Video advertising is a complex, multi-sided market with many technologies at play within the industry. The industry is rapidly growing and evolving as viewers are shifting from traditional TV viewing to OTT.
Amazon’s video advertising program is a rising competitor in this industry. Amazon’s service has differentiated assets in our customer & audience insights, exclusive video content, and associated inventory on our streaming services (IMDbTV, Twitch, Prime Video, etc.) and devices (FireTV, Echo, Fire Tablet) which all position us well as an end to end service for advertisers and agencies. As our business grows, we are continually experimenting with a portfolio of emerging ideas and technologies as well as global expansion. We are looking for passionate, hard-working, and talented individuals to help foster these nascent ideas into scalable products and launch them into the market.
As the Sr. Product Manager-Tech for Video Ads Delivery Optimization, you will drive business initiatives across multiple stakeholders, including, sales, product, engineering and operations teams within the Advertising organization. You will oversee multiple initiatives that enable delivering on our commitments to advertisers and shape products changes to scale our business. This will require both hands on diving into issues and zooming out to manage trade-off decisions and drive consensus with leadership and partners.
A successful candidate is highly analytical, able to work extremely effectively in a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of technologies and capabilities into products that advertisers love. You must engage with customers to deeply understand their current and emerging needs. Video advertising is rapidly evolving and you must develop customer insight to identify solutions and invent on behalf of our customers. We are looking for someone customer obsessed and technology savvy - with a passion for advertising. The ideal candidate will have a well-rounded technical background as well as a history of leading complex, ambiguous projects end-to-end.
