Remote working

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Remote working on video / audio pipelines, containers and codecs in C / C++

Join a distributed Linux development team working on low level software in the area of video, audio and multimedia. Their work includes media processing pipelines and advanced audio and video codecs. They are seeking a developer with expertise in this area.

You will bring:

  • Significant C and C++ software development skills with OOAD.
  • An understanding of popular Linux audio/video frameworks and tools such as Phonon, GStreamer and VLC.
  • Knowledge of codec development, as applicable to popular open source Linux audio/video codecs such as VP9 and Xiph as well as proprietory codecs for Linux such as MPEG.
  • Knowledge of relevant real-time streaming protocols such as HLS, MPEG-DASH, RTP / RTSP.
  • Some interest in open source software development, ideally including past contributions.

The team is distributed, and hence this role is fully remote. It is also full time. Salary depends on relevant experience and expertise.

Candidates seeking a role of greater responsibility in this area, and commensurate remuneration, will likely demonstrate proportionally greater evidence of past contributions to open source.
