Job Description

Twitch delivers over 6 billion hours of video per year today. We have one of the largest live video distribution networks in the world and a growing VOD delivery platform. At Twitch we are working on building a platform to usher in the next few billions of hours of video to be delivered. We believe video delivery is in its infancy and as we look to the horizon, we want to expand our video offerings to customers and partners beyond Twitch. Our ultimate goal is take our video platform offering and offer a cloud based service in AWS.

As a technical program manager for this service, you will join us in preparing our video platform for external customers.

This position is a rare opportunity within Twitch and AWS to help define the next generation of video platforms. An ideal candidate will bring both deep technical and program management leadership expertise, strong business acumen and judgment, and the strong desire to bring clarity to ambiguity.
