    Prime Video is changing the way millions of customers interact with video content. Amazon believes so deeply in the mission of streaming Video that we've launched our own studio to create original and exclusive content and engaged with the top professional sports leagues around the world like the NFL and the Premier League to deliver compelling live content to Prime members. The Prime Video team is seeking a Technical Program Manager to own and drive delivery for high-impact programs in the core technology team to help users worldwide to enjoy live events, movies and TV shows on mobile devices, living room devices, and the web. As part of this role, you’ll have the opportunity to work across many groups within and outside Prime Video while getting deep insights into our entire business.

    The Principal TPM role requires excellent leadership skills, strategic thinking, strong technical expertise, the ability to partner effectively across teams within and outside of Amazon, and the ability to manage high-impact projects. As a member of the team, you’ll need to have the ability to understand the fundamentals of the latest video technology and what it takes to launch large scale video services and features that involve multiple teams within and outside of Prime Video. You will drive future technical solutions that will impact how we run Prime Video worldwide. In addition to this, you’ll need to be able to influence and deliver new features and exceptional user experiences across multiple platforms including mobile, living room devices, Fire TV, Alexa, and the web. You will also need to frequently engage business, product and technology leaders and be a strong advocate for our customers. We're a high energy, fast growth business excited to have the opportunity to shape how video is consumed for years to come.
