  • ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

    There are no single types of people whom we employ at Comcast Technology Solutions (CTS). Our strength is in our employees, from all different backgrounds, united by a passion for delivering compelling, smart solutions to customer problems.

     

    About the team

     

    The CTS Professional Services team works with our customers to build and deploy solutions that create engaging video experiences with our “Video Platform” product. The core product is built by CTS in Seattle, and we are responsible for getting it delivered to our UK, Europe, and APAC clients. We work with many types and styles of integrations as we work with our customers to integrate with their unique workflows and solve their business problems.

     

    We are a multi-disciplinary team with 10-15 engineers working across our vast platform on multiple projects. We value transparency, accountability, shared responsibility and teamwork. We’re focused on our customers, and CTS's mission is to provide innovative, premium video solutions to global broadcasters, content providers and operators.

     

    Most engineers work across the entire stack, although many have expertise with particular technologies and domains. We deploy to production often and have full ownership of releases, and the tools we use.

     

    As an organisation, data is critical to us, and we strive to be data-driven in all aspects of our work, from both a technical and commercial perspective.
