Job Description

Comcast Technology Solutions' purpose is to be the most valued partner to those leading the future of media and technology. Leveraging the most complete portfolio of capabilities, unmatched expertise and Comcast's unrivaled infrastructure, we help customers thrive in a rapidly evolving multi-platform world by powering extraordinary experiences to every screen. If you share a passion for contributing your talents to empowered teams, possess an entrepreneurial spirit and are driven by imagination and possibilities, we want to develop and grow your career at Comcast Technology Solutions.

On the Comcast VIPER Player Platform team, you'll have a direct impact on the customer experience of millions of users across multiple types of devices. From the latest X1 Set-Top Boxes, to the Xfinity Stream app running on customer's Smart TVs, to all modern desktop browsers, you'll face the challenges of delivering highly flexible, re-usable software to provide the premium experience our customers expect.

What you'll do:

Day to day, you'll develop software to solve challenging problems of video playback, implement flexible analytics and advertising requirements, and drive the accessibility and localization of our products. You'll use (and learn) TypeScript-a cutting-edge superset of JavaScript which developers from any background will find accessible, fun, and productive. Push your code to our internal GitHub Enterprise and watch our containerized, modern CI system test and deploy it to pre-production environments. Frequent production deployments mean your contributions quickly give value to the user and business. Our flexible, engineering and customer-driven software process means you'll understand the "why" of what we work on-and we'll trust you to deliver the "how". Besides our developer-friendly tooling and process, you'll work hands-on with industry experts in streaming video technologies, content protection, advertising, and data science.

About the Environment:

Experience a fantastic work environment with flexible hours / remote work options, a safe and welcoming environment for people of all backgrounds, and many perks. Stuck on a hard problem? Play foosball or vintage video games while the solution percolates in your mind. Or visit the gym just downstairs, all in our conveniently located office just a block away from Union Station.
