One focus area of the Worldwide (WW) Amazon Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) mission is to provide tools, resources, and environments that support safe, efficient, and healthy behaviors and encourage employees to proactively manage their health and wellbeing. To support this focus area, Amazon is seeking an experienced and innovative Program Manager to serve as our Principal Program Manager for WW WHS to build programs that create a safe workplace and build a world-class safety culture in the midst of Amazon’s explosive growth.

In this role, you will dive deep into project management analytics; identify risks through a combination of data analytics and process assessment; establish network standards for project validation; build programs and deploy innovative solutions to eliminate risks; incorporate standardization regarding project selection criteria and root cause analysis; and work with the Pi3 India team to build out WHS network standards for the Project Management Office.

The Principal Program Manager will work in partnership with the WHS Program Insights and Innovation (PI2) team to provide support and training with regard to project management and execution through the utilization of Six Sigma methodologies (ie DMAIC, Root Cause Analysis).. The creation of this data structure will include standardization and simplification of project entitlement and tracking, which will apply to all Amazon Business Units (BUs). This role will work collaboratively across all BUs and geographies to provide innovative, strategically oriented direction of project selection, data-driven insights and proposals. This role will assist in driving process stabilization, standardization, and continuous improvement for the Global Operations Network.

The successful candidate is one that has an obsession for data driven results and a strong interest in building innovative solutions; must have proven analytical capabilities (including ability to deep dive, root cause and permanently eliminate hazards and risks) and ability to multi-task; and can thrive in a fast-paced environment with exceptional communication and project management skills.
