Description

The producer sits at the heart of the App Store, working cross functionally to coordinate and deliver deliver daily engaging stories to our customers via the Today tab. Our projects use innovative storytelling and graphics to highlight some of the most innovative apps and games being developed today. Working closely with App Store teams to identify and understand their priorities, the producer maps out the execution plan from concept to completion. The producer creates, articulates and tracks deliverables, timelines, dependencies and launch plans, regularly providing updates to global teams and leadership. This role will coordinate across a wide range of worldwide teams (including design, editorial, video, marketing, content programming, operations, and business affairs) to ensure that projects are completed on time and adhere to the highest standards.
