DESCRIPTION

Job summary

Are you passionate about Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning? Do you want to develop impactful AI/ML training and enablement strategies? Join us as an Enablement Program Manager supporting our AI/ML Worldwide Specialist Organization!

At Amazon, we've invested deeply in AI/ML for over 20 years, and many of the capabilities customers experience in our products are driven by ML. Amazon.com's recommendations engine is driven by ML, as are the paths that optimize robotic picking routes in our fulfillment centers.

Our supply chain, forecasting, and capacity planning are also informed by ML algorithms. Alexa is fueled by Natural Language Understanding and Automated Speech Recognition deep learning. Computer vision technology powers our new retail experience, Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it's a big part of our heritage.

Within AWS, the AI/ML Worldwide Specialist Organization (AI/ML WWSO) is a team of Business Development Managers (Specialists) and Specialist Solutions Architects focused on bringing that knowledge and capability to customers through three layers of the AWS AI/ML stack: 1) Frameworks and Infrastructure with tools like Apache MxNet and TensorFlow, 2) ML Platforms such as Amazon SageMaker for data scientists, and, 3) API-driven Services like Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Comprehend, and Amazon Rekognition to quickly add intelligence to applications with a simple API call.

Key job responsibilities

This role will lead worldwide AWS internal content management, enablement, and training for AI/ML. As a AI/ML Enablement Program Manager you will be responsible for defining, building and deploying effective and targeted content and enablement programs to accelerate sales and business development activities for the AWS AI/ML managed services.

You will be the internal face of AWS AI/ML enablement and training for the specialist organization and field sales teams. You will define and execute the enablement programs worldwide for AWS AI/ML managed services including Amazon SageMaker, Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Comprehend as well as the rest of the AWS AI/ML portfolio. You will work closely with AWS business development, product management, sales, marketing, solutions architect, and partner teams to build and leverage worldwide programs or campaigns and to enable AWS sales teams to communicate the value of the AWS AI/ML portfolio.

Your work will define and drive the process that the organization follows to accelerate sales through targeted content and enablement. This will include how internal training is structured and communicated, how AWS sales teams find resources to assist in AI/ML adoption, and how the technical field community is trained and prepared to assist customers.

You will synthesize data and information gathered from sales team engagements into the content and enablement strategy for AI/ML to successfully scale efforts through the worldwide sales teams. This entails deriving succinct findings, developing strategic insights, and persuasively communicating those findings and perspectives to senior management.

The ideal candidate will possess a project or program management background with experience driving programs across worldwide stakeholders. The candidate will have technical depth and business experience necessary to easily communicate the benefits of AI/ML services to internal AWS sales teams.
