Join the team that’s building the Voice UI of the future for video devices and services like Fire TV, Echo Show, Xbox, Roku, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Prime Video, and many more. We are building the platform that will allow ANY video device or service (1st or 3rd party) to bring the power of voice to their customers to discover and enjoy the content they love every day. And we’re just getting started!

We are looking for an experienced, creative, visionary, and customer-centric Sr. Product Manager to join our team. In this role, you will help define and champion the vision for a key new area of focus for the Alexa Video team.

As a Sr. Product Manager for Alexa Video, you will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of cutting-edge products and services.

In this role, you will be on point to inform and guide technical, product, design investments, driving requirements back to the engineering team to jointly deliver value to customers and developers alike.

Key Responsibilities:
* Lead the definition and execution strategy for a critical new product area within Alexa Video to help move the Alexa Entertaiment vision forward.
* Work with internal experts, quantitative and qualitative data, to develop documents articulating the aspirational vision and long to near term roadmap implications.

* Work closely with multiple engineering teams and designers to deliver results to customers
