Who are we?

Tiledmedia is a young Rotterdam-based start-up creating the world’s most advanced solution for streaming Virtual Reality and panoramic video. Our customers are major media and telecom industry players located worldwide, online VR video platforms, as well as developers of VR software in general. Our ClearVR solution consists of two major components: a client-side SDK for streaming low-latency and very high-quality VR, and an AWS-based content encoding and packaging service. On top of these core products we’ve developed our own VR and panoramic video player to demonstrate the power of our streaming solution. Located in Het Industriegebouw in Rotterdam we’re growing quickly and looking for new talent to join us.

Who are we looking for?

As an experienced software engineer you have an enthusiastic, proactive and passionate attitude and a ‘can do’ mentality. You’ve got a burning desire to get the last drop of performance out of a system and are eager to develop, test and prove new algorithms. You’re always on the lookout for new and challenging problems to tackle. As a team player, you like to help, and be helped by, others. Above all, you’re excited about VR!

To be successful in this role, you:

  • Have 2-5 years working experience as a software engineer
  • Are analytical, accurate, precise and passionate
  • Have a Master degree in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Embedded Systems or a related field
