Job Summary:

We seek an enthusiastic and experienced product manager to lead our efforts to create the best media experience in the world. Reporting to the Director, Media Product in San Francisco, and part of the rapidly growing Media Product team, the job location is San Francisco or New York.

You’ll define and execute product roadmaps for critical-path platform features supporting an ideal viewing experience by ensuring delivery of the best media for each viewer.
