We are rapidly expanding the video engineering team at Twitch to deal with the challenging problem of being the 4th biggest consumer of bandwidth and one of the largest gaming experiences in the world. Here's a short list of current scale:
* Serve more than 150 million unique visitors per month * More than 2 million peak concurrent users * 16 billion minutes of video watched each month and growing * Anticipated scale year-over-year = 2.5x
In order to support this rapid expansion we're investing heavily in tools and automation to help our engineers be as happy and effective as possible. You will be joining a new team that will build the next generation of tools for Twitch's video software and infrastructure teams. These tools will help engineers work more efficiently and deploy more stable software. When you really nail it, they'll love the tools and be delighted every day.
We're kicking off lots of new projects here so you'll have an opportunity to design solutions and then implement your vision. You'll work very closely with the users of your solutions, as you'll be part of Twitch's video team. To be successful, you'll need to collaborate with your users and iterate rapidly on what you build.
The video tools team works with software development, devops, and operations teams to specify and develop the next generation of tools used by the organization and help the organization migrate to those tools.
* Collaborate with your customers (other engineers) to understand their tooling needs * Find opportunities on your own team and others to automate * Always strive toward continuous improvement and operational efficiency * Evaluate new systems rapidly to understand their strengths and weaknesses * Contribute to build vs. buy decisions * Co-own (with the team) projects delivering team goals * Write code in Go to support all of the above
