Are you looking for a job where you can combine your passion for cinema with your outstanding programming skills? If so, this is YOUR perfect job! We are looking for a Software Engineer to join our Box Office team. This is the group responsible for providing the motion picture industry with systems that provide real-time, accurate reporting on box office revenues. You'll be part of the team who implements code to collect attendance and sales information from just about every movie screen in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico. Do you want to know, before anyone Universal Pictures or even Tom Cruise himself, how much Oblivion made on opening weekend? If so, come join the team that gets that data into the hands of movie executives worldwide!

Successful candidates must be willing to collaborate closely with the team, be responsible for accurate project work estimations and have a high level of attention to detail and a keen eye for design and usability.

We're looking for someone who has the following background and skill set:
  • BS in Computer Science

  • Web : HTML/CSS/Javascript(or JQuery a plus)

Some places say they have a fun environment, but at Rentrak, we mean it! Here are some of the things we enjoy at Rentrak:
  • Our customer base includes ABC, Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, and many other industry giants.
  • We manage more data each year than Visa, Mastercard and Discover combined.
  • We're big enough to reach a national audience, but small enough that every developer

's contribution makes a difference. Our industry and customer base is growing, providing both opportunities and stability. We don't just shuttle data, but develop predictive models and analyze trends. We've had fun events like coffee tastings, tailgate parties, renting out a bowling alley for the night, sponsoring a Hood to Coast team, and laser tag. What would you like to do? If that wasn't enough, Rentrak is located in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Portland is known for its outdoor activities, creative food culture, and lively arts scene. Rentrak also has easy access to Portland's mass transit system, and has a large number of bike commuters.

We understand that programmers are programmers, and we're more interested in smart, motivated people than in experience in a particular language. We also understand it doesn't take a 70 hour week to produce a good product. Sometimes less is more.

We work in nice open development areas so the developers can share their brilliant ideas, learn from each other, and work together to solve tough problems. We have extensive custom libraries to streamline our work, and our code base is kept well factored and filled with unit tests.

All of our developers work in-house.
