Job Description

Are you interested in shaping the future of movies and television?

Do you want to define the next generation of how and what Amazon customers are watching? Prime Video, one of the leading digital video services on the Internet today, and IMDb TV, Amazon's free, ad-supported streaming video channel, are changing the way millions of people around the world enjoy content. Prime Video, now available in more than 240 countries and territories, offers customers the broadest selection of any on-demand video service, including original programming such as our critically-acclaimed series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, and The Boys; Local Originals programming such as the UK's The Grand Tour, Spain's El Cid, France's Love Island, and India's Family Man; and movies like Late Night and All In: The Fight for Democracy. IMDb TV, launched in 2019, enables customers to watch hit TV shows, top Hollywood movies, and more without purchasing a subscription. Our IMDb TV Originals program just kicked off with the launch of Alex Rider, and there is much more to come.
