The Digital, Advertising, and Corporate Development Finance organization leads the finance function for some of the most dynamic and rapidly growing businesses within Amazon. We support the Advertising, Digital Video, and Digital Music teams. Our mission is to help the businesses achieve their goals while ensuring we invest in programs that provide the best returns. We do this by working side by side with the businesses daily, helping them solve their most important challenges, through action-oriented analysis/reporting, and by driving value-add initiatives. Inherent in every project we drive, report we deliver, or decision we support is unyielding controllership. Some of the businesses we support include:
- The Advertising team continues to push the boundaries on the way companies advertise on Amazon. Our WW Advertising program consists of Performance Advertising, Display Advertising and Video Advertising segments. They create experiences that enhance the customer experience as well as achieve our advertisers' goals, building solutions for third-party advertisers that leverage Kindle devices, Mobile devices, Video, and Display Ads. We partner with sponsors and advertisers to create compelling interactive ads and branding experiences both locally and globally.
- The Digital Video team continues to innovate the way video content is offered to our customers. We provide a premium entertainment service that offers customers the greatest choices in what to watch, and how to watch it, which includes critically acclaimed originals as well as premium library content. Amazon Prime members get unlimited access to thousands of movies and TV shows, including blockbuster movies and popular TV shows, plus award-winning Amazon Original Series and movies from Amazon Studios. Amazon Originals include hits like Transparent, The Man in the High Castle, Chi-Raq, and kids’ series Tumble Leaf. Prime members can also add subscriptions to premium channels like HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ and dozens more to their memberships. While all Amazon customers have on-demand access to rent or own hundreds of thousands of titles, including new-release movies and current TV shows.
- The Digital Music team strives to deliver a personalized and seamless music experience for our customers. We offer a premium listening experience through our services, Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Music, and the digital music store. We want to help our customers discover up-and-coming artists, while also having access to their favorite established musicians.
- Amazon’s Corporate Development Finance group contains the corporate development teams that perform strategic acquisitions and investments, as well as supporting and emerging businesses. Because of the rapid changes that come with launching emerging businesses, the makeup of Corporate Development will change more quickly over time than other businesses.
