About Us

About the Role

Twitch operates the largest dedicated live video CDN in the world, often delivering over 25Tbps to more than 5MM concurrent viewers. The Video Distribution team manages 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 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. You will help architect, develop, test, deploy, operate, and maintain our video software. As part of the team, we will work together to help our broadcasters and viewers to create and interact in creative ways. You will specifically be responsible for parts of our view counting system and related architecture. You will report to the Software Development Manager of the Video Distribution Backbone team.

You can work in San Francisco, CA ; Irvine, CA; Seattle, WA; New York, NY; Salt Lake City, UT; Vancouver, BC; Toronto, ON; or remote in Canada and the USA.
