at ConnecTV in Emeryville, CA   —   Jul 14, 2014   |  
Overview
ConnecTV is a whole new way to watch TV - a free social TV app that lets you play along with friends LIVE on your laptop or tablet while you watch your favorite television show or sporting event. Here's how it works: Your TV is up there. Your ConnecTV app is down here on your second screen. ConnecTV identifies your show and instantly syncs on your tablet, PC or Mac so you can...hold viewing parties and chat with friends. Play games for prizes. And get more info and news about your favorite entertainment and sports stars. Sync… Share… Play..

ConnecTV is one of the fastest growing and most innovative companies in the Bay Area. We are solving the fundamental problems that viewers have been facing since the rise of social media: how can I talk about what I’m watching with my friends? How can I share an incredible moment I’ve just experienced with the people in my life that weren’t there to share it with me?

Our founders are well known in the technology, media and marketing world. Together they bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure Connectv will be the winner in this space.
Responsibilities
We're building an ad-driven, direct-to-consumer ConnecTV product, and a platform on which it runs. Our platform must scale to millions of concurrent users and be usable by third party developers.
The ideal candidate will have impeccable programming ability in a variety of languages, along with strong experience building scalable, reliable, well designed web services taking maximum advantage of open source tools and the principles of REST.
They should thrive on distributed systems problems, deep linux systems hacking, orscripting of system administration tasks.
Experience
But beyond technical toolbox, we're primarily concerned with your desire to learn, your track record of doing so, and your ability to teach others what you know. You should have an opinion, and be able to articulate and defend it.
This is an amazing opportunity to join our team at this early stage of the company as we transition out of stealth mode. Nothing is set in stone with our platform, so there is ample room to put your stamp on our technology.
Education
We would love to see an advanced degree in Computer Science or related field, but will also consider applications from self-taught programming geniuses who are not degreed.
