Sr. Video Streaming Engineer, VR/AR

New York, NY
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 broadcast the Superbowl LI and built 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.

What You'll Be Doing

    • Be our Video Streaming Guru: Hopefully you like superheroes because you'll be ours. But mostly in a “you're going to be the person who knows a lot about video streaming technologies and software development” kind of way.
    • Inventing: You'll be implementing cutting-edge video features such as live metadata sync, synchronized video across multiple clients, efficient simultaneous multi-video playback, and instantaneous multi-channel video switching. That's just the start of it though.
    • Creating: You'll develop video features for end-users via our apps. You'll also be building tools to assist the backend, QA, & product teams to utilize these features internally.
    • Collaborating: As fun as just working with engineers is, you can fully expect to be rubbing elbows with everyone that our teams have to offer. Expect to collaborate with our Product Managers, Project Managers, Ux/UI Designers, 3D artists, and the Business team regularly.
