Description

Advantage Technical is seeking a Backend Software Engineer for our client in San Francisco, CA. 
Hack the Full Stack
Our client's engineers hack up and down the technology stack. It’s not uncommon for an engineer to go from backend coding to user experience design, from the video encoding pipeline to system scalability, from site maintenance to iOS/Android development. Our client's engineers own what they build from start to finish. We ship to production multiple times per day and keep unnecessary process to a minimum so we can maintain our pace of rapid development.
We are actively hiring engineers who are looking to build a completely new kind of product and who have a passion for back-end and/or front-end development.
Infrastructure
Our client's infrastructure consists of thousands of connected machines in nearly 100 data-centers across the country, with new machines spinning up every week. Our client is harnessing petabyte storage and petaflop compute power in a highly distributed environment. Our systems ingest roughly 50Gb of video per second, then transcode, segment, and encrypt it to deliver live television to our users. Meanwhile, our DVR storage system writes millions of episodes to disk every day. We operate in two different environments: on commercial cloud infrastructure, as well as within the unpredictable world of remotely managed hardware in a wide variety of hosting environments across the country.
As a backend engineer you will be responsible for:
Brainstorming, designing, implementing, and rolling out the next generation of our client's system to handle an order of magnitude more channels, users, and recordings.
Developing our video pipeline: building a highly available transcoding, segmentation, and video hosting and storage system.
Automating system configuration: since we’re a small team, constantly deploying both new hardware systems and code in cloud infrastructure, we have no choice but to heavily automate our infrastructure.
Hacking on our monitoring and management system: we graph, track, and alert on all kinds of metrics up and down our stack, giving us important insight into performance trends and helping us catch issues before they impact our users.
Finding cheaper, faster, better solutions: both in our cloud environment and our hardware-based systems, we’re always trying to reduce costs and improve our product.
We are language agnostic, but most of our server-side code is written in Golang, Node, and Ruby, with some C++ and Python. Our centralized infrastructure is built out on Kubernetes, and we practice continuous deployment across all of our systems.
