Transparency by Amazon represents an opportunity to raise retail industry standards around authenticity, product transparency, and supply chain tracking. Transparency is a strategic new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product launched by Amazon for the global consumer goods industry. We are focused on building a global service which allows brands and consumers to trace the origin of items throughout the supply chain ensuring only authentic items enter the supply chain. The Transparency service is focused on preventing the receipt and sale of counterfeit goods both online and offline. Our customers include individual consumer brands who sell both on and off of Amazon direct and through a network of third-party sellers.
The Transparency team is looking for a Program Manager to help grow the program through bringing in new brands at scale and accelerating growth of existing Transparency accounts. This person will work closely with Transparency Marketing, Sales, and Account Management teams to identify new growth initiatives, use data to measure the effectiveness of growth initiatives, develop lead generation and qualification strategies, and scale approaches that prove effective. The Program Manager will know how to think strategically with an ability to identify root causes of business issues through deep-dive analysis, develop and test hypotheses, make data-driven decisions, and have a strong bias for action to take calculated risks in the absence of data. This person will need to forge strong relationships with cross-functional stakeholder teams.
