Résumé du poste:

On any given day at Disney Entertainment & ESPN Technology, we’re reimagining ways to create magical viewing experiences for the world’s most beloved stories while also redefining Disney’s media business for the future. Whether that’s evolving our streaming and digital products in new and immersive ways, powering worldwide advertising and distribution to enhance flexibility and efficiency, or delivering Disney’s unmatched entertainment and sports content, every day is a moment to make a difference to partners and to hundreds of millions of people around the world.

  • Building the future of Disney’s media business: DE&E Technologists are designing and building the infrastructure that will power Disney’s media, advertising, and distribution businesses for years to come.

  • Reach & Scale: The products and platforms this group builds and operates delight millions of consumers every minute of every day – from Disney+ and Hulu, to ABC News and Entertainment, to ESPN and ESPN+, and much more.

  • Innovation: We develop and implement groundbreaking products and techniques that shape industry norms and enhance how audiences experience sports, entertainment & news.

The Commerce, Growth & Identity (CGI) team is dedicated to three business-critical areas at Disney that will help transform its media business. They create seamless user experiences for consumers who can choose from a wide range of subscription plans, enabling more choice and flexibility. The CGI team is also focused on building innovative and pioneering capabilities that will drive subscriptions, engagement, and monetization across Disney’s streaming and digital products.

At Disney Entertainment, we are experiencing dramatic growth, reaching 225M total subscriptions globally across our streaming product portfolio.

In this highly impactful role, you’ll be providing leadership to a cross-functional team of engineers, data scientists, and other specialists.

The payments platform at Disney Entertainment has experienced tremendous growth - supporting over 80 countries and 20+ currencies. Yet, we’re still early on our mission to provide entertainment around the world and project significant growth ahead. We’re looking for a leader with an entrepreneurial spirit, who will take this growth ahead by embracing unconventional thinking and providing bigger and better ideas. Being part of a driven and enthusiastic team of growing products and product managers, you will get to make a direct material impact on the future of The Walt Disney Company.
