• Operationalize deals, managing all aspects of deal close and on-going deal management, including collaboration with Marketing, Product, PR, Finance, and Legal to ensure deal parameters of our negotiated deals are communicated and executed
• Complete long term and ad-hoc projects, including competitive analysis, to support the strategy of the Content Acquisition TV team and Hulu overall

• 5+ years of relevant work experience at a major media company or a top tier consulting firm / investment bank

• Phenomenal business judgment, proven strategic thinking, and problem solving skills
• Understanding of multicultural content and how to serve diverse audiences
• Ability to thrive in an evolving and fast-paced environment, prioritizing and balancing multiple projects concurrently
• Finely-honed sense of humor and willingness to participate in lively debates
