About Shameel Arafin
I work in media technology, specifically on streaming video, apps, platforms, CMS's and interactive storytelling — at scale.
Currently, I am Vice President, Product at Fortune Media, where I oversee product management and product development across web, mobile and video platforms. Working with the CTO and executive team, we are managing the digital transformation of a 90+ year old brand that is newly independent and billionaire-funded. We launched a subscription model, a new immersive video platform (Fortune On Demand), two mobile apps (iOS and Android). Following on the heels of that, we are building out a conference platform to support Fortune's conference business.
Prior to Fortune Media, I was Vice President of Engineering at ViewLift. We developed a platform for on-demand and live video streaming, across multiple devices categories (mobile, web, OTT). I managed multiple teams of dozens of engineers, in New York and India.
Before ViewLift, I led the technology teams for TIME, FORTUNE, MONEY, Health Magazine and a number of other brands, as Senior Director of Platform Engineering. Prior to Time Inc., I architected and built a video and interactive storytelling platform at MediaStorm, as lead developer.
Working with clients, design, product, marketing and editorial departments, my teams build scalable platforms for distributed content and unique, immersive, cinematic online narratives.
