Content Strategy Manager - Devices

Description

The Amazon Devices Brand Marketing team is seeking a detail-oriented, customer-obsessed, passionate, and resourceful Content Marketing Manager. We support devices brands including Kindle, Fire TV, Fire Tablets, and Amazon Echo. In this role, you will manage content opportunities across marketing platforms, and build relationships with key content providers – including movie and TV studios.

This role will develop, manage and execute a content acquisition strategy to support product positioning and integrated marketing campaigns across the Amazon Devices portfolio, including broadcast TV, online video, print, social, online product pages, packaging and in-store merchandising. In partnership with creative, marketing, and business development teams, you will define the criteria for content selection, and collaborate with creative teams to develop marketing assets for devices that tell the story of our digital content ecosystem.

This position will manage negotiations, approvals, deliverables and clearance requirements for content, working with television and movie studios and cross-functional teams across the organization (Appstore, Alexa Skills Store, Kindle Books/Magazines, FreeTime, Amazon Music, Amazon Studios, Twitch, Comixology, Amazon Game Studios) – consistently gathering high-quality assets for publication and broadcast use. The ideal candidate works fast and can handle several projects – often in various stages of development. In this role, you will enjoy collaborating with global product marketing, product management, UX and brand design teams across multiple organizations, and consistently deliver high quality results despite competing priorities. You understand how great content can be a key growth driver. You know how to leverage data to inform editorial direction. You aren't necessarily deeply technical, but you aren't afraid of tech either.

The ideal candidate will be well versed in acquisition and management of creative assets, with a sense of humor and an ability to have fun while working hard. A passion for movies and TV with a pulse on industry trends is key.

Responsibilities:

  • Own and drive the strategy and process for managing content and its commercial use; influence campaign concepts by suggesting content that is compelling and drives intent to purchase.

  • Develop, own and continually improve content process and opportunities – establishing best practices to drive a streamlined process while growing the quality and breadth of available assets.
  • Work with existing content assets, internal content resources, and 3rd party content creation resources to prioritize, define, and create the content you'll need most to be successful.
