About JW Player:

JW Player is the leading video software and data insights platform that gives our customers independence and control in today’s Digital Video Economy. Founded over a decade ago as an open source video player, JW Player’s technology platform now powers digital video for hundreds of thousands of businesses across NA, EMEA, APAC and LATAM. Each month, there are over 1 billion viewers across 2.7 billion unique devices consuming video on JW Player’s technology. 

The Engineering Team:

JW Player’s Engineering team is responsible for building highly scalable systems that handle  thousands of requests per second. Our  data applications and pipelines drive monetization for our customers across billions of devices every month. We have a modern tech stack including our own Kubernetes based deployment system.

The Opportunity:

A lot of viewers means a lot of data - we process billions of data points a day, and over 3 million data points a minute - all coming from the player itself. The Data Pipelines team is responsible for processing this data at scale using cutting-edge big data tools and technologies, and providing both the company and our customers with high-quality data to empower strategic, data-driven decision making.

As a Software Engineer, you will:

  • Build distributed batch & real-time pipelines using Spark, Kafka, Flink, and Airflow, with programming languages like Python, Java, and SQL
  • Work to efficiently scale our pipelines out as data volume grows
  • Go deep on Postgres and Snowflake, driving our data models forward and optimizing our data stores
  • Follow industry-standard best practices to ensure data quality and integrity
  • Enhance our end-to-end QA infrastructure
  • Build and maintain APIs that serve data directly to customers
  • Be part of a highly-skilled team that values kindness, open communication, and mentorship

Requirements of the role:

  • You have relevant experience working with data systems and technologies
  • Strong SQL skills
  • Fluency in Python and potentially Java
  • A strong work ethic and drive to learn new skills
  • An exploratory mindset - you are driven to dig deep and develop understanding
  • Experience writing unit, functional, and integration tests for your code
  • Comfort working in a cloud environment - we use AWS
  • A sense of humor and collaborative spirit

Bonus Points:

  • Familiarity with AWS, in particular, EC2, S3, RDS, and EMR
  • Understanding of Docker
  • Experience with CI/CD tooling and distributed deployments, such as Buildkite
  • Experience with Kubernetes
  • Javascript skills, or an interest in developing them
