business and functional domains, and we will be at the cutting-edge of business and technical innovation.

We seek a Senior Data Engineer to serve as the data technologies leader for our team. You know how to design and setup the right architecture to support various data use cases, including business reporting, production data pipeline, machine learning, data modeling, statistical models, and experimentation. You will work with other engineers, project leads, and SMEs around the company to create net-new technical solutions. Your work will have a direct impact on the day-to-day Corporate Projects decision making which can lead to billion dollar opportunities for Amazon.

You are a proven technical leader within your org, identifying problems before others even see symptoms. You are efficient in applying your tradecraft and use the time saved to anticipate next steps and guide/mentor others on your team. Your desire to learn and grow is unbounded. You have built a strong network of technical and business colleagues that span VP and possibly SVP orgs. You seek exposure to a diverse set of technical problems and can work among an equally diverse team of Amazonians to solve them.
