CNN+ will launch in Q1 2022, bringing exciting new premium CNN streaming content directly to CNN superfans. The 10-foot viewing experience is a critical part of the CNN+ product offering.
As Director of Engineering, CNN+ 10-foot Devices, you will be responsible for recruiting, building, and leading several engineering teams. These teams will be focused on developing world-class connected TV and set-top box streaming video applications, across an ever-growing number of devices and platforms, in order to bring CNN+ to our users!
At WarnerMedia, we care deeply about our team culture and values. As a Director of Engineering, one of your primary responsibilities will be to cultivate and advance that culture, and build teams that do the same. We value positivity and inclusion. We want everyone to enjoy coming to work every day, and we want every person’s voice to be heard. We organize ourselves cross-functionally, and empower teams to operate autonomously, but not in isolation. We recognize that business, product, and technical requirements change over time, and strive to work iteratively to meet those changes. We expect engineering teams to effectively manage technical debt, and make good tradeoffs between moving fast now and being able to move fast in the future. If you share these values, and are excited about the idea of building teams that embrace them, you’ll be a great fit for this role!
In addition to building teams, we’ll be asking you to oversee the development of world-class digital media applications on 10-foot devices. To be successful in this role, you’ll need excellent communication skills, and the ability to navigate a wide range of contexts - from code reviewing a bug fix, to untangling dependencies between multiple engineering teams, to updating executive leadership on progress towards long term roadmaps. You’ll also be responsible for defining roadmaps, and ensuring that your teams have the context, support, and processes they need in order to make predictable progress towards those goals. If you have experience in setting teams up for success, and helping them stay on that path over time, this is a great opportunity to put that experience to work on a high profile, impactful, and rapidly growing product area within CNN+.
