Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions. We bring the joy of co-op to everything, from casual gaming to world-class esports to anime marathons, music, and art streams. Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate, learn, and grow their personal interests and passions. We’re always live at Twitch. Stay up to date on all things Twitch on LinkedIn, Twitter and on our Blog.
Twitch is building the future of live interactive entertainment, and video is at the very core of that vision. Twitch’s Video Playback engineering team is looking for an experienced C++ video client engineer to improve and evolve the bitrate (ABR) algorithm in our cross-platform playback library. This low-level library powers playback on all of the platforms that Twitch supports, including desktop and mobile web, Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and others. As a core playback engineer, you will help shape the future of the Twitch live video experience used by over 15 million users a day.
If you are passionate about video, streaming, or entertainment, have a background in mathematics or statistics, and are excited about experimenting to decide, then this is the position for you. You will work with experienced video veterans in building the player for the largest live video streaming platform in the world. Along the way, you’ll gain in-depth knowledge of our highly available and scalable end-to-end live video infrastructure.
We can’t wait to see what we can build together!
