Position Overview:
Peacock is looking for a versatile product leader to run a team of product managers and drive execution, business results and future vision for content discovery and personalization. This role will report to the SVP of Product and UX. The ideal candidate will be highly strategic, curious and collaborative, and be ready to challenge the status quo.

    • Tiering: Ensure the right balance of AVOD and SVOD throughout content discovery to maximize customer lifetime value.
  • Manage, mentor and motivate a growing team of product managers focused on the above areas.
  • Create and deliver winning executive presentations that explain product vision, features and KPIs for the wider Peacock organization and manage senior stakeholder expectations.
