Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions. We bring the joy of co-op to everything, from casual gaming to world-class esports to anime marathons, music, and art streams. Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate, learn, and grow their personal interests and passions. We’re always live at Twitch. Stay up to date on all things Twitch on LinkedIn, Twitter and on our Blog.
The Video Ingest team, a part of the Video Platform organization, develops distributed systems and services as well as media formats and protocols that acquire live streams from the community of broadcasters, perform real-time processing (e.g. video trans-coding) on these streams, and provide a high throughput control plane for making them available for world-wide distribution at scale. We lead the worldwide expansion of Twitch using distributed systems and computer networking technologies to onboard content streams (that could originate anywhere on the planet) onto the Twitch network. Streamlined video trans-coding in our agile media processing pipeline enables a globally responsive and cost efficient system. The scalable playback edge system supports the worldwide delivery of trans-coded media segments and provides a nimble platform for content delivery and playback experimentation. Insights from these experiments are used by our machine learning system to guide product decisions.
The Video Ingest team is looking for a software developer to join our Contribution Edge development efforts. This includes control planes, data plane services and protocols supporting the termination of customer video broadcasts at the Twitch infrastructure edge and ingestion of customer content into the Twitch Video Platform for later distribution.
We are looking for a software developer, with architectural and debugging skills, that cares about scalability, availability and quality to build the next generation of our new multi-tenant video services. Being a part of our team will mean you will focus on discovering creative solutions to scale up and reduce the cost of video data ingestion and encoding, from networking down to the hardware layer. We have a very unique opportunity to shape the future of the video industry and your goal to solve challenging problems will play a key role in its success. You will get exposure to all this, while having a fun and supportive culture at your disposal.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Twitch. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
