About the Position
Twitch enables content creators to live-stream content to their communities across the globe. Our suite of advertising products help creators, brands, and sponsors accelerate the growth and engagement of their communities. On the Advertising Data team, you’ll be part of a talented, passionate, and customer-obsessed team working to prove Twitch is the best advertising platform for creators and advertisers alike.
Twitch is seeking technical program managers with the curiosity, drive, and ingenuity to own the delivery of massively scalable services, APIs, and data processing pipelines that support our advertising business. Together, these systems make up the single source of truth for Twitch advertising, empowering creators, advertisers, and internal Twitch teams with the data and insights they need to grow.
The ideal contributor should have experience innovating ways to maintain high velocity delivery against product roadmaps. You will work across teams and organizations, owning (not just “managing”) program delivery through the entire development lifecycle. You will be a key contributor to technical design and architecture, calling out risks that others don’t see. Your communication across all dimensions of the company, from senior executives to junior engineers, should be accurate, efficient, and comprehensive.
As the leader in live-streaming, Twitch is home to unique opportunities and challenges in the advertising space, and the Ad Data team sits at the intersection. If you’re excited about joining our team and having an outsize impact on Twitch and its creators, come work with us!
