Job Description:

The part you’ll play and preparation for your role.
Hulu is the leading premium streaming service offering live and on-demand TV and movies, with and without commercials, both in and outside the home. Operating at the intersection of entertainment and technology, Hulu has a unique opportunity to be the number one choice for TV. We captivate and connect viewers with the stories they love, and we're looking for people who are passionate about redefining TV through innovation, unconventional thinking, and embracing fun. Join us and see what Hulugan life is all about.

SUMMARY
Hulu’s Content Acquisition team is seeking a Content Acquisition Manager who will be an exceptional addition to our TV content team. As a Content Acquisition Manager, you will participate in all stages of our content acquisition process - defining our programming strategy through rigorous analysis of data, sourcing and vetting content opportunities, negotiating directly with US-based studios, and working cross-functionally to amplify our existing content portfolio. This role demands someone who can blend quantitative output with a strong subjective filter to create impactful insights, dynamic interpersonal skills, and the ability to effectively drive change - all at a breakneck pace.

WHAT YOU'LL DO
  • Drive the formulation and communication of our content strategy internally and externally, using data to drive key business decisions and optimize our content portfolio
  • Track and evaluate content, both off-Hulu for potential licensing opportunities and on-Hulu for performance analysis, and work collaboratively with our Finance team to value content opportunities
  • Build models and presentations supporting these content strategies and deal proposals
  • Own strategic relationships with content partners and negotiate licensing deals
  • Operationalize deals, managing all aspects of deal close and on-going deal management, including collaboration with Marketing, Product, PR, Finance, and Legal to ensure deal parameters of our negotiated deals are communicated and executed
  • Complete long term and ad-hoc projects, including competitive analysis, to support the strategy of the Content Acquisition TV team and Hulu overall

Job Requirements:

WHAT TO BRING
  • 5+ years of relevant work experience at a major media company or a top tier consulting firm / investment bank
  • "Graduate-level" skill in quantitative analysis and data-driven storytelling
  • Excellent communication skills to disseminate information to relevant stakeholders and drive consensus building
  • Phenomenal business judgment, proven strategic thinking, and problem solving skills
  • Understanding of multicultural content and how to serve diverse audiences
  • Ability to thrive in an evolving and fast-paced environment, prioritizing and balancing multiple projects concurrently
  • Finely-honed sense of humor and willingness to participate in lively debates

NICE-TO-HAVES
  • Hands-on experience in the media industry, especially one that brought you into contact with strategy and/or deal making, with an understanding of how the industry is changing and why
  • Proficiency in a foreign language
  • MBA preferred
