The Live Pipeline (Video) team is responsible for ensuring that Hulu’s customers have a reliable Live TV experience and are able to enjoy live events in high quality and with high availability. The team has ownership for the different renditions of video - everything from mobile to TV. They are responsible for the packaging of content, both DRM and protocol delivery formats – delivering video to an iOS device is much different than delivering video to an XBOX One.

We deal with a wide variety of channels, each with their own quirks, and have to build systems to keep the streams flowing 24/7, despite these complexities. We are looking for a talented Software Developer to help us build the most sophisticated, reliable video delivery engine in the industry.
