Elemental Technologies is the leading provider of video processing
solutions that enable multiscreen content delivery. We are actively seeking the
best and brightest candidates to join our team.
The mission of this job is to help Elemental perfect the media experience by building cloud video processing technology on a fast-track schedule, and to collaborate effectively as a trusted member of a driven, innovative team.
As a software cloud engineer III, you will:
  • Own the process of taking new technology through the entire development cycle – from inception, through QA, to delivery and approval by the customer
  • Provide highly responsive technical assistance to the customer support team, translating customer requests into functional code
  • Work closely with the entire team to complete release cycles
  • Work directly with our partners on the implementation of new features
The successful implementation of this position requires, at a minimum:
  • 5+ years of professional software development experience
  • Developing cloud-based software on Amazon Web services (EC2, S3, CloudFront, etc)
  • Expertise in Ruby on Rails or another web application framework
  • Deep understanding of MySQL, Postgres or MS SQL
  • Strong HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Prior experience developing high-performance, multi-threaded, system-level software
  • Ability to travel domestically on occasion
Additional strengths include experience with:
  • Audio and video codecs
  • Open source video tools and APIs, such as FFMPEG or mediainfo
  • Developing software for distributed or clustered systems
In addition to mastery of the requisite technical skills, we expect you to be:
  • Self-directed: you take high-level descriptions, boil them down to a technical task list and then execute it, all with minimal oversight
  • Team-oriented: you share information frequently and effectively, and are willing and able to collaborate
  • Flexible: rapid change, steep learning curves and tight deadlines are taken as challenges, not obstacles
  • Innovative: you generate new and creative approaches to problems
  • Ambitious: you come to work every day with the desire to learn and excel
  • A comprehensive thinker: you see the big picture and at the same time, focus on the part. You understand the architecture and can project how adding a feature will affect the outcome
  • Dedicated: of your own volition, you contribute above and beyond the strict requirements of the job because you want to see the team and company succeed
  • Honest, with integrity: you don’t cut corners ethically. You earn trust and maintain confidences, do what is right (not just what is politically expedient) and speak plainly and truthfully
We offer a spirited, stimulating and performance-driven environment that requires you to bring your “A” game every day. In addition to working with world-class colleagues, benefits include:
  • competitive salaries
  • excellent health care plans
  • matching 401k program
  • incentive stock options
  • a ZipCar allowance for personal use
  • annual TriMet passes
  • bike-friendly facilities
  • a copious supply of fabulous food, both in the kitchen and at our weekly Lunch-and-Learns
Our headquarters are located in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon with easy access to all the amenities the central city has to offer. If you have a penchant for big dreams, the engine to get there and a passion for doing it the right way, you owe it to yourself to check out opportunities at Elemental.
