About the Role
The Video Platform is building the future of interactive video to serve both Twitch.tv and external AWS developers through our recently launched AWS offering, the Amazon Interactive Video Service (IVS). We create the cutting-edge of video technology by investing in next-generation video codecs, reducing latency, and improving QoS. Amazon IVS provides over 1 trillion minutes of video in 2020 over one of the largest live video distribution networks in the world. We also need to build our video platform to be more efficient, adaptive, and responsive to meet the level of delivery set by AWS.
Reporting to the Director of Program Management, the Principal Technical Program Manager for the Video Platform, you will guide both strategy and tactical decision-making to achieve complex cross-team programs. You will need to work with engineering to accomplish important technical projects such as a dynamic real-time reservation system for video bandwidth or estimating system capacity use of millions of viewers.
You will be in a rare opportunity within Twitch and AWS to help determine the next generation of video platforms. You will bring both deep technical and program management leadership expertise, provenbusiness acumen and judgment, and the desire to bring clarity to ambiguity.
