  • Experience debugging and profiling software run on a Linux operating system (e.g. GDB, PProf, etc.)
  • Participate in an on-call rotation and act as a subject matter expert for fuboTV-internal groups

Additionally, the Senior level role for the Video Input/Output team has some additional expectations:

  • Self-motivated and capable of driving high-complexity projects to completion
  • Conduct design reviews for new and existing code
  • Either have production experience working with media streaming protocols (e.g. HTTP Live Streaming) or willingness to learn
  • Remain informed of industry best-practices and standards and promote their use internally to the Video Input/Output group (including HLS, DASH, and other video-specific technologies)
  • Enhance the quality of our codebases while increasing their simplicity, as well as providing mentoring to help teammates do the same

We are looking for Software Engineers who care about code quality, uptime, performance, continuous deployment, SOLID design principles, and agile (with a lowercase “a”) methodologies.
