Our Ideal candidate
You are a superb communicator. You’ll need to be a confident communicator that is able to control a conversation, and be able to translate technical details to a non-technical audience.

You are eager to learn. We’d love for you to have expert level exposure to the technology that powers video streaming, but it’s not an absolute requirement.

You are a leader, but also a team player. You’ll be comfortable getting your hands dirty and helping our clients directly, but you’ll also be the day-to-day contact of our team of 20-plus streaming specialists who all have one unified goal at day’s end: providing a great experience for fans and streaming partners alike.
