About the Role

Twitch operates the largest dedicated live video CDN in the world, routinely delivering over 25Tbps to more than 5MM concurrent viewers. The Video Distribution team is responsible for the software that operates that CDN, which includes everything from custom edge software that delivers video on thousands of hosts worldwide, to the graphing algorithms that manage our worldwide caching hierarchy, and to the highly complex and introspective algorithms that decide what server a user should be assigned when they start playback.

We are looking for engineers who are excited by the thought of working across the entire CDN stack, from service load-balancing, to performance optimization, and to backbone traffic management. Reporting to the Director of Engineering, Video Distribution, you will help architect, develop, test, deploy, operate, and maintain our video software software. As part of the team, we will work together to enable our broadcasters and viewers to create and interact in new , innovative ways.
