Principal React Developer - Video Streaming

Are you mid level JavaScript developer who would be interested in working on software that lets users stream some of the worlds biggest sporting events in real-time? Think of what it is like to build software that delivers HD streaming to millions of users from a live feed. Think UFC fights and NFL super bowl. Those kinds of numbers.

The role here is for a Senior JavaScript developer to work under an experienced engineering manager and work on a variety of projects (media players, playback technology, bespoke CMS systems). The team uses a mix of JavaScript and TypeScript and delivers across a broad range of platforms web, mobile, TV as well as consoles like Xbox etc. The work is especially challenging as the events are streamed live so there is a lot of complexity involved in delivering the content to a large user base with huge peaks in user numbers.

What is required to be a good fit?

  • Proven experience of building robust consumer facing web platforms

  • Excellent JavaScript knowledge (newer work is in TypeScript)

  • Strong React knowledge

Nice to haves

  • Any familiarity with mobile development (React Native)

  • Experience of managing own infrastructure in AWS

  • A “you build it you run it” mentality

Does this sound like it could be your next challenge?
