Here you can fly to new heights!

Peacock is one of the newest entrants into the video streaming industry with an innovative model offering premium content at no cost to the user on the ad supported tier. We have already surpassed 34 million subscribers. Central to this success is an excellent user experience with fast loading times, high quality streams, and no playback failures.

The Core Video Team plays a crucial role in making this happen.

To achieve this wide array of functionality, while maintaining an easy to use interface, we value good coding practices, solid design patterns, and follow principles for sustainable technology solutions in an agile environment.

We’re always looking for the best ways to solve problems and we are looking for teammates who equally share our passion for problem solving.
