About the Role

The Video Ingest team, a part of the Video Platform organization, develops distributed systems and services as well as media formats and protocols that acquire live streams from the community of broadcasters, perform real-time processing (e.g. video trans-coding) on these streams, and provide a high throughput control plane for making them available for world-wide distribution at scale. We lead the worldwide expansion of Twitch using distributed systems and computer networking technologies to onboard content streams (that could originate anywhere on the planet) onto the Twitch network. Streamlined video trans-coding in our agile media processing pipeline enables a globally responsive and cost efficient system. The scalable playback edge system supports the worldwide delivery of trans-coded media segments and provides a nimble platform for content delivery and playback experimentation. Insights from these experiments are used by our machine learning system to guide product decisions.

The Video Ingest team is looking for a software developer to lead new programs for our media processing systems. We are building a new iteration of our video services that allow for great flexibility in managing our video transcoding resources. This includes efficient management of our transcoding capacity, dynamic load balancing of our global transcoding fleet, nimbleness in how we onboard transcoding recipes and perform transcodes, and validation flows for audio and video bitstreams that get on-boarded to Twitch.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager, Video Platform; you will use your experience with architectural and debugging skills, that cares about scalability, availability and quality to build the next generation of our new multi-tenant video services. As part of the processing team you will focus on discovering creative solutions at scale and reduce the cost of video data ingestion and encoding. We have a very unique opportunity to shape the future of the video industry and your goal to solve challenging problems will contribute to its success. You will get exposure to all this, while having a fun and supportive culture at your disposal.
