As a Senior Software Engineer, you’d work on the next big thing in large-scale backend software development. That could be scaling an API to serve millions of requests per second, managing state across multiple regions, or building new mechanisms to secure our video content. Join our New York-based Media Engineering community at BAMTECH.

  • Build tooling and dashboard to monitor health of your applications;
  • Optimize a build-and-release pipeline to get software to production efficiently and safely;
  • Lead a design session on a completely new architecture;
  • Be an catalyst for change and exploring new directions;
  • Mentor junior engineers on your team;
  • Meet with an industry-leading partner about a new project;
  • Join the crew at happy hour or screening of a new movie; and
  • Work from home (you’d have the flexibility to do this on occasion)!

Basic Qualifications:

Please apply if you have:
  • 5+ years experience developing software applications;
  • 3+ years experience developing Java or Scala applications;
  • 3+ years experience building highly-scalable distributed systems;
  • Strong career ambitions that shine through your projects;
  • The ability to effectively collaborate - using strengths of many;
  • Natural curiosity - you enjoy digging deeper to see the big picture; and
  • Know-how in shipping products.

It would also be nice if you are:
  • Adept at leveraging cloud infrastructure such as AWS;
  • Experienced with real-time messaging platforms such as Kafka or AWS Kinesis;
  • Knowledgeble about persistence technologies like Reis or DynamoDB;
  • Resilient - up for the challenge of continuous improvement;
  • Tenacious – able to deliver through ambiguity;
  • Energized by fast-paced environments.
