Comcast's Technology & Product organization works at the intersection of media and technology. Our innovative teams are continually developing and delivering products that transform the customer experience. From creating apps like TVGo to new features such as the Talking Guide on the X1 platform, we work every day to make a positive impact through innovation in the pursuit of building amazing products that are enjoyable, easy to use and accessible across all platforms. The team also develops and supports our evolving network architecture, including next-generation consumer systems and technologies, infrastructure and engineering, network integration and management tools, and technical standards.

As a highly valued, contributing software engineer on the VIPER Engineering team, you will help shape the next generation cloud-based video delivery pipeline. Our team develops solutions to quickly solve unique challenges faced by the Comcast IP video delivery teams.

What are the interesting problems you'll be working on?

VIPER's Platform Engineering team is developing a next-generation compute platform that enables the rapid delivery of high-performance video applications to datacenters all over the country. Our team is responsible for making one of the largest federated deployments of Kubernetes available as a service for many other teams to consume and use. Our success will be measured by the stability and scalability of our platform as more products and applications are migrated to containerized architectures.

Our newest project is to architect and develop engineering tools for UI, integration and functional verification of this compute platform. You would define and implement automation software for platform APIs and target services such as Kubernetes, RDEI API and begin defining automation software for verification of core infrastructure components. Everything developed is integrated into a CI/CD pipeline that tests our code, builds containers, and deploys working systems into lab and staging environments.

We are a small team, rapidly delivering solutions responsible for making one of the largest federated deployments of Kubernetes available as a service for many other teams to consume and use.

Where can you make an impact?

Your success will be measured by the stability and scalability of our platform as more products and applications are migrated to containerized architectures. The systems you design and build will enable first-to-market product features. You'll help influence groundbreaking video technology and your individual contributions have multi-million dollar impact to Comcast's bottom line.
