Software Engineer Java - SCHEDULE (m/f/div.)


As Software Engineer Java (m/f/div.) for Schedule you will work on the technical planning, implementation and future of our program scheduler and playout service. Scheduler mostly uses Java (Red5 / Tomcat) but we also integrate other command line tools and programs like ffmpeg or nginx. With Schedule you assist customers from various media sectors to create new and interesting live channels on different platforms such as Twitch or Youtube.

About us:

Make.TV provides cloud-native live video streaming and management. At a scale and speed previously not possible, we enable more content to be created and distributed - between content creators, producers and broadcasters. Our Live Video Cloud simplifies the production, organization and routing of live video sources. With Schedule, we offer a cloud-based program scheduler and playout solution, which enables content owners to create TV programs with a mix of pre-produced content and acquired live or near-live streams. 
After successfully securing Series A funding in the US, last year we were acquired by LTN Global, a company specializing in ultra-low latency transport of live video streams over the public internet. 
Several broadcasting, media and eSports brands already use our SaaS propositions successfully. They can manage complex workflows incorporating a wide array of video sources, such as mobile devices, cameras and social media platforms, but also professional sources and traditional broadcast infrastructure. In addition, they are able to deliver these streams - in parallel - to broadcast platforms and affiliates, as well as to social media and OTT platforms (i.e. Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch etc.). 
We are looking for a talented software engineer java (m/f/div.) to join our Schedule engineering team and contribute to the technical planning, implementation and future of our program scheduler and playout service.
