The Team

The Emerging Products & Platforms team at CNN is driven by a shared commitment to put our users at the center of the experiences we build and to push the boundaries on what an exceptional news experience can be. We believe that success is driven by the combined ability of content, design, product, and technology to spark connection, fulfill utility, and build community.

The Job

Build New Businesses in News – Great stories make a rich, dimensional world. We are building a platform that elevates diverse voices in media; a space that doesn’t limit or extract for cheap engagement. We are building technology that compresses and expands to preserve the full range of content and creates the trust that leads people to tell stories, to contribute ideas, and to build their community

· You know what makes systems fast, blazing fast, or just average. You have a deep understanding of scaling best practices.

· You write clean, clear code that others can easily parse, maintain and enhance.

· You know how to choose the right technology for the job and can spot when a framework will save you time, when it will get in the way, and when it isn’t worth the trouble.

· You are comfortable talking about code, dealing with uncertainty, prioritizing technical and non-technical tasks, and exhibiting leadership in a dynamic environment.

The Values:

· Trust makes teams fast & fun

· Focus, set clear milestones, change course if things aren’t moving fast enough

· Don’t argue about the idea, argue about how to test it quickly

· Start, iterate, and simplify. Nobody has the right answer, you discover it

· Be an owner, don’t wait for permission, communicate and consider your impact on others, the company and the culture

· Leverage our strengths (like: when risk is low, move fast and take big swings)

The Essentials

· 5+ years of software engineering experience in at least one of these languages: Go, Scala, Python, C++, Java, or C#

· Experience working on resilient, scalable backend systems

· Knowledgeable about microservices, concurrency, REST and RPC patterns

· Experience working with a few databases, relational or non-relational

· Experience working cross-functionally with engineering and non-engineering teams

· Experience running A/B tests to iterate on a product

· Experience with data processing such as Apache Beam, BigQuery, or Spark
