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 and important areas of opportunity. As an intern, you will have the autonomy to think strategically and make decisions and to drive significant impact to the customer experience and the business. To be successful, you must be passionate about the business, have technical acumen, flourish in ambiguity, and demonstrate nimble leadership. A technical degree is not a requirement.
As a Senior Product Manager-Technical Products (PMT) intern, you will assume end-to-end product ownership over one of our technical products. These products might be hardware offerings, software, or technical services. PMT interns will be expected to dive deep into the technology from both a product and customer perspective and work with software engineers and business partners to define, build, launch, and grow new technology-driven products and services. Customers may include developers, IT departments, and enterprise CIOs.
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.
PMT interns work in various organizations across Amazon, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Appstore & Games, Amazon Video, Ad Products, Supply Chain Optimization, and Kindle Device. Examples of intern projects include:
• Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Capacity Dashboard and Forecasting Tools: Help customers gain greater visibility into their capacity on EC2 by building a dashboard and forecasting tools. Define customer requirements, and work with the engineering team to deliver and launch the tools.
• Amazon Video: Recommend a customer focused, easy to use, intuitive navigation structure (taxonomy and merchandising) for a universal catalog of content that maximizes active device hours and LTV while minimizing the impact to Amazon’s own subscription (Prime Instant Video) and transactional video businesses.
• Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3): Conduct an analysis of the pricing by looking at the cost structure, competitive offerings and customer needs. Develop a recommendation and implementable plan for a price adjustment.
• Amazon CloudFront Mobile Strategy: Identify customer needs in the mobile content delivery space, recommend long-term plan for CloudFront, and develop a short term implementation plan.
