In this episode, we talk with Sam Chen, Senior Product Manager for Subscriptions at Twitch, about how he went from working in the trenches with Frank for anime conventions to helping oversee the product pipeline at Amazon and then for one of the most well-known and popular livestreaming platforms in Twitch. We talk turkey about what exactly it means to implement products for Twitch such as gift subscriptions, tiers, emotes, and more, how Sam’s own livestreaming experiences and regular interactions with Twitch streamers drive his product management philosophies, and where he thinks Twitch and its community is going when it comes to content creation.
