Transparency represents an incredible opportunity to raise retail industry standards around authenticity, product transparency, and supply chain tracking. Transparency is a strategic new software-as-a-service launched by Amazon for the global consumer goods industry. We focus on building a global service that allows consumer brands and consumers to trace the origin of items throughout the supply chain ensuring only authentic items enter the supply chain. The Transparency service is focused on preventing the receipt and sale of counterfeit goods both online and offline. Our customers include individual consumer brands who sell both on and off Amazon direct and through a network of direct and third-party sellers.
The EU Transparency team is a start-up team within Amazon that will be responsible for launching and establishing the Transparency service for consumer brands in EU. As a Partner Manager Transparency, you will qualify and recruit brands and manufacturers to our platform. You will have an opportunity to shape how we execute our vision through collaboration with industry partners, as well as internal and external stakeholders. Within some guidelines, you will manage recruiting European brands, communicate how our service works, ensure brands ability to participate successfully in our program, and ensure a thorough hand-off to the brand onboarding team.
Since this is a relatively new space for Amazon, and an emerging industry, you will be dealing with some ambiguity and convincing brands to become early adopters of our service. This is a unique opportunity to work in a startup environment for Amazon, contribute to product strategy and take on a leadership role as our team evolves.
As a strategic contributor to the Transparency team, you will have the opportunity to dramatically accelerate adoption of Transparency by applying sound sales practices, inventing and simplifying job functions, and training your peers on best practices for efficiency.
A successful candidate for this role will have several years of sales experience working in a fast paced and ambiguous environment. Start-up experience would be excellent - where you have worn many different hats and successfully navigated through complexity while never missing a beat with customers. An extremely strong CUSTOMER OBSESSION is critical to the success of this role.
For this position, we expect..
· Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
· 1-3 years professional experience in Sales or Account Management with excellent negotiation and relationship building skills
· Proficient using Microsoft Office and CRMs (e.g. Salesforce.com)
· Fluent in German and English.
· Ability to work with cross functional teams
