Senior Video Streaming Engineer - Web Services

New York



Not many companies can say they stream more than two million videos per day, totaling petabytes of data each month. As the Engineering team behind Bloomberg's Consumer Media video delivery, our team owns the full stack of the video experience that includes a custom video player, configurations and asset management, and the actual delivery of both VOD and LIVE streams. What we build is used by Bloomberg's multiple TV and radio channels as well as our Video-on-Demand service. With more than 200,000 assets in our library, it's our job to make sure our end users can watch them wherever and whenever they want.

Besides hands-on development work on the player code and the backend services, the team works closely with multiple CDNs and global DNSs to manage stream delivery, balancing cost, quality, and availability. To do that, we work with the video producers, the frontend developers who are building the websites, and the content delivery networks. We are an industry leader as far as multi origin and multi CDN content delivery goes. You will have the opportunity to work with the full stack of media streaming technologies and the experience of owning and managing a large, highly available distributed system.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Engineer end-to-end multimedia infrastructure and delivery for web consumption
  •  Make improvements to deliver reliable and flexible service to our internal and external users
  •  Own our multimedia management and delivery

You'll need to have:

  •  Experience with streaming protocols (RTMP, HDS, HLS, DASH)
  •  Knowledge of encoding protocols (AAC, H.264, H.265)
  •  An understanding of end-to-end video delivery on various clients

We'd love to see:

  •  Experience with HTML5 Video
  •  Familiarity with Spring Framework
  •  Experience with a CDN for video streaming
