W PLAYER NEEDS A SOFTWARE ENGINEER
We’ve written a lot about JW Player because this is one of Eindhoven’s best-kept secrets. JW Player and founder Jeroen Wijering laid the foundation for the embedded video technology that became YouTube. Now JW Player has clients for its proprietary video technology that include Amazon and a lot of the world’s largest media companies.
Though the company is technically based in New York City, Jeroen is based in Eindhoven, his hometown, along with the company’s engineering group.
Jeroen is looking for a software engineer. That person will help manage internal and user-facing dashboards, e-commerce and direct-sold payments systems, as well as internal user account management APIs and data stores, according to an email we got from them.
The ideal candidate is “a systems-minded person who can create simple solutions to complex problems while flourishing in a fast-paced, dynamic environment,” according to the email.
To be considered, you need:
3-plus years of experience in software development
fluency in Python
a proven track record with maintainable, stable and scalable software
a collaborative demeanor and excellent communications skills
an obsession for code quality and test coverage
a bias toward action: JW Players hires self-starters with ownership
strong Unix/Linux skills
knowledge of Docker and containerization
Bachelor’s degree (or more) in a Computer Science; or equivalent experience
We know from hanging out there this is an employee-friendly company with:
bi-annual hack weeks
employee-led instruction on everything from deep learning to knitting
P&E all hands where they walk through architecture and customer use cases
D&I committee fostering inclusiveness
a new-hire buddy program
Okay, there was a LOT more coder/developer jargon we didn’t have a clue about, so you can see the full careers announcement and application link here.
