Web Media Technology - Lead Developer - OTT Services for Web and Apps


We are a nimble team distributed in and around the greater NYC area building solutions for our clients in Media, Entertainment, Sports, and Fashion. This means creating video-centric digital experiences, building and supporting direct-to-consumer (D2C) apps for mobile and connectedTVs based on both AVOD and TVOD business models (heavy emphasis on Live streaming), and custom workflows in support of digital video capture, editing and distribution (apps/experiences, syndication, social). We are an end-to-end shop building and/or integrating with select partners in the D2C connected TV and apps landscape.

We are looking for a creative, self-driven Lead Developer/Software Engineer with strong analytical, problem-solving, organizational, and prioritization skills. Someone who takes a hands-on approach to deliver the best product experience for customers. Must be a self-starter with a self-motivated attitude, and willing to take initiative and show high interest in technology and continuous learning. Experience working with external personnel and vendors desired.  

Our new Lead Developer/Software Engineer will be responsible for our back-end video platform and publishing workflow tools responsible for transcoding, delivery, and live streaming services. The engineer will work across multiple projects and teams (engineering, production, PMO) to innovate and drive our software solutions forward. Architect and build new software solutions in the areas of video processing and management, distributed systems, microservices, scale, performance, and storage. Build scalable software systems to support our video management tools and delivery services. Create production-ready, scalable web services, and build and expand on our cloud-based infrastructure. Build API features that serve customer-driven product goals, and prototype new ideas.

  • Join a cross-functional team where you’ll work with engineers, designers, and product managers to iterate on small, shippable features for B Live’s OTT stack/offering (e.g. advertising, live video, content protection, automated services and more)
  • Improve performance, monitoring, alerting, and security for our services
  • Be an integral part of our engineering team: mentor more junior engineers, collaborate on architectural decisions and drive best practices and standards
  • You have experience designing and implementing features from start to finish
  • Familiarity with the entire stack - web servers, the application layer, caching, databases
  • Advanced knowledge of PHP and working knowledge of Python, and Javascript
  • Strong grasp of object-oriented programming concepts and implementation
  • Strong DB experience with MySQL 
  • Experience with AWS services, particularly EC2 and Cloudfront
  • Experience with FFmpeg is a plus
  • You prioritize shipping user value and have the agile experience to help our whole team focus on our users
  • You can work across teams - we regularly collaborate with peers on non-technical teams
  • You deploy high-quality code and automated tests including authoring documentation of common development processes and components
