Job Description

Position profile

We’re looking for experienced backend developers to join our team. We want someone that thinks in terms of high-scale computing patterns, builds new web services in C# or Java faster than other developers believe is possible, naturally automates mundane tasks with Python, and loves the challenge of identifying and fixing performance and scalability problems. To be successful you need to have a true passion for shipping new software rapidly and delivering uptime. Ideal candidates will have some experience across the full stack, and can easily articulate how low level systems facilitate end-user experience.

Panopto is looking for the best of the best to join our world class engineering team. This is not another internal tools or support engineering position. Instead, you are expected to create, own and extend critical parts of the Panopto core product. If you’re interested in working on a rapidly evolving system loaded with interesting challenges and hard problems, we want to talk to you.
