Our Ellation Technology Platform helps us scale to serve millions of users across the globe, and we are looking to expand our team of world-class engineers, so we can continue to innovate and offer rock-solid reliability to our content partners. You are a full-stack engineer and a professional with strong technical design principles, not a hacker. You understand the requirements and think before you code, adhere to principles of abstraction and best practices in API design, and are as cognizant of the limitations in what you build as you are of your capabilities. You are familiar with many technologies and can confidently pick the right tool for the job at hand.
We’re looking for a seasoned Program Manager to join our team in San Francisco. Our offices in San Francisco, Tokyo, and Chișinău develop the product, design, engineering, marketing and content for Crunchyroll and VRV -- we are media and technology experts, and we lead with our digital-first DNA to create experiences for our passionate communities.
The ideal candidate has a strong software program management background, has demonstrated the ability to deliver software solutions aligned with company strategic goals and product roadmap, has experience managing cross-project dependencies while mitigating risks, and is capable of defining and tracking project timelines while providing progress reports to the executive team and the rest of the organization.
