Location: San Francisco, 94107
Our client is a small and ambitious San Francisco-based startup building the future of television. They're an underdog fighting for a seat at the table with the big cable providers. Their product lets you watch your favorite shows on all the devices you care about with intelligent search, insightful discovery, and effortless sharing. Their leadership consists of founding team members from Facebook and Meraki, and brings deep industry experience to the team. They re backed by NEA and industry partners including HBO, Discovery, AMC, A&E, Scripps, and Viacom.
Necessity is the mother of invention: our client was born in a Harvard dorm room, where cable TV wasn t offered and the over-the-air broadcast couldn t penetrate the walls of the 300-year-old brick residence halls. The founders wanted to watch TV around campus, so they wrapped their room in aluminum foil to boost the signal, and connected it to a server to stream it over the campus network.
Company and Culture: They re a small team that puts our product experience first. They foster a flexible work environment that is supportive but allows for autonomy so that everyone on the team can help build towards a common vision. Each team member owns what they build from start to finish. They ship to production multiple times per day and keep unnecessary process to a minimum so they can maintain a pace of rapid development. Our client values pragmatism, having pride in your work, and deep transparency at all levels.
Design and Build: The Product Team is responsible for designing, building, testing, and quite literally reinventing television, the most engaging product ever created, across web, mobile, and TV platforms. Each team member works together on the entire product experience. It s not uncommon to go from brainstorming backend considerations to polishing design details, from understanding how the video encoding pipeline affects performance to the different needs of different platforms.

You will own the experience for a significant part of every user s experience.
