  • Advanced networking skills (e.g. OSPF, BGP, SDN)
  • Ability to use test equipment to analyse MPEG streams

Developer

We are looking for developers with a difference. Our unique approach means that, as well as deployed software products which we support, maintain and develop, we have a need to provide reactive, project-based development work to meet specific customer integration requirements.

A project developer will require:

  • Flexibility to adapt to new techniques and languages at short notice
  • Creativity and problem-solving ability
  • The ability to apply yourself to different and new problems throughout the day
  • A desire to work on every part of the chain from solution design through to support

  • Strong skills in Javascript

Ideally developers will have:

  • Knowledge of websockets, realtime media transport and IP networking
  • Strong skills in Javascript (Node.js), databases (MongoDB) and web technologies (HTML, CSS)
  • Experience with other languages like PHP, C++ or Bash/shell scripting
  • Strong communication skills and confidence

You will become familiar with and work with (it's a bonus if you're interested in):

  • The technical details of HTTP, TLS certificates, IP networking, CentOS (Linux) servers, UDP vs TCP, multicast vs unicast and optimisation
  • Video compression, transportation and analysis including judging quality and delivery
  • Integrating with and finding the commonalities between different devices from different vendors to provide a common interface

This is a great opportunity for a motivated developer to go beyond a traditional software development role and get involved in end-to-end systems from inception to customer support.
