With the rise in popularity of Over-the-Top and TV Everywhere apps such as Netflix and Amazon; vying for consumer attention in the digital world we live in has never been more challenging. To remain relevant at a time where video entertainment can be sought out at the swipe of a screen or click of a button, content providers are investing in innovative solutions that place their content front and centre, easing accessibility and increasing engagement.
As one of our Developers, your primary responsibility will be to assist in the creation of a complete solution that facilitates the rapid development and deployment of multiplatform OTT and TVE apps, and that leverages Unity® to target smart TVs, smartphones and gaming consoles.
Our team is made up of versatile, passionate and lively developers with varying levels of expertise. They take pride in their ability to write top-quality code and create powerful products and, believing that the whole team is responsible for the code they write, shy away from working in silos.
The product being developed relies on a complex set of plugins to seamlessly integrate with numerous back-end authentication systems, video streaming services and standards (HLS, MPEG-DASH, DRM). It will also be able to capture relevant metrics (Adobe / Google Analytics). Resource loading will be asynchronous and optimized using appropriate caching strategies. The solution’s interface will be responsive, provide smooth transitions between screens, and offer an exceptional overall user experience. Each screen’s layout will be dynamic and will thus respond and adjust to user data and screen/device format.
Though this project’s tasks will be distributed evenly throughout the team, the new Developer’s level of responsibility will be determined based on your technical expertise.
