Our team is made up of 8 full-time developers that work here in our offices along side our graphic design team. We’re looking to add two more developers in the near-future as our user-base continues to grow well over 1.5 million active users.
Each developer has their own passions, so we do our best to tap into those passions by providing projects that each individual can take hold of and get excited about. This includes new features that would help all of our users, or new devices that we should support (like the Apple TV).
Our team works in a collaborative environment where the designers and developers work side-by-side in an open-office part of our office.
We're regularly spending time as a team brainstorming the next big feature that we're going to add to the software for our customers.
Every two weeks lunch is provided for the whole software team. It's a time for different members of the team to talk about new technologies they've learned about that might be helpful to our software or development life cycle.
We support many platforms for our streaming applications, and because the team is not segmented into specializations, everyone gets a chance to help craft the overall experience for these apps -
- iPhone/iPad (iOS)
- Apple TV (tvOS)
- Smart TV (Vizio, Toshiba)
- Fire TV (Coming soon)
- …always looking for more devices to support
We rely on many different tools to help streamline our overall development life cycle, including AWS, GitHub, Team City, Octopus, Visual Studio, xCode and SQL 2014.
Skills & Requirements
- Experience with C# and/or Java
- Familiar with MVC
- Basic understanding of SQL
- Bachelor of Arts or Science required
