Job Description

The Work
You'll be working on AdProxy, a microservice in a larger ecosystem of a video streaming platform that offers both live and on-demand capabilities to small organizations and big media companies alike. Disney, ESPN and FOX, (among others) use our platform to painlessly stream content to iOS, Android, set-top boxes and web apps. AdProxy is directly responsible for fetching and delivering ad payloads used in streams. Facilitating top-tier media customers to monetize their content via server-side ad insertion is a priority for our business in both protecting existing revenue and increasing revenue for new and existing customers.



Job Requirements:

Our system is written in Python and uses the Django framework as well as Django Rest Framework for APIs. In addition to Django, we rely on technologies including Redis, PostgreSQL, AmazonSQS, and Kubernetes. If you've shipped code in other languages, we're not worried about your ability to pick up Python. Familiarity with Linux and the command line will help out, as will a solid understanding of HTTP. Some of the things our services do (maintenance and feature development of these is ongoing):

• Talk to ad servers for fetching viewer-specific ads into streams
• Parse ad responses into functional models
• Transactional logging in real-time
• Serialize and deserialize complex data structures

Bonus Points if you have these:
• Experience working with digital ads, video preferred
• A working knowledge of the VAST/VMAP specifications
• Knowledge of adaptive streaming video (HLS and DASH)

Some of the projects we'll be working on soon:
• Kubernetes based automated deployment
• Automated performance monitoring
• Introduction of Azure as additional cloud infrastructure

No Sub-Contract, Third Parties or Corp to Corp arrangements! W2 only!

Note: U.S. Citizens and those authorized to work in the U.S. without sponsorship will be considered. We are unable to sponsor at this time.
