About the Position

The Video Platform team designs, builds, and maintains the core of the live, interactive Twitch experience: a cost-efficient, low-latency, high quality-of-service video pipeline. Serving 100+ million users every month, resulting in hundreds of millions of hours watched, Video Platform depends on the agile and accurate analysis of over 500 billion new data points every month. Analyzing this massive and diverse data set requires an advanced data platform capable of scaling to the ingestion, processing, storage, and retrieval needs of our operation. You will build the next generation data platform serving internal customers, and will help define a new data product that will serve thousands of external AWS customers.

As Director you will lead a team of talented Data Analysts and Data Engineers, and will define and execute your vision for the future of Video Platform’s data and analytics platform. Working with the AWS service toolset, your team will define and build our in-house data engineering and data analytics pipelines, allowing them to better serve both existing and new data consumers. You and your team will own widely communicating vital insights to a diverse set of stakeholders ranging from Twitch and AWS executives, product management, and engineers working on core services.

You are an experienced manager of data analysts, data scientists, and/or data engineers with a passion for building powerful tools that enable data exploration. As a data analyst or scientist, you are comfortable owning complex data exploration and knowledge generation tasks from start to finish. As a data engineer, you are comfortable building architectural roadmaps and owning large, diverse data stores. Creating alignment and communication across organizations and levels of experience comes easily.
