Specialty Recruiting (SR), comprised of Amazon's Executive, Strategic (Science and Design), and SWAT (Principal, Senior Principal, and Distinguished Engineers) recruiting teams, is seeking a Senior Program Manager to lead a new Search Accelerator Team. In this role, you'll set organization-wide strategic direction, envision, create and run programs that accelerate hiring from several critical channels. To begin, the Accelerator Team will focus on the Employee Referral channel, our strongest source of hire. The Accelerator Team will re-invent how we tap Amazonian networks to generate employee referrals with the PM driving the vision! In this role, the PM will completely re-design the way Specialty Recruiting seeks referrals, building a mechanism to proactively surface referrals for top job searches.

This is a highly visible role that will own goals reported across the organization and will impact Specialty Recruiting's strongest source of hire across multiple lines of business. The role requires a brave willingness to experiment with new ideas and recruiting methods, the ability to earn the trust of Recruiters and Amazonians, strong analytical skills and a high standard of operational excellence.

The ideal candidate operates effectively in an ambiguous environment and has a demonstrated track record of managing multiple projects and driving them to completion. This person should be flexible in approach and willing to think creatively about experimenting with new channels.

This is a great role for someone who shares Amazon's belief that the success of the Company is determined by its employees; who is passionate about bringing the best senior, diverse talent to Amazon; and who is excited about leading initiatives to improve the effectiveness of the team.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Build new programs, recruiting processes, and mechanisms to accelerate hiring from the Employee Referral and other critical channels.

  • Develop the infrastructure to enable SR Recruiters to accurately track, measure and audit the effectiveness of and experiment with the Employee Referral channel.

  • Engage with Amazon's central Employee Referral program as well as business unit Talent Acquisition teams to learn from and apply relevant best in class Employee Referral processes to SR's practices.

  • Produce monthly business reporting and communicate to senior leadership.
