The tech giant is seeking a product manager for EU product insurance and outlines its intention to “disrupt” the way traditional product services are acquired and delivered.

Amazon is looking for a product manager to look after EU product insurance according to an advertisement posted on job site Linked In.

The advert reveals Amazon’s intention to re-define and disrupt traditional insurance models.

Amazon stated in the advert: “Product insurance is a young and dynamic program in Europe, present in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.

“Along with internal and external partners, we are re-defining the warranties and product insurance experience, disrupting the way traditional product insurance services are acquired and delivered and creating a new palette of services.”

Challenge
According to the advertisement the organisation wishes to “drive growth across Europe” and is seeking someone entrepreneurial who is looking to launch a new business and seeking a start-up challenge.

Last week it was revealed that Amazon is recruiting an insurance team something Amazon declined to comment on at the time.

Amazon added in the advert: “We have ambitious plans to significantly grow operations in our current markets and create new, innovative products that will provide excellent customer experience and satisfaction.”

The product manager will be responsible for projects related to customer acquisition, improving traffic conversion, price strategy as well as active contribution in new products launches.

Part of the job includes taking an “active role in design of the new, innovative product insurance products that will bring additional value to a customer”.

Tech experts in the sector have warned for years that disruption is coming and could come from a retail/tech giant such as Amazon or Apple.

Amazon has been approached for further comment.
