Job Description

Our DTC team is laying the foundation for HBO Max, and we need highly motivated, uniquely skilled, and technically agile experts across a variety of disciplines to accomplish things that have never been done before.

The Job

HBO Max is a multiplatform experience, where consumers can watch their favorite shows either at home or on the go. A large architecture of systems for curation, behavioral understanding and operational visibility supports the enormous content library available on HBO Max. Consistency of data submission across each platform is essential to properly understand business impacts and operational performance. To enable standardized experimentation and data collection, we are building out libraries that will unify the modelling, collection, formatting and submission of events to our data pipeline. You will lead a team for the cross organization effort for data consistency by architecting SDKs that unify multiple forms of data submission across all platforms available for HBO Max.

• Collaborate with multiple departments, including Data Engineering, services, and customer facing clients to achieve uninterrupted data communication.
• Continually improve and enforce code and design standards for the engineering department.
• Apply your technical acumen daily. You don't code full time but you love reading code, design docs and collaborating on software architectures.
• Collaborate with product owners, designers, sr engineers and management on the Engineering roadmap.
• Work with technical project managers to track progress and ensure goals are being met.
