Job DescriptionJob description Company Overview

Every great story has a new beginning. We're excited to announce that Discovery and WarnerMedia have combined to become Warner Bros. Discovery. WBD is a premier global media and entertainment company offering audiences the world’s most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film, sports, news, streaming and gaming. We’re home to the world’s best storytellers, creating world-class products for consumers. From brilliant creatives to technology trailblazers and beyond, join us as we step into the next chapter.

Your New Role…

As a Staff Software Developer, CNN Connected TV Devices, you will lead technical efforts to build out world-class connected TV streaming video applications across an ever-growing number of devices and platforms, in order to bring CNN to our users!

In this role, you’ll have technical ownership of major features and product initiatives for our connected TV applications. Your main focus will be on shipping: everything from brand new features, to platform ports, to bug fixes. You’ll be successful in this role if you can take an undefined problem statement, work with a cross functional team to turn it into a concrete, well- scoped technical plan, and then deliver a high quality solution in a consistent and predictable way. This requires strong technical and non-technical communication skills, and deep knowledge of the full connected TV app development lifecycle.

In this role, you’ll be expected to make significant individual contributions, but you’ll also act as a technical leader on the team. You’ll mentor and guide other developers in their day to day work. You’ll ensure the team is following high quality software engineering practices - continuous integration, effective test coverage, automated testing, positive and constructive code reviews, and low friction development environments. Finally, as a leader in the engineering organization, you’ll model and evangelize a positive, inclusive, and constructive way of working for your team.

Your Role Accountabilities…
  • Make significant, high quality code contributions to the project.

  • Lead discussions, create documentation, or create work tickets to ensure other developers on the team have enough detail, context, and direction on their current and future projects to make progress autonomously.

  • Lead or participate in technical design and discovery activities within your team to support product roadmap definition.

  • Contribute to high level planning, roadmap definition, and architecture design with teams across the organization.

  • Provide technical mentorship to other developers- provide positive, constructive code reviews; teach engineering best practices and debugging techniques; give pointers to educational resources; etc.

Qualifications & Experience...
  • Significant experience in building, testing, shipping, and maintaining consumer applications.

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, and experience in effectively communicating with both technical and non-technical job functions within an organization.

  • Demonstrated success in working with a team to deliver high quality software in an iterative, predictable, and sustainable way.

  • Experience developing connected TV applications preferred

  • Experience developing an application in a resource constrained environment (e.g limited GPU, CPU, Memory) preferred

  • Demonstrated success in evangelizing for high quality software development practices on a team - appropriate test coverage, automation, CI/CD, etc preferred

  • Demonstrated success in rapidly learning new technologies, languages, or frameworks preferred

  • Experience with the Lightning framework, WebGL, or a modern web framework (Angular, Vue, Svelte, React, etc) preferred

  • Experience with Typescript preferred

  • Passionate about performance and creating amazing experiences for CNN users preferred
