We're looking for a senior staff software engineer (video) to join our team. This is a unique role at magicseaweed, primarily focused on our live streaming services and products. As a senior staff engineer, you'll be working with a mid-sized team, across a wide variety of technologies (Java, Python, Node), on our live and VOD streaming infrastructure.
You'll be working closely with data scientists to productionise and scale machine learning models. You'll mentor junior and senior engineers on the team either by direct instruction or setting a strong cultural example. As a senior staff engineer, you'll be able to provide simple, maintainable and performant solutions for the technical problems using new technology that abstract other teams from complexity. We're looking for someone driven by a desire to deliver user experiences that other companies aspire to, capable of working in a broad set of languages and able to skill up in unfamiliar languages and SDKs quickly. We're after someone extremely proactive, able to wear multiple hats and deliver.
*You don't need to be surfer to work for us. We design and build a web application, not laze around at the beach. Although if you have an interest in it or another action sport of a similar nature you may receive a high 5 so definitely mention it.
