The purpose of this role is to provide a complete understanding of the consumer to TWDC and specifically how this relates to consumption of media and content across different platforms

Media platforms includes owned platforms (Disney Channels, Disney.xx, Disney apps, Disney Life), and third party platforms (e.g. VOD platforms, EST platforms, Youtube, Facebook) amongst others.

The individual will need to design new approaches to data, rather than build the technical solutions supporting them, but must be knowledgeable enough about technical tools in order to recommend solutions and project manage them.
