Don’t just take our word for it, come see for yourself and be a part of a team that’s pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of media streaming. Apply now and let’s build something great together!

<Role Description/>
What’s better than writing code that reaches millions of concurrent users globally? Doing it with millions more in mind. In 2020, our customer went global, multiplying their engineering challenges. To support their global takeover as the leading sports OTT platform we are looking for Backend Engineers who are passionate about building a modern, scalable and resilient platform and want to contribute to our mission of pushing the boundaries.

We give you autonomy over the software you build and offer you the freedom to choose the right tool for the job. In return, we expect you to take (e2e) ownership of the systems you build, and that means:
● You’re responsible for the operational health of your services
● You’re empowered and encouraged to fix operational issues (i.e. there will be space for improvement work and bug fixes in the sprints)

We are using a microservices architecture and everything is hosted in AWS. We use a combination of both containers as well as serverless, and many managed AWS services including DynamoDB, API Gateway, ECS, Lambda and much more. Our teams mainly use NodeJS to build our backend systems, therefore, experience with JavaScript would be great! However, we hire tech agnostically as we believe in hiring problem solvers! If you can contribute to our engineering challenge then we would be happy to teach you the tools necessary to be successful with us.
