Sr. Software Engineer

Remote Englewood, CO

The STARZ Data Products & Engineering team is seeking a software engineer who’s passionate about drawing a thin line from data to insight and exposing that insight to internal users to support important business decisions. You’ll be building applications that give internal users insight into what audiences to target, how original and licensed content is likely to perform in the Starz ecosystem and beyond, and helping us to integrate disparate signals into a clear picture of where the organization is at and where we can go. We’re building out a robust and consistent data acquisition system with a growing portfolio of sources and sinks which enable other teams to analyze, view and report on the data. Our users range from extremely technical (providing us with models to run, and wanting tables or files in return) to less technical (providing inputs via a UI or spreadsheet and expecting results displayed in-line or in a report). As part of our work to enable the organization to make decisions with data, we’re building out a data processing framework for use by internal analyst teams that lets them harness the power of the data engineering technology we build. This is an opportunity to exercise your technical skills with a highly skilled team from a variety of diverse backgrounds while helping every aspect of our business to be more efficient and more data-driven.

Full-time remote candidates will be considered.
