Job Summary:

The new hire (Project Manager; New Initiative Operations) will be expected to work with the Director, BD Operations & Strategy and their respective team in managing new content business ventures and partnerships for Marvel. As many of these new businesses will not be systemized and formalized, it will be the responsibility of the new hire and their team to work across LOBs, and where necessary, with Disney, in creating best practices that lead to operational successes. Much of the day-to-day of the new hire will be working closely with and managing 3rd party partners to launch new opportunities for Marvel. As most of these new businesses will involve the creation of Marvel content, the new hire must have some level of content creation experience and must be an avid content consumer.
In addition to managing a few new Marvel businesses and partnerships, it is the responsibility of the new hire to manage inbound Disney partnerships that involve Marvel IP. The new hire will serve as a proxy for Disney deals, managing Marvel guardrails, needs and approvals.
As the development of these new businesses will be constantly evolving, the new hire must be a nimble, ultra-organized, out-of-the-box thinker and problem solver who is quick to find potential solutions instead of dwelling on the problems.


  • Manage new Marvel business opportunities and 3rd party partnerships
  • Work closely with creative teams on the development of new Marvel content, ensuring all deadlines are met and marketing beats are hit
  • Interface and collaborate with both Marvel and Disney LOBs in support of 3rd party Marvel & Disney partnerships and opportunities
