About the Position
Twitch Developer Experience is changing the way we watch and play video games. Our ecosystem of developers use developer products every day to make Twitch the premier destination for live, multi-player entertainment. For example, Twitch Extensions allow viewers to lean-in and be a part of the show -- providing information about the game (what character is on screen?); voting for the next segment (what game should I play next?); or, enabling viewers to manipulate the game itself (please drop me loot!).
We’re looking for a product manager to help us build solutions that educate, enable and empower our Developers to build amazing apps for live streaming. You’ll work across the entire company to create features that delight our customers -- from discovery and awareness of our products to everyday use and support. Reporting to a Senior PM, you’ll act in both supportive and leadership roles. Some projects in flight need further requirements gathering and testing, whereas others need customer validation and requirements specified to begin work. A PM with an entrepreneurial mindset will thrive in this role, as many customer needs will be vaguely defined and require innovative thinking to bring the right ideas to market. Developer Experience is a unique organization within Twitch that serves businesses and consumers, and considering scalability of solutions and processes is critical to success.
Joining our team will put you in the driver's seat for creating and executing the vision and strategy for interactive experiences on all platforms where Twitch is available. You love working with people and can collaborate across many internal teams to move mountains and drive alignment on big objectives. You know how to turn customer problems into product opportunities and can craft and execute on an impactful product roadmap that millions of viewers on Twitch will depend on every day. You have a passion for and history of ideating, building, delivering, and supporting high quality, delightful user experiences that reach a broad and diverse base of customers.
