    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Cupertino, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I saw that Amazon had Technical Program Manager jobs available in San Francisco so I applied via the careers section on their website. I didn't hear anything for two months so I figured that they had passed on me. I then saw another posting, this time in Cupertino, so I tried again. Within a couple of days I was contacted by one of their recruiters. I've got a fair bit of experience so he quizzed me about my suitability for a more senior position that he is trying to fill. Unfortunately I didn't meet their criteria of having 50 people reporting to me within the past three years. It's interesting how short a time frame they use to decide if someone has the experience they need. The recruiter suggested that my experience was appropriate for a Senior Technical Program Manager position so I have been interviewing for that job. I've had two phone interviews so far, one with a Senior Technical Program Manager and the second from an Engineering Manager. The questions that they use for interviewing Technical Program Managers are a mix of project management and technical questions.
