Software Engineer, Web Front-End
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:
- Building web-based products for both clients and colleagues to use
- Developing the public-facing CMS & Live Video Production products
- Building tools for managing live and on-demand video content
- Building tools for internal teams to help them become more cooperative and effective
- Working with the backend team to design, produce, and consume HTTP API's
- Supporting existing tools and building new ones using a variety of technologies (Primarily Python3 & Django. Occasionally using React, Redux, Babel, ES6)
- Working with design and product team to solve UX challenges
What you'll need to do it:
- Experience with any server-side framework (eg. Django, Rails, Express)
- Appreciation for what makes solid UX on the web
- Understanding of accessibility, internationalization, and localization
- An understanding of the general “No Assholes” policy
What would be cool:
- You have experience with Django and Python 3
- You are keeping pace with rapidly changing development techniques
- You have worked with Web VR technologies like ReactVR or Aframe
- Your personal Github page is full of cool projects you wanna share with us
- Experience with video editing tools
- You are familiar with video streaming technologies
- You are familiar with Progressive Web Apps
- You can banter one minute and crunch the next
- You’ve got a strong sense of personal drive and when tasked to solve something tricky will move forward at full force
- You’re some kind of fancy chef and you wanna cook us food
