What a day looks like

Market managers heavily rely on influence without formal power to push projects to completion, increase brand loyalty, and enhance the shopping experience for customers in brick and mortar locations. At the market and district levels, they cultivate relationships with important internal and external players. They act as the Ring, eero, Amazon, and Blink product and service experts, leading group training sessions for sales representatives on how to market Amazon’s extensive selection of goods and services. Market managers closely collaborate with retail partners and customers to acquire information that will help them develop better products and services and influence business choices. They make sure all Amazon, Ring, eero, and Blink devices and services are integrated to standard across retailers for the Amazon in-store experience and merchandising.
