Sr. Software Developer - Product

REF#: 30181


JOB TYPE: Full-Time Staff




Showtime Networks seeks an extraordinary developer with primary focus on backend Java (actually Groovy, but we'll happily teach you), with interest and experience in other languages and technologies.

This position is within the company's Product team - we are responsible for Showtime's stand-alone OTT streaming service and TV Everywhere service, Showtime Anytime. You will join an expanding product engineering team, building the next phase of our platform.

About You:

You are creative, self-motivated, a quick study, and willing to develop new skills while constantly improving existing abilities. You should also be a strong multi-tasker with solid time-management skills.

Showtime applications are available to millions of subscribers, so it's key that you write code that easily scales horizontally. We're building the future of television, and growing to support new platforms--and as we expand our services, we'll get to play with some great tech.

Key Technologies You'll Master:

  • Groovy + Spring

  • Mongo + Redis + Elastic Search

  • macOS, Linux, Amazon Web Services

  • Maven, Git, JIRA, Bamboo, etc.


    • 6+ years of development experience, ideally for high-availability consumer products
  • Deep understanding of POOP (Principles of Object Oriented Programming)

  • Background in web development and database development

  • Familiarity with web applications, architectures, and deployment

  • Degree in Computer Science (or equivalent) is preferred but not necessary

  • Experience Bonus Items:

  • Crafting high-volume clustered sites

  • Node, PHP/Zend, Rails or Django

    • iOS or Android development, either personally or professionally
  • Developing for game consoles or smart TV
