Philipe Casarotte Sr. Manager, Product Development @ NBCUniversal

I thrive in an environment where I can define product strategy, establish roadmaps, and build teams that deliver successful products.

People, Processes, and Products. I believe you need to account for people first, your users, understand the job they are trying to do, processes and workflows, and then finally focus on solving their problem, the actual product.

Currently, I am one of the Product and Engineering leads at NBCUniversal, within the Digital Content Distribution division. Our team partners with internal and external stakeholders, such as Xfinity, Spectrum, AT&T, YoutubeTV, and Hulu, to deliver top-grade experiences to our viewers. I am honored to be nominated as one of eight "managers worth watching" across the company that will take part in the next CONNECT leadership career path at NBCUniversal. CONNECT is a program that brings together managers from multiple divisions for synergy and strategic alignment across the broader organization.

Previous Experiences

My diverse background includes roles in client relations, project management, front- and back-end development, UX/UI and digital strategy. I enjoy collaborating with people from all disciplines to produce creative digital products.

Previous responsibilities include product strategy and launch of a viral video eCommerce platform with JukinMedia.com, as well as oversight of PMO Operations. I also lead product strategy at DBurns for a variety of different clients and industries, including Health & Fitness (FighterDiet.com), FinTech (Sunbit), Food & Beverage (Beckmen Vineyards), Fashion & Design (Anine Bing and Bijan) amongst others.

At Jukin Media we wanted to crack the code of videos and the reason why we all love watching them. I worked alongside stakeholders, and engineers in product improvements, user interviews, data analyses/modeling, and designing unique user experiences to our internal and externals audiences.

At DBurns, I guided clients in all aspects of their web development project from the initial strategy to the project management. I strategized end-to-end launch plans for clients' products and services.

I've also previously worked as an IT analyst at Sumitomo Corporation, a global Japanese trading company. I was also a graphic designer and software engineer for one of Brazil's largest newspapers, O Estado de S. Paulo, “the Estadão.” There, I helped to develop an automation software which was later sold to top-tier Brazilian universities such as Fundação Getulio Vargas do Rio de Janeiro.

Education and Awards

I've taught web development for two universities, Serviço Nacional de Aprendizagem Comercial and Faculdade Santa Marcelina, and I'm honored that my work has won The Communicator, Davey, and W3 awards. I hold a B.S. in Digital Media from Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, and a MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management.
