What PBS has for you:

We're a small team responsible for big projects. We're hiring an experienced Python engineer to build video products on the web. For this role "build" means:

  • Direct client architecture
  • Review code
  • Write code

The person in this role will be an engineer that works closely with the design and product management teams. Perks include: amazing co-workers, a humane work-life balance, and meaningful work. If you're interested in delivering content meant to "educate, inspire, entertain, and express the diversity of perspectives," please consider yourself a candidate.

What you have:

You want to share the challenge of delivering millions of video streams every week. You can speak to the interactions between the web clients and their upstream dependencies. You have architected these upstream dependencies in Python. An ideal candidate will have the following characteristics:

  • Enthusiastic: We work at a company that effects positive change. Let's act like it!
  • Collaborative: You're smart and communicative enough to mentor junior engineers. You can accept feedback from engineers that have had different experiences than you.
  • Humbly opinionated: You bring what you know to the table and are willing to learn more.
  • Lifelong learner: You're driven by an inquisitive nature.

Come work with us:

To us, "Senior" means that you've shepherded several projects by:

  • Making decisions on the tech stack and living with the consequences
  • Trailblazing a path through the tricky bits of code for both the product and less experienced developers
  • Coordinating engineers on your project and communicating with teams of dependency projects
