DESCRIPTION

Prime Video is changing the way millions of people watch movies, TV shows and Live TV, with an incredible selection of titles available to watch on Fire TV, Kindle Fire, smart TVs, mobile devices, game consoles, Internet-connected PCs, Macs, Blu-ray players and set-top-boxes. Prime Video is on the forefront of disrupting the video entertainment and sports industries, enabling teams and leagues to offer their content to customers without a cable subscription. We are leading the way through offerings including NFL Thursday Night Football, Ligue 1 in France, and the English Premier League. And it's still Day 1.

We are looking for a talented Senior Technical Program Manager to support Prime Video in launching the NFL's first ever national broadcast package available exclusively through a streaming provider. This is a strategic role to shape and deliver our technical strategy in developing and delivering this offering to customers and to innovate on the CX Prime Video's sports fans enjoy. This role is inherently cross-functional - you will work closely with engineering, project management, design, operations, finance, legal, business development, customer service, content acquisition, operations, and executive teams to bring products to market, develop and grow business opportunities, and enhance our customer experience. A successful candidate will be highly analytical, able to work extremely effectively in a matrix organization, and adept at synthesizing a variety of inputs to deliver high quality products and solutions. You will own regular communication with senior leadership on technology, dependency management, risk mitigation and program health.

The ideal candidate should have thrived and succeeded in delivering broadly adopted technology products or services in a very high growth environment. You should be a strong leader who can prioritize well, communicate clearly and compellingly, and understand how to drive a high level of focus and excellence. You should have keen business sense and also have developed a deep understanding of technology. Qualified candidates have experience defining programs, mapping product requirements to engineering functional specifications, leading large cross functional and cross organizational programs, and successfully delivering complex programs at high scale.
