Whip Media Group powers a market leading enterprise platform that provides a broad range of integrated services, enhanced by unique analytics, that enables the world’s leading entertainment organizations to more efficiently manage, distribute and monetize TV & Movie content. Whip Media Group has offices in Los Angeles, New York City and London.

The Whip Media Group engineering team is growing and we're looking for a back-end Software Engineer to join! In this role, you will be working in partnership with a small development team on the design, development, enhancements and maintenance of mission-critical web-based software for major film studios, TV broadcasters, and cable operators in a high-energy, start-up environment.

This position will be focused across our CVM Insights product. CVM Insights is an analytics and data visualization platform that delivers both a standalone research and reporting experience as an integrated experience with the rest of the platform.  The work will consist of building back-end services and APIs that drive the front-end data visualization and analytics experience.  There will be a heavy focus on data and you will work with both our front-end development team as well as our data engineering team.
The enterprise team at Whip is primarily a Java, Spring, JavaScript and PostgreSQL shop, but we use a wide variety of other technologies like Python and AWS.  Our platform helps leading media and entertainment companies operate more efficiently with greater visibility and control in the new world of digital distribution.

What will you do?
  • Design and write new APIs and data processing code in Java or Python
  • Create new data models to handle our ever-increasing data volume
  • Devise algorithms to handle data synchronization across distributed systems
  • Write technical requirements and design documents
  • Work closely with a cross-functional team on the development of our new platforms and internal tools
  • Design and implement ETL processes that integrate with a variety of customer and third-party data sources
What do you need?
  • Bachelors or equivalent degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field, or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years of experience with software design and development skills in Java.
  • Experience with Spring and core Spring components (especially Spring Boot, Spring Security, Spring Data and Spring Data REST)
  • Familiarity with agile development
  • Experience and comfort working in a startup or fast moving environment
  • Experience with data modeling, in both SQL (ideally PostgreSQL) and non-relational technologies
  • Experience with data warehousing, ideally with Amazon Redshift, a plus
  • Experience with data pipelines and ETL concepts
  • Experience with off-the-shelf BI tools such as Pentaho, Looker, or Tableau
  • Experience with AWS APIs and services a plus (s3, lambda, SNS, SQS)
  • Experience with Web Services (REST) a plus
  • Experience with a scripting language, ideally Python, a plus
  • Experience with git and unit testing

An Insider's view of Whip Media Group

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The LA office definitely has a relaxed vibe. There's music playing, interesting conversations happening, and you can usually find our CEO Rich roaming around the office. There's also a theater for movie screenings, and when you feel like hopping off Slack and interacting IRL, you're sure to find someone to talk to (and something to eat) in the kitc

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The most important part of my job is hiring and retaining great people, so I make myself available via any method (Slack, email, walks, meals, etc.) to anyone with questions, frustrations, or suggestions. I often spend 25-30% of my work week in 1:1 discussions. They’re where I get my best ideas about how to make Whip Media an amazing place to work.
