  • Work with the team to build frameworks to simplify deployment and testing.
  • Deliver innovative video solutions in collaboration with Video Encoding, Player and other Product Engineering teams 
  • Architect scalable, observable systems in collaboration with Cloud and CDN providers to deliver high quality user experience.
  • Evaluate and propose new solutions to improve performance and cost

Skills & Knowledge You Should Possess:

  • 4+ years of experience programming for distributed systems.
  • Experience designing and implementing scalable systems in the cloud.
  • Experience with containers (e.g. Docker) and orchestration (e.g. Kubernetes).
  • Write high-quality code, tests and make sure your services are monitored.

Bonus points (nice skills to have, but not needed):

  • Experience with Go.
  • Experience working with video technologies (ffmpeg, HLS, Dash, etc.).
  • Experience with Google Cloud.
  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code (Terraform).
