Sr. Software Engineer

Santa Monica, CA
Engineering
Full-time
At the intersection of technology and entertainment, Atom’s team of dreamers and doers are dedicated to changing the way people go to the movies. Why movies? Because they have the power to bring us together and connect us through shared experiences. We’re driving innovation, accomplishing the unthinkable and we need passionate talent like you to join our team.
 
As a senior member of Atom Engineering, you will be working with a group of highly motivated technologists who thrive on solving challenging problems with innovative solutions. You will play critical role in the design and delivery of critical high-volume solutions subjected to erratic and morphing seasonal traffic. You will lead implementations of large-scale, minimal down-time, distributed software systems in Scala/Play, Python and other languages. You will work with virtually all of the functional organizations across Atom - including Product, Marketing and Operations.
 
We believe that accomplishing something great requires a special group of people who work hard, drive results and have a blast while doing it—people who challenge the status quo and embody our values. People who say, “I’ll find a way” instead of saying, “it can’t be done.”

    • Drive advanced algorithms and architecture design, execute and deliver technology innovation
    • Continually improve our services and technology stack

We would like you to have unique experiences – ones that we believe will help you be most successful (position requirements):

    • Exceptional Computer Science fundamentals in object-oriented design, data structures, complexity analysis, machine learning and adaptive algorithms
    • Proven experience with large-scale, big-data systems, bulk data analysis and pattern recognition
    • Strong proficiency in Scala/Play, Java, Python, SQL and ETL
    • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic and ambiguous environment where continuous innovation is the norm
    • A willingness to roll up your sleeves and do whatever is necessary, despite challenges and obstacles
    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent
    • 2+ years of work experience building software across the entire development cycle
    • Familiarity with cloud and web services technologies that are backed by AWS services
