Fullstack Engineer for Video Streaming Platform

Summary

Our client is an NYC startup on a mission to revolutionize the way we produce and consume adult video content online. They are looking for a brilliant Senior Developer to help quickly build out the next version of of their streaming website.

They have a larger than life founder who gave one of the most talked about TED talks ever, with millions of views. The company is at a stage where you will have direct access to the founder.

Their mission is to help the world fix its relationship with sex in order to make it a less taboo, healthier practice. They have a video streaming platform to this end.

Market Size

The video streaming market is an unique one because it is where a lot of the future of tech is being forged. Netflix, Disney and Amazon are battling it out for dominance and competing ferociously for talent.

By joining this startup you will have a unique opportunity to see the challenges of a video streaming platform as it scales, and you will gain architect level knowledge on the matter. This is potentially an invaluable asset in today's job market. When people say you should choose a company to work for based on the amount of learning you will be able to do, this is what they have in mind.

Company Size and Health

The company has fewer than 10 employees and $2 million in seed funding. With the founder's persona and relationships, they have an unique level of access to capital.

Savvy devs think like an investor. You can learn new things and meet new people working at any new job. You will learn significantly more, build a stronger network, and accelerate your career trajectory much faster by joining a successful, growing startup.

The only way to have a steep career trajectory is by either founding your own successful startup or by joining one. Successful startups grow much faster than they can hire good talent, so naturally there are always opportunities for you to pick up slack and provide additional value if you are so inclined. If you fill a responsibility vacuum well, you will most likely get promoted into that role, and you can keep that going until you rise to the C suite.
