JOB #: 17052501-P


Thriving Technology Company developing a revolutionary platform for digital video and big data analytics is seeking a Staff or Senior UI Software Engineer! You will be one of the first key software hires tasked with architecting a new cloud based platform and building out the team.

This role will work closely with senior level backend software and systems engineers, product managers, and data scientists. You will be focused on the presentation layer UI for their web based platform. If you are more versatile, you’ll have the opportunity to work on the FullStack as well – this is a role where you can stretch your programming wings!

Their software will capture massive amounts of data about content consumption and other data points for their entertainment based clients. You will have a chance to work with brilliant engineers and scientists on challenges that have never been solved before, and be part of the emerging revolution in the convergence of advertising and digital entertainment!

This is a rare opportunity to join a small and very stable company who has been in business for over 15 years and be part of a product innovation team, which is a “startup” division funded by other revenues. You’ll thus have the support and backing of a stable company but the flexibility and opportunity of a startup

Additionally, if you like working in a culture that fosters a non-political family atmosphere, has a very low attrition rate (average of 7+ years tenure), and a solid executive team with ongoing commitment to push the envelope with new technologies… this is the role for you!
