Overview

Build the Future of Entertainment

HBO Max is WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer (DTC) offering debuting in May 2020. With over 10,000 hours of curated premium content anticipated at launch, HBO Max will offer powerhouse programming for everyone in the home, bringing together HBO, a robust slate of new original series, key third-party licensed programs and movies, and fan favorites from WarnerMedia’s rich library, including Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes, and more.

Our DTC Technology team is laying the foundation for HBO Max, and we need highly motivated, uniquely skilled, and technically agile experts across a variety of disciplines to accomplish things that have never been done before.

The Job

HBO Max will bring together multiple brands to build the best streaming video customer experience. To complete in the SVOD(Streaming Video On Demand) space we must learn, and learn quickly. We are the team providing the experimentation platform that enables deep understanding of application changes and provides insights to drive impacts on user and developer experiences. Experimentation is critical to the launch of the HBO Max service and we are looking for framework-minded engineers to implement easy to use tooling for the Marketing, Product and Engineering teams.

We enable a data driven culture by building our internal experimentation platform and supporting the experimentation program for HBO Max. Assigning (allocating) our members into A/B test treatments, according to the allocation rules specified by the experiment creators, is foundational to reliable experimentation. Instead of hard-coding individual treatments independently, our platform will enable teams to define aspects of the product they are interested in experimenting on in terms of feature flags or parameters, then update them on-the-fly. You will help us build out UI Applications and JavaScript clients to lower the barrier to entry to these systems.
