About Amazon Music

Amazon Music is looking for a creative and organized Audio Content Manager that will own the end-to-end production and operations for Amazon Music's new listening experience, DJ Mode. The Audio Content Manager must have a strong Editorial sense for what makes a best in class listening experience for music fans, drawing on best practices from across the audio media spectrum, including podcasts as well as internet and terrestrial radio.

The Audio Content Manager will analyze usage reports and work with tech and content teams to adjust features and content as needed, as well as perform quality assurance work in partnership with those tech teams to ensure content is appropriately configured for production deployments, content updates and fixes.

Everyone on our team has a meaningful impact on product features, new directions in music streaming, and customer engagement. We are looking for new team members across a variety of job functions including software engineering/development, marketing, design, ops and more. Come join us as we make history by launching exciting new projects in the coming year.
Our team is focused on building a personalized, curated, and seamless music experience. We want to help our customers discover up-and-coming artists, while also having access to their favorite established musicians. We build systems that are distributed on a large scale, spanning our music apps, web player, and voice-forward audio engagement on mobile and Amazon Echo devices, powered by Alexa to support our customer base. Amazon Music offerings are available in countries around the world, and our applications support our mission of delivering music to customers in new and exciting ways that enhance their day-to-day lives.
