Job Description

At Warner Bros Discovery (WBD) we seek to ignite people's curiosity to engage, entertain and enlighten the world around them through amazing viewing experiences. The Streaming and Interactive Entertainment group builds the global streaming platform that includes a suite of applications and platform capabilities to support all our brands (in addition to WBD's Gaming business). This platform covers Search, Content Recommendations, Personalization, Catalog, Video, Subscriptions and more. We build for connected TVs, web, mobile phones, tablets, and consoles for a large footprint of products and brands (HBO Max, Discovery+, Food Network, CNN, Golf TV, MotorTrend, Eurosport, and many more). This is a growing, global product and engineering group crucial to WBD's future.


We are looking for a Software Development Engineer II to join our London based experimentation team.
• You understand a broad range of computer science concepts, and know how, when, and when not to use them. You can dive deep into a wide range of technical problems offering suggestions and feedback to your team. Your interest in computer science has not faded as you moved into a leadership role and you are still comfortable with technical details.
• You work with key stakeholders to deliver a high-quality product ensuring that software development is and remains under control and on track at all times.
• Your written and verbal communication skills are top notch. You can distil key points out of complex technical descriptions to share with non-technical stakeholders, adapting your language and style of communication depending on the audience. You communicate through data, dates, and facts using emotion judiciously to motivate and inspire.
• You lead by example and do not consider yourself above individual contributor work. You are comfortable teaching best practices by showing developers, not just telling people. Teams follow your lead because you are an inspirational leader, because you are right, and because you can show everyone high quality examples of your own work.
• You have demonstrated the ability to make great hiring decisions as is shown by the performance of developers on your team, and you are able to retain and develop the best developers.
• You have demonstrated the capacity to make decisions for more than one development team or functional area showing that your judgment is fungible.

• Experience in Experimentation and A/B testing.
• Proficient in Go and Python languages.
• Persistence and caching solutions such as PostgreSQL, Redis, Open Search.
• Micro-service based architectures using gRPC and Kafka for interservice communication.
• Asynchronous, non-blocking, functional style of programming and experience implementing with Go and Python
