Our employees are leading, creating, innovating, and making bold moves in unexpected directions that redefine not just what a mass media entertainment company does, but what it can do.

Being part of the DTCI team is a once-in-a-career opportunity to be a part of what’s next.

We strive to be a diverse team, passionate about great technology applied creatively to solve complex business problems. We are a motivated team that is committed to lifelong learning and improving, both in and out of the office. We strive to be adaptable to change both in how we execute projects and in the technologies we use to deliver our solutions. We care about the details because every pixel, every line of code, and every user interaction with our products determines whether we are delivering on our commitment to producing the very best products possible.

You will be an active participant in the full SDLC process, through discovery, design, implementation, testing and support, including documentation of relevant deliverables for both the business and technical teams. As the ideal candidate, you will be able to manage expectations related to scope of work. You have a track record of guiding internal and external teams, both on-site and remote, to build new functionality and update and maintain existing features and applications. You will govern coding and delivery standards while helping guide new developers toward becoming trusted contributors to our product and growing their individual talent. You will be an important part of a motivated team where we’ll be looking for you to collaborate with the team to drive application architecture, code quality, and make sure we are building the right things for our users.

Someone who holds themselves and their teammates accountable in a respectful, professional, collaborative manner. A collaborative technologist who seeks to bring the best out in themselves and those around them. Someone who can provide a fresh perspective and innovative insight to our initiatives.
