Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions. We bring the joy of co-op to everything, from casual gaming to world-class esports to anime marathons, music, and art streams. Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate, learn, and grow their personal interests and passions. We’re always live at Twitch. Stay up to date on all things Twitch onLinkedIn,Twitter and on ourBlog.
About the Role
Amazon Interactive Video Service (IVS) is an end-to-end, managed, live video streaming solution, built on the same technology that powers Twitch. It is quick and easy to set up, and enables customers to send live streams to viewers across the world. IVS technology allows companies like GoPro, Blackboard, and Payna, to build a low-latency live video experience–just like Twitch.
The IVS Core team bridges the gap between the IVS team and the AWS team. As a member of the team, you will own and operate on the customer-facing aspects of the IVS system, including APIs, vended Cloudwatch metrics, and the data pipeline that powers the billing system. Because we specialize in cross-functional projects that involve many teams, we are looking for candidates who prefer strong ownership, empowerment, and collaboration.
