I am PM at Amazon for one year. Before that I was program manager for 3 years at Amazon. I have three years of SDE experience at an IT consultancy firm before doing MBA. What skills and experience I must get under my belt to become PM at Google or Facebook? What kind of projects will help to get such experience?

    As PM at Amazon you get to flex more of your business muscles than technical. I want to explore tech side of product management, learn about designing products and get good at product sense. What teams at Amazon has strong product management roles, where I can get experience that is valued by Google recruiting? I know this sounds weird :)

    That is true. I am in Marketplace. Recently launched ML based product to improve Seller experience. But our org doesn’t have L7/8 PMs to learn from.
