So today was my last day at comScore Networks. AOL contacted me out of the blue back in April. I had placed a resume on the TimeWarner career site in January and apparently had not disabled it so it was still active in their system. A recruiter found it in a search and gave me a call. At first I was hesitant to explore the opportunity, but figured it couldn't hurt to at least read the job description (below). So I had her send it over and that was that - it is the perfect job for me, combining my love/fascination with digital media and my experience with product management. So after six interviews (2 phone and 4 onsite) they offered me the job, and I handed in my notice to comScore. So since today was my last day I bailed out early to go work on the deer fence. Actually I went in late cuz I had to go by DeerBusters to pick up a new hog ring tool. In fact I think I was only there for about 20 minutes... :)
So I made it out to the vineyard around 2 and got right to work on the netting. Amazing what a difference the new hog ring tool made (since it actually worked...) Now I was on a roll. Got two lengths (165') of netting installed and ran another section of impact wires. So figure since I have tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday to work on this fence I ought to be able to make a lot of progress!
Here's the job description:
AOL has embarked on a business strategy to be the #1 provider of premium services to the Internet at large. This initiative is the growth engine of the company and our portfolio of media services will be leading this growth. The Digital Media Services (DMS) group is responsible for premium music, video and photo services. The Media Service Program Director will be responsible for implementing all DMS services in a 2’ experience on a PC. 2’ stands for the distance someone interacts with the service, so it is a euphemism for the user interface on the PC. There are other Program Directors that manage implementations for mobile and living room implementations, 1’ and 10’ respectively. Specifically, this person will be responsible for determining the appropriate features, design, and content programming for these 2’ service experiences. This person will then plan a process for evaluating internal and external options for implementing the 2’ service experiences and manage the implementations working in concert with other AOL support and stakeholder teams. This person will work closely with the business owners of the DMS services on all business and product strategy and develop service and implementation roadmaps. This person will manage internal and external partner relationships for these service implementations. This person will manage a team of Program Managers to execute these implementations. The ideal candidate will have 8+ years experience in the media and Internet industries. A firm feel for business and product strategy coupled with a pragmatic approach to execute initiatives will be required. Experience managing 3rd party partnerships is desired. An MBA is a plus but not required.
