Speechpad is looking for someone with expert understanding of the SCC caption file format to help us debug our PHP library which generates this format.
The library seems to produce valid SCC, but it does not seem to behave when imported into Adobe Premiere.
You MUST have an understanding of captions formats (specifically SCC) and understand framerates and timecode (drop frame and non drop frame). Experience in PHP is required and a proficiency in standard practices for PHP package development and unit testing is preferred. Experience with creating libraries with "plugin" capabilities is a plus.
Prior similar experience is desired.
Success in this project will lead to an offer for ongoing, full-time development. These positions require architecting applications as well as developing framework level components and independent, reusable PHP libraries.
Speechpad is a technology-driven Silicon Valley company specializing in Crowdsourcing, video processing, transcription, and captioning. Some exciting clients include major players in the online video market, such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Yahoo, and more.
Please only apply for this position if you are confident you excel at the requirements and job.
Our interview process is as follows:
1. Candidates will be invited to a 30 minute interview via Skype where we will ask you questions about software engineering and web technologies.
2. Accepted candidates will then be offered a full-time paid contract to participate in a 2-4 week probation period.
3. Based on our evaluation of performance during the probationary, we will hire 1 or 2 developers at 40-50 hours per week.
At the end of the contract, we will give feedback based on your ability to succeed at the job requirements above and your performance.
