Job Role
We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Software Engineer, to work in our OTT team, with proven front-end experience and feels comfortable in server and cloud environments. Knowledge of the design and use of RESTful APIs for powering front-end applications is a must.

  • Experience developing with and against RESTful APIs and microservices architectures.
  • Familiarity with automated testing best practices, and Continuous Integration/Delivery (ideally with GitLab).
  • Experience working with agile software development methodologies. Experience with containerization, ideally using Docker and ECS or Kubernetes.
