  2. Strong problem-solving and critical thinking skills to identify root causes, mitigate risks, and drive timely decisions

  3. Excellent communication and stakeholder management abilities to translate complex information and influence without authority

A day in the life

As a Process Improvement Program Manager, your days will be filled with collaborating with cross-functional teams, driving complex projects forward, and finding innovative ways to enhance operational efficiency. You’ll own the communication and status updates, manage risks and dependencies, and leverage continuous improvement methodologies to identify areas for optimization.

You’ll contribute to key organizational documents, influence decision-making with your data-driven insights, and mentor team members to develop their skills.

About the team

The Amazon Customer Excellence System (ACES) is the management philosophy and practice used by Customer Service to eliminate defects and improve customer experience. To add value and achieve long-term results, we have adopted the following tenets:

  1. Human experience comes first. In a conflict between prioritizing between high dollar impact and egregious human experiences (either a customer or employee), the latter wins.

  2. Culture enablers. We amplify the long-term value of continuous improvement by providing others with the tools and mechanisms they need to solve problems independently.

  3. It is ok to fail. We look for ways to say yes and experiment when facing two-way door decisions, because we can iterate, fix it and learn from it.

  4. Process oriented. We believe optimizing processes will improve customers’ experience instead of managing output metrics.

  5. Deep continuous improvement methodology: Our differentiator is our continuous improvement mastery; we invest our resources in process efficiency and root cause elimination over generic program or project management needs.
