Software Engineer - Discover & Watch

San Francisco, United States
Full-Time

This is a position where you get to both solve hard backend problems and contribute directly to features that millions of users interact with and enjoy. VOD is the focus of Twitch going into 2016. We want to make Twitch a compelling place to come for prerecorded content and take down the giants in the market. Some of our past, present, and future projects include:

- Offline playlists: a backend that synchronizes a VOD viewing experience across many people on a channel
- Chat Replay: a service for recording and playing back chat on VOD pages for the full Twitch experience
- Improvements to QoS and optimizations to decrease video loading times
- Experiments with methods to annotate VODs with metadata like when games begin and end

If you're looking for a place to build large scale services that are failure resistant and power real user-facing features, and if you're not intimidated by the challenge of making Twitch the dominant VOD destination for gaming content, then this is the place for you.
