Amazon Advertising operates at the intersection of e-Commerce and Advertising, offering a rich array of digital and video advertising solutions with the goal of helping our customers find and discover anything they want to buy. We help advertisers reach Amazon customers across our owned and operated sites, on other high-quality sites across the web, and on millions of Kindles, tablets, and mobile devices. We start with the customer and work backwards in everything we do, including Advertising. If you’re interested in joining a rapidly growing team working to build a unique, world-class advertising group with a relentless focus on the customer, you’ve come to the right place!

Our team’s mandate is to be customer obsessed building brands with video content creation programs using our third-party partnerships and in-house video teams. Our current program(s) are defining and delivering full video creation capabilities for advertisers. This Producer will be responsible for managing and evolving brand production mechanisms and processes including scorecards, ‘creative bars’ and creative best practices based on Amazon specific requirements to help emerging advertisers reach new customers with video in Europe.

This will include searching for new third-party partners and overseeing all aspects of production and post production at scale, with both first and third-party partners. Ensuring each video project is completed on time, within budget and compliant with our policies in an effective and efficient manner is key. This includes a deep understanding of multiple production, media management and post production pipelines (including attendance of kick-off-calls, briefs, concepts, and feedback related to editorial post-production, visual effects, audio mixing, finishing, motion graphic design and animation).

As the team and programs develop, the Producer will be asked to take on Creative Direction elements of projects. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. This means anticipating bottlenecks, making tradeoffs and balancing the needs of various key stakeholders. Analytical abilities are necessary to track adoption, create mechanisms to measure success, and serve as the “go-to” resource for all technical and creative video specifics.

Our team’s mandate is to build scalable brand video production programs using our third-party partnerships and in-house video teams.

· Evolve and develop best practices for video creation services at scale in emerging markets, including but not limited to Europe and US
· Translate voice of the customer feedback into production, program and product requirements
· Collaborate with stakeholders across product, sales, finance, services and operations teams
· Work cross-functionally to manage bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make trade-offs, balance the business needs versus technical constraints, and maximize business benefit while building great customer experiences
· Contribute to global roadmap, vision, metrics, goals and performance of video programs and represent in business reviews and other meetings
· Develop mechanisms to eventually automate repeat tasks related to third-party matching
· Expand video localization and transcreation capabilities with first and third-party partners, while uncovering and developing new forms of video production types, styles and methods at scale for global audiences
