Prime Video is changing the way people watch movies and TV shows, with millions of titles available on-demand on Kindle, Fire TV, mobile devices, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs, and Blu-ray players. Are you excited about launching content on Prime Video and holding key impact on helping our business scale? Are you interested in shaping the future of Trust & Safety for our Prime Video operations? Do you want to work in a large scale organization, but with a start-up feeling? Do you want to create processes, operating models, and drive Amazon network improvements? Do you have a strong passion for continuous improvement and implementing methodologies such as Six Sigma and Lean?

We are seeking an innovative and analytical Forecasting & Planning Manager to support the Prime Video Trust & Safety Operations team to drive and align long-term capacity strategy and planning for the Prime Video Trust & Safety program, while standardizing business requirements as you are driving improvements in cost-to-serve initiatives. Prime Video Trust & Safety programs aim to enable a globally trusted customer experience by ensuring that Prime Video (PV) provides content customers love and trust and accurate, meaningful and complete information to empowering customers to make informed viewing choices for themselves and their children.

This role emphasizes creating alignment among various stakeholder teams. The Forecasting & Planning Manager will design scalable programs that optimize business size for our top partners while also ensuring we don't weight too much capacity on too few partners. By working closely with multiple teams, both upstream and downstream, the Capacity Planning Manager will establish a cohesive approach to find this balance. This opportunity requires excellent problem-solving, communication skills and a strong track record of delivering results. A strong record of customer advocacy and influence without authority is important for this role.

This role will manage a team of 4 analysts based in San Jose, Costa Rica and Bangalore, India.
