Product Manager, Media Platform and Live Infrastructure
Who We Are:
Twitter is the best place to stay informed about what’s happening. Photos, GIFs, and videos (on demand + live) all play an important role in supporting the global conversation.
We provide the back end services that power all media on Twitter. We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead the vision, product strategy and execution for our Media Platform and Live Infrastructure teams.

- Tune our product strategy and operations to make sure we are delivering a platform that’s easy for our customer teams to build on.
- Efficiently upload/ingest all types of media (Live, Video on demand, gifs and images)
- Tune our media encoding/transcoding pipelines for the optimal balance of visual quality, data usage and playback performance
- Develop support for a broad set of content protection and rights management features
- Optimize integrations/coverage with CDNs to provide the most stable and performant media distribution
- Ensure media is classified to support Twitter’s content health policies
- Drive processes to ensure platform services conform to data privacy regulations
- Deliver public API solutions for media upload/ingest by 3rd party developers
As such, you will:

- Collaborate with both consumer, infrastructure and revenue teams to measure and improve the impact of these services and be able to explain why in a clear, accessible way.

- You embrace a growth mindset and a servant leadership approach to product management
- You’re able to simplify and present technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders to explain impact and drive buy-in
- You’re data-driven and detail-oriented with strong analytical abilities
- You’re a clear and effective communicator, both in person and in writing
- You’re comfortable and experienced with leading through influence rather than authority
- You’re driven to get things done with a focus on impact and a growth mindset
