Are you passionate with helping customers discover anything they might want to buy online? Do you want to give them the richest, most inspiring experience in their shopping journey? You are in the right place! Come join our Amazon Marketing & Prime team, where your actions will have direct impact to millions of customers!

We are looking for a talented, smart and entrepreneurial Business Development Manager to join our Affiliate & Partnerships team and develop Amazon’s new partnerships and drive engagement with existing business partners.
The objective is to reach new customers, drive existing customers to discover new products or programs and increase customer loyalty. The Amazon Associates program is one of the most well-known and respected Affiliates programs world wide and enables our partners (from content websites, social presences to large portals) to monetize their online traffic by referring customers to Amazon.
You will be a key member of the Emerging Marketing team and will be interacting frequently with senior stakeholders within Retail and Consumer Marketing while regularly engaging with both current and prospective partners at the C-suit level.

To be successful in this role you will have excellent communication, presentation and organizational skills. You are at ease with data and analytics and can operate in a fast-moving and sometimes ambiguous environment. You will work autonomously taking full control and responsibility for hitting business objectives. This role provides opportunities to develop original ideas, approaches, and solutions in an ever changing business climate.

· Leading efforts on generating and expanding relationships with key partners in the affiliate/publishing space.
· Personally leading key business development activities, from the exploratory phase to the launch and the expansion or partnerships.
· Contributing to the development of our tools, processes and best practices.
· Representing Amazon holistically in front of key partners, involving other Amazon teams as necessary (Prime Video, Amazon Gift Cards, etc.).
· Controlling marketing spend and improving efficacy and efficiency.
· Analyzing and improving business results, reporting to senior management and communicating closely with various internal stakeholders.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record in Sales & Marketing to grow revenue through partnerships in the e-commerce space. You will have strong understanding of SEO, key affiliate integration business models and practices. You will need to grasp the big picture quickly, create ambitious goals, communicate the strategies to achieve these goals, and personally lead business development activities.
