Hey there, hope you're having a fab day 👋
Few important things first: we pay very well (salary + stock options) + we try to be super quick and responsive in the hiring process.
Synthesia is the global leader in synthetic media. Our vision is to build the first fully programmable video generation platform and help everyone transform non-video content into video.
Synthesia is already working with some of the world’s biggest companies and celebrities such as David Beckham and Lionel Messi, BBC, EY, Facebook, McDonalds, Amazon and WPP.
Our Messi campaign collaboration also received a Cannes Lion Award in 2021 and we’ve raised more than $16M so far from names like Mark Cuban, First Mark Capital, Seedcamp and more.
About the Position
In this position you'll join our small and extremely talented product team that is building the future of programmable video. Our team is working on our core product, Synthesia STUDIO.
You'll have a chance to work on scaling our current, fast-growing product and shape some of the next products in our pipeline. This will be a dream job for you if you enjoy deep, uninterrupted work. Some of the projects our full-stack engineers work on include:
building modular codebase that can be reused in frontend application and video rendering processes
making sure that each editing operation is executed in under 50ms + some optimized even further
building custom video player / editor
defining video structure to support more and more elements + complex math operations (animations, shapes, text, images, videos …)
Our tech stack is: Python, C++, React, node.js, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, AWS.
💡Important to know: We have a fast yet non-hacky development style. We work strictly with product managers who have a technical background. As a result, we do not overwhelm engineers with unrealistic expectations/requirements, and we can therefore move forward much faster.
