Technical Architect

  • Role: Product Development
  • Commitment: Fulltime
The mission of this awesome tribe at MEDIAGENIX is to enable renowned public and commercial radio and TV stations, on-demand platforms, OTT streamers and telcos to bring content to the viewer with our broadcast management system called WHATS’ON.

Do you love a good, invigorating challenge? We invite you to plunge into the media business, a world in a constant state of flux. Add a rapidly changing tech environment, and what do you get?
Life in the fast lane: leveraging state-of-the-art technologies and architectures to innovate the next-generation media business.  You are the architect whose vision and knowhow will ensure that our solutions give our customers a competitive edge in this era of disruption.

MEDIAGENIX is in the process of transitioning from an on-premise, complex and commercially successful WHATS’ON management software to a cloud-based, SaaS-platform running on modern technologies. The software is currently being built on AWS, leveraging a modern Java-based framework (Spring boot, Hibernate, …) with Kotlin as programming language, while the front-end is built on React (Ant Design). The solution has to be a cheap to maintain, efficient multi-tenant, geo-distributed cloud platform. While some fundamentals are well in place (Docker-based deployment, CICD, Kafka queuing, PostgreSQL), there are still plenty of challenges (Authentication/Authorization, cloud monetization, geo-distribution, scaling among others) - we are still at the beginning of a multi-year journey.
