The MediaHound team uses design thinking and technology know-how to solve the biggest problems in entertainment.

We’re experts with experience in film and television, enterprise application development, and the wild world of digital ad agencies. We’re also ardent fans who love geeking out on the galaxies of media that matter to us.

WE'RE HIRING

Open Positions

Want to build something beautiful?

Love APIs? Love movies and music?

iOS Engineer

Want to build something beautiful?

We do. That’s why we’re using design and technology to change the consumer experience for all entertainment content.

MediaHound is hiring an iOS Engineer who will tap into the most current device and product design standards to build iPhone and iPad applications that users love enough to keep on their home screens and open every day.

We are currently a tight-knit team of eight and this new round of hiring, spurred on by our Series A raise, will bring the count to twelve.

Our API powers incredible products that allow users to find, discuss, collect, curate, and consume music, books, movies, games, and TV shows from all the legal distribution services. The application you build will sit on top of this epic Pangaea of an API, helping people make connections between and around content that were impossible before. This means your app will help people search for, share, and discover their new favorite movie and that song they can’t stop humming.

The math is pretty simple at MediaHound: your application code + the MediaHound platform = limitless user happiness.

The iOS Engineer will collaborate with our CTO, Lead iOS Engineer, and product/design team to achieve excellent results through our agile process.

Our new iOS Engineer needs experience with Objective-C, the iOS SDK, and the MVC paradigm. Please feel free to point us to an app you have built in your application.

Our team operates on agile best practices for planning and managing development on a two week sprint cycle in JIRA. We want everyone to contribute to the product and planning conversation so strong opinions about the web, entertainment, and UX are encouraged.

MediaHound is part of the USC Viterbi Startup Garage, an accelerator that combines the expertise of USC’s Engineering School with guidance from a renowned venture capital firm, one of Hollywood’s top talent agencies, and a host of other mentors from the Los Angeles technology community. Previous partners on the platform have included Miramax, AFI, and Tribeca Film.

Platform Engineer

Love APIs? Love movies and music? Let’s make entertainment discovery better together.

MediaHound is hiring a salaried, full-time Platform Engineer who will collaborate with our team to build a comprehensive database of entertainment metadata and availability information. Our data platform powers incredible products that allow users to search, share, and discover across movies, books, music, TV shows, and games. Software engineering and web services experience are required but the most important criterion for this role is a strong desire and ability to learn.

We are currently a tight-knit team of eight and this new round of hiring, spurred on by our Series A raise, will bring the count to twelve.

    Our stack includes:
  • AWS
  • Neo4j
  • Java (Maven, Spring, etc.)
  • REST
  • Elasticsearch

Building on sound software engineering principles, this person will gain domain expertise in entertainment and solve some problems specific to this space. Our current team members are experts on Neo4j and Elasticsearch. Experience with those technologies is not required so look forward to learning more about them if you come on board at MediaHound.

Our system ingests a variety of feed and APIs so experience with and an interest in web services is required. The Platform Engineer will be reading documentation on and ingesting external APIs, working with our internal API, and applying concepts like REST. An appreciation for performance and high availability is a plus. As we pursue an ambitious technology roadmap, the Platform Team will work on some of the most compelling challenges in content metadata and discovery. If recommendation systems, matching algorithms, system architecture, and high availability all excite you then you should absolutely apply for this role.

Our team operates on agile best practices for planning and managing development on a two week sprint cycle in JIRA. We want everyone to contribute to the product conversation so strong opinions about the web, entertainment, and UX are encouraged.
