    Sr Software Development Manager – Prime Video
    Are you interested in shaping the future of movies, television, and digital video? Do you want to define the next generation of how and what Amazon customers are watching? We have recently launched Video Central, a new platform that enables content providers worldwide, from independent filmmakers to the largest studios, self-service tooling and automation to easily manage and make their content available to Amazon customers globally, including millions of Prime members. Video Central provides the key foundation for Prime Videos to truly scale content acquisition and ingestion globally. We are growing quickly and need your passion, innovative ideas, and creativity to help continue to deliver on our ambitious goals.

    Content partners on Amazon Video vary from independent filmmakers to global major motion picture and TV studios who manage their deliveries, metadata, assets, and business performance with Video Central. The systems, applications, and APIs that support content providers operate at a large scale, must be highly available and work on increasingly diverse systems securely.
    We are looking for a creative, technical and hands-on manager to take the Video Central platform and systems we are building to the next level. This is a strategic role in an organization that is critical for the Prime Video global strategy. You will lead the engineering efforts that are pioneering new ways to work with major studios globally on delivering assets and metadata, driving customer engagement, and managing their day-to-day business with Prime Video. You will be able to balance technical leadership with strong business judgement to make the right decisions about technology choices to innovate rapidly. Our team is known for delivering quality at speed and enjoy making an impact measured in days rather than years.
    Along with developing and managing a team of technical managers, you will work across teams to influence other areas of the Prime Video ecosystem, lead engineering work that can be leveraged across broader Amazon teams, and will partner with other technical leaders efforts to solve many difficult problems across multiple teams. You'll work also directly with senior business leaders to set and achieve aggressive goals.
