Create the extraordinary.

Level: Manager (Supervisor)


Welcome to Peacock, the dynamic new streaming service from NBCUniversal. Here you’ll find more than a job. You’ll find a fast-paced, high-flying team for unique birds that want to be at the epicenter of technology, sports, news, tv, movies and more. Our flock works hard to connect people to what they love, each other and the world around them by creating shared experiences through culture-defining entertainment.
As a company, we embrace the power of difference. Our team is committed to creating an organization that champions diversity and inclusivity for all by curating content and a workforce that represents the world around us. We continue to challenge ourselves and the industry by being customer-centric, data-driven creatures of innovation.

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. 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. We build a video playback SDK which abstracts away all the complexities of DRM protected playback and download, analytics, and dynamic ad insertion so that our clients can focus on creating great user experiences. 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. Peacock is off to a flying start and we are looking for passionate, pragmatic software engineers, who value the opportunity for growth and impact, to join us.
