Job summary
Are you ready to partner with Amazon's cutting-edge business and engineering groups to identify areas of risk? Interested in diving deep into the technologies supporting Alexa, Consumer Devices, and Digital Content (Amazon Video, Amazon Studios, and Amazon Music Unlimited) and to help define roadmaps for product launches and other business initiatives? Are you looking for a position that will leverage and grow your technology skills, expand your knowledge of technology and digital businesses, and provide opportunities to problem solve with some of the best minds in the industry?
We are looking for an IT Audit Manager to lead the planning, scoping, execution, and reporting of audits and help shape the roadmap of projects including risk-based audits and advisory projects.
