Engineering Manager - Video Platform

SF
AWS
Twitch delivers over 6 billion hours of video today.  We have one of the largest live video distribution networks in the world and a VOD delivery platform.  At Twitch we are working on building a platform to usher in the next few billions of hours of video to be delivered. We believe video delivery is in its infancy and as we look to the horizon, we want to expand our video offerings to customers and partners beyond Twitch.  Our ultimate goal is take our video platform offering and offer a cloud based service in AWS.
The engineering team is rapidly expanding to keep up with the demands of our broadcasters and partners and we need an engineering leader to help grow, mentor and hire engineers. We need engineering leaders that are are equally communicative and equally technical.  You will work closely with individual contributors on your team, interact with manager peers, and help drive executive reviews of projects.
We believe video services as a whole in AWS are just getting started.  This is an amazing opportunity to get in on a the ground floor within an existing and strong video business.
