Full Stack Software Engineer, Product
This role will be focused on the development of our HoloSuite line of products, including HoloEdit, HoloStream and upcoming products in stealth mode. Initially the successful candidate will be working on the user portal for HoloStream, our global adaptive bitrate streaming technology. This portal helps users manage content, review analytics about their viewership, and playback volumetric content with our streaming webplayer technology. This can be a Junior or Intermediate position, to be determined based on relevant experience.

Our approach to engineering involves cross training on multiple areas of our software systems with a varied and dynamic set of problems to solve. While our work is challenging we support each other, winning as a team and celebrating our successes together. We value diligence, care and craft in our work while working with our customers in mind to give them the best experience we can with our product. This role will require an empathetic mindset for user experience to take our product to the next level; while you will be working with a designer, vernacular and experience in this area is desired to fill in the gaps and move quickly and carefully.

There is room in this role for additional focus on cloud system design, devops, or build engineering, should it be of interest to the candidate.
