the intersection of traditional cable video and IP engineering, this innovative video engineer will help develop the next generation of entertainment technologies for delivery to our customers. The focus will center around the end user equipment, and its control and functionality. Technically inclined engineers that prefer to make computers work for you and would like to influence the design of the video experiences of the future should apply. If you have ever looked at the diagnostic page on your cable box, streamed video from one computer in your house to another, or built yourself a web-app to manage your home automation system, you have already worked with some of the basic tools we are building upon. This is a dynamic and fast paced environment where you will not get bored.
