JustWatch is an international movie marketing startup based in Berlin, founded in October 2014 by an experienced and successful team with world class knowlegde in marketing, product and AdTech.
Our vision is to connect movie fans with their favourite content worldwide.
What we do:
We are building a search engine for online streaming - so you can find out where to watch movies and tv-shows legally on providers like Netflix, Hulu, or iTunes.
Our business model is to help movie studios advertise to the right audience. Therefore we are building a fully integrated AdTech stack to be able to target those fans. Our goal is to make movie marketing a lot more efficient for advertisers and a lot less annoying and more valuable for users. Hundreds of thousands of users already enjoy our content discovery and we’re on track to be the largest streaming search engine worldwide in 2016.
We are looking for new technology team members who want to learn how to make distributed systems reliable, fault tolerant and highly available. On top, we’re looking for a strong service attitude and good communication skills to continuously improve developer experience with fast builds, quick (canary) deployments, ChatOps, great metrics and sane alerting at a low false-positive rate.
Curiosity, drive and passion are the core ingredients we are looking for. We only want people who are willing to constantly learn through challenging themselves and others and who just love getting things done - because done is better than perfect. You don’t need to have work experience in Go yet, but you should have had some exposure to the language already.
JustWatch is a tech and data driven company at heart, with strong additional skills in business, marketing and sales. Our technology stack is based on a distributed backend in Go(lang), PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch and Docker, serving AngularJS Web and Hybrid Apps. All Services are highly available, interfacing via REST APIs and based on the 12factor methodology running at AWS.
Currently we are at eleven of twelve points in the Joel Test, striving for all of them.
We love challenging goals. We are questioning everything. We are always learning. And we are excellent in execution. We believe in the 80/20 rule and try to apply common sense and pragmatism to everything, so we are looking for people with business sense and a no bullshit attitude.
If you share these values and want to commit your time and passion to us, great - we’d like to meet you. Just write us a short mail and tell us, what motivates you and how you think you can help us achieve our goals. We are not interested in a perfect CV or extensive work experience.
If you are not sure if you might be a fit for us, drop us a line anyway.
