About the job

We're thrilled to announce that we're hiring to grow our team and our products! 3Play Media offers a truly unique opportunity to work in a small team of developers in a company that offers both a startup-minded size and culture while being robustly backed by a steady stream of customers and projects. Every day, our system processes hundreds of hours of video content, helping us to improve and expand the way people consume online media to make more of the web's video content accessible. We're also very excited to have a few brand-new products in our pipeline!

We're looking for an experienced web engineer to help us build and maintain our application.  You'll be working on a small team (3-5 engineers), with product and design to build features that are used by our contractors and internal operations team.

The 3Play engineering department is small and extremely collaborative.  Engineers are empowered to make their own decisions, and propose solutions to the challenges facing our stakeholders.  We use a standard 2 week sprint process, and regularly look for ways to improve our process via retrospectives.

  • Build and maintain features in our application using Ruby On Rails, React, and Angular (legacy features)
  • Work closely with the product and design team to identify optimal solutions to customer needs
  • Build front-end user interfaces for usage by 3Play employees and contractors.
  • Build and maintain complex back end workflows (we have a lot of asynchronous jobs in Resque!).

Position Requirements
  • 4+ years experience building web applications in a professional environment
  • Demonstrable aptitude with Ruby on Rails or another web development framework
  • Demonstrable aptitude with complex back end systems
  • Demonstrable aptitude building web user interfaces (React, Angular, jQuery)
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • Eagerness to learn and to share your knowledge
  • Good problem solving and debugging ability
  • Experience with web accessibility (WCAG, screen readers, and 508 compliance) is a plus.
