Backend Software Developer Job Description


At LiveLike we build things that challenge the typical concept of what it means to watch live sports. So it's only natural for us to specialize in creating one of the best platforms to watch live sports in virtual reality. For that to happen though, we need a team of developers and designers that are not only the some of the best, but who are comfortable working outside of the status quo.

We’re looking for the newest member of our Infrastructure team. Someone who not only specializes in Django & AWS, but someone who brings the same fire to work everyday that we do. If you think you’ve got the skills and are up for the challenge then consider this your calling.


What You’ll Be Doing



  • Collaborating with product, design, and development teams to plan new features

  • Influencing the design of our web and mobile SDK’s

  • Building and deploying customer-facing HTTP API’s

  • Optimizing our API’s along many axes: developer friendliness, cost effectiveness, robustness, and reliability

  • Automating tools and processes that our team can rely on for daily development, testing, and release management

  • Releasing projects in 4 continents to meet the needs of our clients—the world's top leagues and broadcasters

  • Growing the platform to millions of concurrent users through solid architecture choices and design principles

  • Monitoring always-on globally-distributed systems armed a variety of tools and insights


Our Preferred Qualifications



  • 3+ years experience as a Backend Engineer

  • Expertise with Python 3, Django 2, and Django REST Framework

  • Comfortable deploying applications on AWS, and have a strong working knowledge of EC2, RDS and S3

  • Informed opinions on API design and library development as an author and a developer

  • Driven to automate your processes and document your work

  • Developed complex software systems at scale with production-quality deployment, monitoring and reliability

  • Experienced with live or on-demand video streaming

  • Familiar with cloud orchestration software like Terraform and Ansible

  • Disciplined with your time and energy


What Would Be Cool



  • We’re the kind of team that can banter one minute and crunch the next, we’d love for you to be able to do the same

  • You’ve got a strong sense of personal drive and when tasked to solve something tricky will move forward at full force

  • In the same breath, you believe your team is your most valuable resource and you won’t hesitate to collaborate with them

  • You take initiative and don’t assume someone else will move things along, you pull in new work and you follow up on work in progress

  • An unbridled passion for sports, gaming, food, otters, or anything really. We appreciate passion…

  • You’re a techie at heart and you want to talk to us about the latest stuff you saw on Product Hunt, Gamasutra, Medium, ESPN, etc, etc...

  • You understand the “No-Assholes” policy

  • You’re not afraid of an open, candid, and respectful work environment


What We Offer



  • Competitive salary

  • An opportunity to work in a variety of domains

  • Exposure to diverse clients and projects

  • Be part of a rapidly expanding, dynamic, and committed company

  • Work in a global and intellectually stimulating environment
