About Us

Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions.

Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate, learn, and grow their personal interests and passions. We’re always live at Twitch. Stay up to date on all things Twitch on LinkedIn , Twitter and on our Blog .

About the Role

Amazon Interactive Video Service (IVS) is an AWS service that allows developers to easily use the low-latency highly -distributed live video platform that powers Twitch in their own applications. The Video Clients team is hiring an Engineering Manager to build a new video playback team focused on adapting the IVS web video player to meet the needs of Twitch's Living Room platforms—streaming devices, game consoles, smart TVs. You will build support for playback of live, video on-demand, and digital rights management (DRM) protected content on these platforms, and your team's contributions will impact not only Twitch, but IVS customers and their audiences as well.

You will experience the best of both worlds while working on a brand new AWS service at Twitch— you will be immersed in Twitch's creator-first culture and enjoy our perks while having access to the resources of a growing business. Your work will improve Twitch, the largest live video entertainment platform in the world with over 1 trillion minutes of content watched in 2020, and help set the direction of a rapidly evolving AWS service.

The Video Clients team has the highest visibility within Twitch's video organization and delivering high-quality experiences on Living Room platforms is essential for Twitch's future. You will report to the Senior Engineering Manager of Video Clients and collaborate directly with senior leadership in multiple organizations, and your work will define how Twitch should internally consume the IVS service.
