As a Software Engineer, you will be responsible for the creation of APIs for third party integration with our video search systems. Specifically, you will be involved in the development of new features for services through working with highly sophisticated proprietary video analysis technologies.
Working as part of a dedicated and talented team, you will primarily work on a large-scale application used by major global media companies. You will implement, test, debug and allocate new API methods, as well as plan and deploy new or updated systems.
Liaising with other teams across the company, you will ensure that projects are aligned and an integrated service is delivered to customers.
- Strong PHP skills
- Knowledge of MVC-type application frameworks, in particular Zend Framework
- Familiarity with database concepts, especially MySQL
- Knowledge of Linux and/or UNIX environments
- A degree or a master's in an IT, scientific or engineering discipline or equivalent experience in the IT industry
As a Software Engineer, you must have exceptional problem solving skills and a passion for new technology. Articulate and dynamic, you should also possess an innovative mind-set and great team player attributes.
Familiarity with dynamic languages such as Python would be beneficial to your application, as would knowledge of version control and/or source code management tools, especially Git. Experience with configuration management and/or code testing and deployment tools would also be desirable, as would knowledge of video and/or audio technologies, including common tools such as FFMPEG. Familiarity with C, C++, Objective C or Java would be equally favourable.
