The Media Team at Twitter works directly with high profile users on the platform, and partners with media companies to enrich traditional media with Twitter content, data and technology. We work across the spectrum: from @cnn to @selenagomez, from @50cent to @FCBarcelona, from @PerezHilton to @pontifex.

The Media Program Manager will work cross-functionally within Twitter, and often with third parties, to manage and coordinate high-value programs and activities. You'll be expected to define, scope and deliver projects from events such as #Oscars to launches like #Music, to complex custom integrations such as the Nielsen Twitter TV Rating. These projects are most often unique, pioneering and highly visible in the industry.

Delivering positive project outcomes for Twitter and the Twitter Media team, meeting the project goals on time and within budget
Deriving analytics around the effectiveness of initiatives in driving Twitter Media's goals
Feedback from project stakeholders on quality and usefulness of communications
Increasing in efficiency over time; doing more with less through best practices and optimizations
Manage projects from start to finish, including stakeholder expectations and project risks. Track issues and develop mitigation and contingency plans.
Deal with complex problems effectively by managing internal relationships, cross functional teams, and collision management across initiatives that span Twitter.
Synthesize and present recommendations to senior leadership based on emerging business or technical opportunities/challenges.
Produce and maintain core project artifacts including schedules, status reports and surrounding documentation. Manage the expectations of all stakeholders through transparent and proactive status reports and other communications.
Participate in new business opportunities; develop prospective proposals and scopes of work
Develop a scalable strategy and organizational recommendations for execution of high-value engagements
Keep management, partners and others informed of program status and ensure that project participants have easy access to information that is useful to them.
Serve as the primary contact for third-party vendors, identifying and documenting integration points and dependencies
Coordinate large cross-functional teams including legal, analytics, support, design, comms, engineering and product
Define and document best practices, and contribute to company knowledge sharing effort
Experience working cross-functionally on deadline, delivering custom complex projects
An ability to communicate and work effectively across multiple internal disciplines
