Job Description

Technical Team Leader


Industry: IT Software, Media & Entertainment

Location: Remote Job

Experience: Senior Level

Job type: Full Time


Our Vision

Ateliere Creative Technologies is building the next-generation cloud platform to power the production, post-production, distribution, and monetization of video content, from the camera to the consumer's eye.


The Challenge

The media industry has been slow to embrace the cloud because of the heavy-duty transcoding and logistic workflows involving terabyte-scale media files. We work with Hollywood studios, post-production houses, and the major cloud providers AWS, Azure, and IBM to develop an innovative groundbreaking solution that enables the transition to the cloud and disrupts the industry.

If microservices, massively parallel architectures, distributed systems, image processing, AI, and media editing tools are food for your soul, this is the place to be. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the cloud is what we do.

The Stack

  • Our front-end clients are built with React and test automation with cypress.io.
  • Our APIs are built with GraphQL.

  • Our data sits in Postgres, Redis, and Elasticsearch.
  • We use SQS, SWF, and Step Functions to orchestrate our services.
  • We run in Docker containers over Kubernetes auto-scalable clusters (100s of nodes per cluster).
  • We use Terraform and Helm for infrastructure setup tear down and replication.
  • We use CircleCI for our automated continuous integration process.
  • The code sits on GitHub and we use Jira and Confluence to track work and documentation.
  • We are open-minded and always looking for new tools or technologies to make our lives easier or bring innovation.
