  • Hi. I am Guillermo, the hiring manager for this position and backend developer lead of StreamingGuide. Our mission is to propel to become the premier streaming guide worldwide.
    We predominantly utilize Golang and Kubernetes, interfacing with GRPC APIs from teams such as Content (housing our extensive database) and Martech (for ad display). Additionally, we work with databases like Scylla and Elasticsearch, ensuring seamless operation even under high loads exceeding 5k requests per second.

    About the Role

    Currently, we're tackling challenges like integrating video ads, fortifying against scraping, enhancing response times, and optimizing the click-through rate for our recommender engine. As part of our team, you'll contribute by coding in Go, gradually assuming more responsibilities including infrastructure management such as monitoring, deployment, and debugging.

    The hiring process

    Following an initial chat with our Talent team, you'll engage with either myself or Martin, our VP of Engineering, to discuss cultural alignment and assess mutual fit. If we proceed, a coding challenge awaits, a collaborative 1.5-hour session where we'll tackle fictional functionalities together. You will share your screen and code on your machine. If needed, we can also provide you with a coding environment in linux. The last one will be with our CTO Dominik.

    What We're Looking For

    We are looking for people that have proven experience in Go, can deploy and manage a live system with its monitoring logging and that have some experience debugging production issues.

    What we provide

    You are not just a task execution machine. I (and the rest of justwatch) want to support your career growth as a developer. We will be working together and supporting in any way.We also have a nice office (feel free to visit us) where you can find me almost everyday. We will provide you with anything that is required to fulfill our needs.
