In executing this role, you will work directly with internal legal, logistics, supply chain, tax, transfer pricing, finance, and engineering teams, Amazon€™s global network of trade and compliance teams, and a variety of external Amazon partners.

As a Sr. Trade Compliance PM, you will be responsible for managing the life-cycle of complex cross-functional risk programs across Amazon organizations independently. You will define the risk programs, set objectives, and drive improvements to your space that are quantified with metrics. In executing your program, you will partner with internal and external stakeholders including business teams, public policy, trade legal and regulators to interpret and apply regulations to business processes.

You will clearly identify timelines and owners, and drive progress at the appropriate speed to reduce risk to some of the world's most cutting-edge technology teams.

To successfully build your trade compliance solutions across cross-functional teams, you will earn trust with stakeholders by learning about and understanding their business lines and products. You will drive alignment by providing near and long term considerations and impacts, and highlight recommended trade-offs and priorities. When confronted with discordant views, you will drive the best way forward and build consensus.

In making decisions, you will act quickly to balance risk and customer experience. You will test assumptions by getting feedback from the right input providers across the company and reviewing metrics and benchmarks. You will work with business intelligence engineers and technology teams to design, build and track key performance indicators and systems.

The Sr. Trade Compliance PM will be responsible for communicating risks, proposals, regulatory updates and strategies to internal and external stakeholders in meetings and documents. Clear and compelling communication is critical to success in this role.
