The Position: Our client is looking for a smart and motivated engineer at the architect level to help us design and implement the next generation of our Silverlight-based streaming clients, used by millions of our customers.

About you:

You are a senior engineer at the system architect level with a strong background in building consumer-facing software in a PC and Mac environment including experience with video playback on one or both of these platforms. You like to work hands-on and self-directed in a fast-paced, growing organization that gives you room to apply your expertise to solve big technical challenges. If you’re our ideal candidate, you will hold your own among a very demanding peer group. You have a deep conceptual understanding of video playback, Internet networking, UI frameworks and Windows/Mac platform idiosyncrasies, and you’re motivated and able to apply your expertise wisely to build a real business that is quite unlike others before. You know how to collect data and analyze it to guide your work. We expect that we will learn a lot from you, but you will also learn much from us.

About us:

Our client builds high performance, experienced and motivated teams. The organization is flat, process is minimal, and there’s an emphasis on keeping non-productive influences out of everyday technical decisions. This position is in a group that will lead our client into the next decade of its success – the team that is building the next generation of streaming clients on a variety of target platforms. Challenges in our group never cease! Our client software relies on industry-leading adaptive streaming technology to deliver a great movie watching experience for a wide variety of customer profiles. Every day, we make technology decisions with far-reaching impact around internet networking, backend scalability, content security, process automation, etc. while we build the technological foundation of this new business.

Requirements:

• 10+ years of relevant software development experience, 5+ years in a technical leadership / architect role.
• Expert in OO design and implementation using C# or similar language.
• Expert in building video playback applications on PC and/or Mac.
• Demonstrated experience with Silverlight or WPF, including XAML and MVVM.
• Experience with mobile application platforms (e.g. Windows Phone 7) is a plus.
• Demonstrated ability to present and publish your ideas (e.g. in form of open-source contributions, presentations, technical blog postings, or published books or papers) is a big plus.
