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, and from terrestrial radio to streaming. In addition, publishers are increasingly adding video content to their online experiences. 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, Amazon Music, 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 technology 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.

You will be our single threaded leader for shaping innovative ideas into launched products across the world that our customers will love. You will be the voice of the customer. This role is inherently cross-functional with a high degree of ambiguity - you will work closely with engineering, design, operations, finance, and executive teams to bring features and products to market, and grow business opportunities. You will be a highly visible leader that will own the communication, coordination, and execution of key product launches. You will work with senior leaders to define strategy and requirements and then execute.

A successful candidate is analytical, able to work 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 their customer. The ideal candidate will have a well-rounded technical background as well as a history of leading complex, ambiguous projects end-to-end - with a passion for advertising.
