Job Description
Amazon's mission is to be earth's most customer-centric company-and the Customer Service Operations Manager is at the forefront of that mission.

We work toward a single goal: To ensure the best possible experience for our customers. To do that, we empower our people to think like owners and solve problems. As a team, we are focused on continuously improving and setting new standards in customer support. You need to love developing individuals at all stages of their careers and not be afraid to get your hands dirty. You have to thrive in the type of environment that is constantly going and growing.

Then Amazon may be the place for you.

Ensuring the development of your direct and indirect reports as you continue to raise the bar on talent.
Work with business teams to illustrate and improve the customer experience.
