Time and Attendance is looking for a Senior Manager to own global time and attendance policy.
Time and Attendance (TAA) is a rapidly growing team tackling new, hard problems that Amazon has not solved at scale and creating fundamentally improved ways for employees to record time and receive accurate pay. We balance start-up vision and operational excellence, technical complexity and clear product definition, and global scope across multiple Amazon businesses. We are developing software solutions to support Amazon's high-growth populations.
We've all heard about 24/7/365. That's 8760 hours in a year. Now multiply that by the hundreds of thousands of hourly workers at Amazon those who work in our fulfillment, customer service, Alexa data services, and AWS data centers; employees in our growing number of Amazon Books bookstores and subsidiaries. On every continent. Factor in the number of different variations of a "work week," work day, overtime, and an equally daunting amount of reporting requirements. We must be able to move at Amazon speed and support new and varied business launches.
Are you up for the challenge? Think big and join this start-up team.
Who are we looking for to join our team?
In order to achieve rapid deployment of time solutions, we need to clearly understand the time and attendance policies - and resulting pay rules - for our associates. TAA is looking for a dedicated leader to work with HR, Compliance, Legal, business line leaders, and our product team drive simplified and consistent global time and attendance policy. Undocumented policy is the biggest barrier to efficient requirements gathering and shorter development cycles. Complex policy creates a poor associate and manager experience, and unneeded policy differentiation can create friction for associates as they move between sites or businesses. This is a high visibility role that requires perseverance and invention, tech fluency, an ability to earn trust quickly, and the ability to write documents to drive decisions with director and VP-level business, HR, and legal leaders across Amazon.
The TAA policy leader will manage a team responsible for documenting policy requirements for time and attendance system implementation, cultivating a pipeline of standardization opportunities, driving specific policy standardization projects, and providing expertise and thought leadership to the broader product and tech teams. Successful candidates should be comfortable writing for a VP audience, delivering projects with distributed ownership, and working through ambiguous problems with undefined owners. The right candidate is one who dives deep and has demonstrated success delivering results in previously undefined problem spaces.
