Sr. Mobile Video Engineer

New York, NY
Development
Full-time

With our VR technology right at the cross-section of mobile and video, it only seems natural that adding a master of both to our team would be our next step. With an ever-increasing amount of content on our horizon, having someone who can optimize our mobile engineering workflow and innovate our video streaming capabilities is a must. Though the task is not small, we’re looking for someone willing to dive headfirst into this challenge, enabling us to come out on top.

LiveLike is a funded and well-endorsed live sports VR startup. We, at our core, are a big group of nerds, sports fanatics, and generally lovable people. We're as passionate about VR as we are about free morning coffee and 5 o’clock beers, so our team has access to every major VR 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" culture. Not only are we mega-awesome, we've also done good work, partnering most notably with FOX Sports to do Super Bowl LI in VR. On top of that, we have a handful of other accolades, but we can discuss that later. For now, onto the important stuff...

We love cover letters, but we don't love copy-pasted walls of text. 2-3 sentences about why you're awesome are more impactful than 4 generic paragraphs.
