Unity® / C# Developer

Montreal, QC

The Challenge

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, premium content providers are investing in innovative solutions that place their content front and centre, ease accessibility and increase engagement.

As one of our Unity® / C# Developers, your primary responsibility will be to work on our E2 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.

The Team

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 Role

The product being developed relies on a complex set of plugins that allow it to seamlessly integrate with numerous back-end authentication services, video streaming services and standards (HLS, MPEG-DASH, DRM), as well as capture relevant metrics (Adobe / Google Analytics). Resource loading must be asynchronous and optimized using appropriate caching strategies. The interface must be responsive, provide smooth transitions between screens, and offer an exceptional user experience. Each screen’s layout is dynamic and should thus respond and adjust to user data and screen/device format.

Though this particular project’s tasks will be distributed evenly throughout the team, our new Developers' levels of responsibility will be determined by the technical expertise they bring to the table.

The Profile

In addition to being a people person with exceptional problem-solving skills, you also have an MBA or a Master's or Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering or Computer Science, at least 5 years of software development experience and should be familiar with the following practices:

  • .NET (C# 6.0/7.0, generics, LINQ)
  • Design patterns
  • S.O.L.I.D. principles
  • Dependency injection
  • Unit testing

The Nice-To-Haves

  • 3D development (Unity 3D, OpenGL, maths, matrices, quaternions, vector, etc.)
  • Reactive programming (http://reactivex.io, Rx.NET, UniRx, etc.)
  • Video development (Codecs, HLS, MPEG-DASH, DRMs, GStreamer, FFmpeg, DirectShow, etc.)
  • Mobile development (iOS/Android, Swift, Objective-C, Java, etc.)
  • Web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, XML, Node.js, TypeScript, etc.)
  • Multiplatform development (Open Source, Mono, C/C++, Windows/OS X/Linux)
