Backend Engineer

Gurgaon, India
Development
Full-time

LiveLike is a funded and well-endorsed VR/AR/interactive live sports company. We have partnered most notably with FOX Sports to release Social on Fox Sports VR. We also broadcasted Superbowl LI and created French Tennis Open VR with France TV for both Mobile and VR platforms. These are just a few of the many clients we work with and we’re actively growing in all four corners of the world.

At our core, we are a big group of nerds, sports fanatics, and generally lovable people. We're as passionate about next-gen sport live streaming as we are about free morning coffee and 5 o’clock drinks, so our team has access to every major VR/AR/MR system, and so will you. We've worked extremely hard to get where we are right now but we wholly embrace the laid back but "get s**t done" attitude.

At LiveLike we build things that challenge the typical concept of what it means to watch live sports. So it's only natural for us to specialize in creating one of the best platforms to watch live sports in virtual reality. For that to happen though, we need a team of developers and designers that are not only the some of the best, but who are comfortable working outside of the status quo.

We’re looking for the newest member of our Backend team. Someone who not only specializes in Django & AWS, but someone who brings the same fire to work everyday that we do. If you think you’ve got the skills and are up for the challenge then consider this your calling.

The Job

    • Developing the backend and REST APIs for our live VR apps.
    • Scaling backend operations across 4 continents to meet the needs of our clients - the world's top sports broadcasters.
    • Developing the backend for our live video production management system.
    • Designing always-on highly reliable systems (and monitoring them)
    • Working with the Backend and Product teams to plan, execute and integrate functionality

The Requirements

    • 3+ years experience as a Backend Engineer
    • Expertise with Django/Python
    • Experience with developing complex software systems at scale with production quality deployment, monitoring and reliability.
    • Bonus: Experience with live and/or on-demand video

You

    • We’re the kind of team that can banter one minute and crunch the next, we’d love for you to be able to do the same
    • You’ve got a strong sense of personal drive and when tasked to solve something tricky will move forward at full force
    • In the same breath, you believe your team is your most valuable resource and you won’t hesitate to collaborate with them
    • You have got an insatiable hunger for all things VR & AR.
    • An unbridled passion for VR, sports, gaming, food, otters, or anything really. We appreciate passion…
    • You’re a techie at heart and you want to talk to us about the latest stuff you saw on Product Hunt, Gamasutra, Medium, ESPN, etc, etc...
    • You understand the “No-Assholes” policy
    • You’re not afraid of an open, candid, and respectful work environment
