The world has changed. It’s faster paced, and we’re bombarded with more information than ever before. For news organizations to succeed they must adapt to the quickly evolving world of social media and find new ways to plan and organize their content.

News productions must also leverage new platforms, no longer is it acceptable to simply broadcast over the air. To reach the broadest audience and be successful, content needs to be produced for all mediums, including broadcast, the Web, and social media. Audiences need to be engaged in a way that was never possible until now.

We need you to become part of the winning team that makes all this possible.

We are a team currently transitioning into an agile workflow and believe in incremental development and continual improvement. We know we’re not perfect and as we embark on this journey, we expect to make mistakes, but also to learn from those mistakes and grow as a result to become steadier, faster, better.

Customer satisfaction is our highest priority, so we are highly customer focused. If that means jumping on a plane and flying half-way around the world to address an issue, then that’s what we’ll do. If that means sticking our heads into a lion’s mouth, well… we won’t do that, but you get the idea 😊.

We believe in technical excellence and want to create craftspeople as opposed to developers and testers. We think that following best practices, such as TDD, clean code, adhering to SOLID design principles, clean architecture, test automation, and high levels of collaboration among the team produces the most maintainable and extendable applications.

While we have individual specialties, we are all full stack developers. Some of the technologies we work with include React, jQuery, HTML, CSS, Jetty, Ajax, Java, Eclipse, OSGi, Struts, and Hibernate.


That means we are always looking for better ways to adapt our work environment and processes to meet the high demands of our customers. Our roles morph, we volunteer for extra tasks, we all care a lot about helping to make good things happen. If you don’t like change, you’re in the wrong place, but if you do, then you can be part of an incredible journey.


We can help you flourish. You will get to develop and deliver cutting edge technological solutions for the entertainment industry. You will be part of the Ross Video team working together to make that happen, and we find that a pretty energizing environment.

We value our people and listen to their feedback. We also offer great perks, flexible hours, free coffee and soft drinks (and a commercial espresso machine for when you need that extra jolt), team building events, BBQ’s, and other fun activities. You’ll also get to work on real-world projects that have a meaningful impact to our customers and are in use all over the world, every day.
