Shweta Jain joins Amazon Internet Services


MUMBAI: Former NDTV senior vice president of software solutions Shweta Jain has joined Amazon Internet Services as head of media and entertainment services for South Asia.

Amazon Internet Services is a local legal Indian entity that acts as a reseller for Amazon Web Service (AWS) in the country.

As head of the media and entertainment vertical at AWS India, Jain will work with media organisations helping them initiate/accelerate their cloud adoption for better efficiencies and scalability.

Jain has joined Amazon after a stint of more than 19 years with NDTV, where she worked closely with editorial and production teams.

“Super excited to join the AWSome India team of @Amazon Web Services, to head Media and Entertainment business across India and neighbouring countries. Joining AWS empowers my own belief in the power of cloud and the huge impact it can have on the media enterprises–big and small, traditional and contemporary,” Jain posted on her Linkedin profile.

“After a highly rewarding stint of nearly two decades at NDTV, where I enjoyed teaming up with many remarkably talented people doing some fantastic work, I’m now moving on to my next challenge,” she added.

Apart from her stint at NDTV, Jain was also the founder director of a digital business incubated at NDTV, managing the P&L of a B2B vertical publishing TV listings (EPG) of over 1000 channels to more than 50 platforms in India and abroad. She also founded UREQA, a content discovery and personalised recommendation app for Android.
