Software Engineer

Location: Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia


This position is no longer open.

Requisition Number: 769

External Description:

Software Engineer


As part of our Agile Development team, you will work with the latest technologies to develop Android Applications as part of a large system to deliver real-time video to a large and demanding customer base comprising Sporting Associations, Sports Betting, and Media companies. As a software engineer, your primary focus will be the design and development of Android Applications for video processing and streaming. This includes the implementation of AI algorithms on the phone, deployment of low-latency video streaming pipelines, and integration with cloud services.


This is not a typical Android Developer position for developing consumer apps. Instead, we exploit the advantages of Android OS and the underlying hardware for processing video. You will have the opportunity to work with new technologies in areas such as video processing and computer vision. Moreover, you will be working as part of a team with full-stack, mobile and Dev ops responsibilities owning the full software life-cycle and have exposure to a broad set of technologies.


These vacancies are a perfect match for a person who enjoys finding innovative solutions to technical challenges with opportunities to contribute broadly in a dynamic and collaborative team-based environment.  We are looking for good engineers who are hungry to learn continuously and take ownership of the tools and products that they work on in accordance with best practices as captured in the DevOps movement. We believe that a good engineer can move from one language to another and can learn new skills effortlessly if they are motivated by what they do. Don't let the language you work in now be a barrier to applying for the role you would like.

* Producing high quality, tested and maintainable code, using the best technologies for the problem at hand.
