IMDb is the largest entertainment property in the world. With billions of pageviews, over 130 million mobile downloads, and 250 million unique users a month, we are the most authoritative source of movie, TV, and celebrity content.
We have started a brand new team focused on delivering Awards and Events experiences for IMDb’s web and mobile platforms. As an early member of this team, you’ll create and deliver new user experiences from the ground up. Our charter is to be both a technology incubator for new products within IMDb, and to deliver innovative and exciting experiences that engage users around the exciting and glamorous Hollywood events that you’ve seen online and on TV.
You will need to have an established background in developing customer-facing experiences, a strong technical ability, great communication skills, a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment, high creativity, great analytical reasoning skills, and, of course a passion for movies and TV.
You'll work on highly scaled back-end services and cutting edge client-side software. You will develop services that run on Amazon’s cloud computing infrastructure (AWS) and have opportunities to interact with teams across Amazon.
You must be passionate about quality, consistency, maintainability, performance, security and all the other things that make great software great. You will own the design and implementation of major deliverables end-to-end. You will collaborate with UX designers, product managers, content editors, and partner teams, necessitating a comfort-level with ambiguity and a desire to create, iterate and improve.
A love of movies is suggested, but not required; be prepared to be surrounded by debates about the best Hitchcock film ever made and discussions about what might happen this season on Game Of Thrones. As a separately operated subsidiary of Amazon.com, we offer the benefits and stability of a Fortune 100 company, combined with engaging, close-knit, results-focused environment of a small company. It's the best of both worlds.
