A major player in television entertainment is embracing the future and taking a big swing by launching a subscription driven, direct-to-consumer OTT offering that’s going to be every horror genre junky’s fantasy and they need a VP of Tech to build it.
Our client is a forward-thinking major media player with the goal to build a dominant direct to consumer video platform for the horror genre that’s totally unique to the OTT experience. You’ll be partnered with the VP of Product to envision and build the end to end product including pieces of the puzzle such as ingestion, content management, storage, transcoding, digital rights management, payments, packaging and distribution.
Architecting a solution that will work across web and other Internet platforms including mobile, gaming, Apple TV is your domain.
This is going to be your show. When to build and when to partner is your determination. Ensuring a best in class experience that can quickly scale and and has the flexibility to grow with new devices as they arrive in the video ecosystem is your territory.
They’re looking to you for best practices around development. It’s a tremendous opportunity to step in at a very early stage to shape not only the product, but also your team and the culture of this startup within a major player. You will build out a development team capable of making your vision a reality and you will lead, mentor and motivate.
This is a startup will sit under a large corporate umbrella that is completely excited and stands behind this project. As the leader and a key senior member of the team who will be involved from the beginning this is a scary good opportunity.
What makes you ideal for this role is the fact that this isn’t your first rodeo when it comes to architecting and building an end to end video experience. Whether it was building one of the many successful (or failed) consumer-focused video upstarts or building the TVE authenticated property for a traditional media company, you understand what it takes and all that’s involved.
Not only can you see the big picture and understand how to assemble the parts, you are also a capable leader.
In addition to your domain knowledge, you know how to structure and staff the technical team required to transform the vision into live and thriving code. You know what needs to be built and how you need to build it. Developers respect you and follow you because they know you are the real deal. You are all about results and have the projects and products to show for it.
While you will be working for a major television network, this team is being created and operated as a stand alone, free and clear of the bureaucracy and legacy technology horror that can be associated with major media companies.
This is a dream opportunity to come in and build the ideal video solution from scratch. So pinch yourself and perk up, we want to hear from you.
