Hi,

  1. Depending on how many years you've spent in consulting. For each role amazone has a very accurate number of years of experience in job descriptions.
  2. Not that many. The company is very horizontal and the next role is principal / lead. Depends on the product
  3. It has always been Madrid.They are constantly hiring. All the roles are on the website

  1. Fundamentally, ask HR - that's what they're there for! Additionally, ti's just good networking. That being said, you're most likely be suited for the PM role (as a consutlant you have yet to demonstrate project management ability).
  2. I'll tell you one thing - not powerpoint ability! It's banned at Amazon. From people I know working at Amazon as PMs, they tell me it's an organization of do-ers and go-getters. You basically need to get stuff done, problem-solve well, and be comfortable with data and figuring things out
  3. Germany and the UK most likely (the largest offices). That being said, it's growing rapidly everywhere (they just announced efforts to hire another 100k employees world-wide). Again, very much best to ask HR and other people you're networking with in the company!

Hello!

Disagree with the previous answers tbh.

These are simple answers:

  1. SPM, as you can see in the requisites in Amazon Jobs.
  2. Too many to be listed here, but anything level 6 and above, and in all geographies and divisions, since mobility is indeed a reality in Amazon.
  3. Lux office, without any doubts.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara
