Job Description

IMDb is the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. Our website and mobile apps are in the top 30 across all content verticals, and at over 130 million mobile user downloads, we are one of the largest mobile properties in the world.

With a catalog of hundreds of millions of Entertainment facts, we know about “almost” every movie or TV show ever made… but “almost” isn’t good enough, and we need your help! We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated Senior Technical Product Manager to build the systems, processes and infrastructure needed to fundamentally expand the depth and breadth of our worldwide Entertainment catalog. As the industry rapidly evolves, we need a senior leader to transform our systems to better connect with and inform our worldwide audience. Specifically, you will lead the team responsible for growing our catalog through the consolidation and aggregation of content from numerous worldwide entertainment partners. You will work cross-functionally to lead technical designs and requirements, and then collaborate with multiple teams across Amazon and IMDb to implement the new systems. You will define new and enhance existing systems, building personalized interfaces to keep our customers informed. You will leverage the power of our robust contributor base consisting of hundreds of thousands of worldwide users who will build and expand upon the foundation you will provide. Finally, you will work closely with senior leadership as we reimagine and expand IMDb’s worldwide presence.

This is a rare opportunity to become a key player within the team that provides the content that powers all of IMDb, which in turn sits at the intersection of entertainment, media, and technology within Amazon, the world’s most innovative and consumer-centric company.
