Engineering Team | San Francisco
Crunchyroll is looking for world-class backend engineers to work on our suite of internal APIs. Example services include media and video, user account management, eCommerce, digital publishing, payments social media, and more. The ideal candidate is a full-stack LAMP engineer. Qualified candidates are highly technical and have a knack for building production-quality services for millions of users. They are professional software engineers with strong technical design principles, not hackers. They think before they code, they adhere to principles of software abstraction in API design, and they are cognizant of capabilities as well as limitations in what they build. They are not married to a specific language or implementation, but see the merits in using the right tool for the job.
