Amazon is growing, and we need MBA interns who are owners capable of breaking down and solving complex problems, and who have a strong will to get things done. MBA interns are given ownership of large, important areas of opportunity. You will have the autonomy to think strategically, make decisions, and drive significant impact to the customer experience and the business. To be successful, you must be passionate about the business, flourish in ambiguity, and demonstrate nimble leadership.
As a Senior Product Manager (PM) intern, you will invent new products and features on behalf of customers. You are the business owner of the product who will work cross-functionally to drive ideas from conception to execution, developing marketing plans to drive awareness and adoption, segmenting customers and developing business models, defining and analyzing success metrics, and managing strategic projects.
An Amazon MBA summer internship is 11-12 weeks long, consisting of a strategic project that is data intensive, analytical, centered on a real business issue, and representative of the full-time role. PM interns will have ownership of a high profile project within a product management business organization, where they will partner with key business groups and clients. By participating in the internship, you will have opportunities to analyze unique business ideas, make data driven decisions and provide input to drive meaningful change. Each intern will have exposure to upper level management (including Vice Presidents and Directors) and the opportunity to apply general business and product management skills to support successful execution of corporate strategies.
Successful PMs ultimately become general managers responsible for running large business segments and operate in organizations such as Kindle Content, Seller Services, Supply Chain Optimization Technology, Logistics, International Consumer, Kindle Marketing, Prime Now, Prime and Delivery Experience, and Payment Products. Examples of former intern projects include:
• Global Search Experience: Improve customer search experience for global product categories. Conduct comprehensive external and internal needs assessment, create a scalable strategy and develop metrics to enable tracking. Work with a team of engineers to implement changes based on findings during the internship.
• Amazon Payment Products: Evaluate small-and-medium sized business (SMB) usage of gift cards for promotional and incentive purposes, size the opportunity (in the tens of billions) and develop a product strategy and business requirements to launch simple to use self-service tools to allow small businesses to leverage Amazon gift cards for consumer incentives, employee rewards and disbursement purposes.
• Supply Chain Optimization Technologies: Implement programs that enable sustainability, including reduction in waste and energy utilization, and preservation of natural resources.
• Amazon Marketplace: Work on new category expansion and growth (e.g., Handmade) through improving customer experience and seller success. Manage both internal and external partner relationships, determine pricing structures, and define long-term category strategy.
