Your customers, your content, our Software-as-a-Service

Speed to market

With an ever growing portfolio of cloud features supporting an established and growing set of devices, we get your video out there in the shortest possible time to market.

Low cost start

Suggested TV is already integrated with multiple content hosting partners and payment providers, and together with vouchering it allows for a low cost route to market and the ability to instantly promote your content.

Scalable and flexible

Suggested TV has been designed for scalability allowing you to use our existing service components, as well as building upon and integrating your established partner services.

De-risking your multiscreen challenges

Not only is the Suggested TV platform fully supported within our licensed plan, our systems integration and professional services ensure we take full responsibility to minimise your risk.

Design, Build, Deliver

15 years experience within the digital TV space has helped deliver over-the-top VOD solutions using our Suggested TV platform, which we continue to evolve and also adapt to individual requirements.

Cloud based platform

Suggested TV is hosted and managed entirely in the cloud; content, features and user management tools give you complete editorial and creative control of your service anywhere.

Suggested TV Platform

At the heart of Easel TV’s software-as-a-service is our Suggested TV platform, providing you with an efficient and easy way to manage and distribute your content to multiple screens.

Televisual experience

Our background and experience in digital television has enabled us to build a ‘televisual experience’ and evolve it to provide an optimised user experience for each individual screen.

Suggested TV Dashboard

The Dashboard is the interface between Suggested TV and you, boasting a range of easy to use cloud based tools for user management, content management and promotional activity.

TVOD, SVOD and EST

The Suggested TV platform can distribute a mixture of SVOD and TVOD content separately, or within the same service. EST is currently being developed into the platform, watch this space!

Multiple payment providers

The Suggested TV platform supports multiple payment providers, enabling e-wallet and direct credit card billing for reoccurring subscriptions and individual transactions.

Promotional tools

Content takeovers, voucher redemptions and social network sharing are some of the tools which help you get your content to do the work for you!

Single source, multiscreen

Being a cloud based platform, a single source of content feeds multiple screens and devices. More devices and apps can be added without affecting the central user and content set up.

We’re hiring!

Be part of the journey and join our award-winning software engineering team in Hatton Garden, London.

Senior Software Engineer

Overview

We’re looking for a senior, full stack software engineer to become a key part of our growing team.

The role is to form a part of the core product development team for Easel TV’s award-winning product, Suggested TV. This will give you an opportunity to work with a highly motivated team of skilled individuals on an innovative approach to help realise the future of television from the cloud. Put simply though, your job will be to contribute to all layers of the stack and to ship production-ready code.

You will take responsibility for the full stack solution for core product components, which cater for many different client requirements at the same time and therefore require a “product” mind-set rather than a one-off project approach. This full stack includes both core server-side components and a number of device-optimised video player applications for a variety of different connected devices including smart TVs, games consoles, tablets and phones using both the manufacturers’ specific SDKs and responsive design web applications.

Desired Skills and Experience

You have solid Java skills and some functional programming experience, preferably with Scala. You have several years experience in Java and probably in other languages too. You will also have worked with Scala for at least 6 months, even if only out of interest rather than professionally. 

You are a great web developer. You have been doing professional web development for several years. As such, you have a good understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and related technologies and frameworks.

You are familiar with agile development and continuous deployment methodologies. You are, basically, a professional software engineer who embraces pragmatic process and methods to ensure a high quality, predictable and relevant result from every project.

You have experience and the scars to prove it. That means 5+ years of experience as a Software Engineer using Java, although the number of years doesn’t matter as much as that you have seen things and worked through different sets of challenges and issues.

You relish the challenge of building software products. Our SaaS platform must support multiple different client requirements at the same time and this requires a very different mindset to an agency or project-based professional services.

You are a great team player. We care a lot about culture and only hire people who are not alone in this world, and like to collaborate and create great stuff together. Sharing ideas, documenting and contributing to the overall goal with your team members is a natural thing.

You always feel responsible and want to deliver the best you can. Therefore it is a natural and absolutely not resented part of your role to (unit) test your own software and you embrace good development practices. You consistently produce reliable code that other people – or you, six months into the future – will find easy to comprehend and modify.

You already have the right to work in the United Kingdom. We are happy to accept applications from outside the UK, however we are a small company and do not have the resources to sponsor visa applications. If you are applying from outside the UK or EU, please explicitly state that you already have the right to work in the UK in your covering mail, otherwise we will assume you don’t qualify or that you haven’t read this bit and will not consider your application.
