Transmit.Live is hosted predominantly on Amazon Web Services and every product of the platform is architected for scalability and high availability for a global client base. A successful candidate will have prior experience building web services, and be able to bring that knowledge to bear. We're looking for engineers who understand how to scale software services and architect distributed systems, and who are familiar with various databases and other open source tools.

As a software engineer at Transmit.Live, you will help design and build our live video production platform to provide innovative media services at scale.
