The Job

HBO Max brings together multiple brands to build the best streaming video customer experience. To complete in the SVOD (Streaming Video On Demand) space we must learn, and learn quickly. We are the team providing the experimentation platform that enables deep understanding of application changes and provides insights to drive impacts on user and developer experiences. Experimentation is critical to the success of the HBO Max service and we are looking for framework-minded engineers to implement easy to use tooling for the Marketing, Product and Engineering teams. Assigning (allocating) our members into A/B test treatments, according to the allocation rules specified by the experiment creators, is foundational to reliable experimentation.

Additionally this platform must enable differentiated treatments as HBO Max moves worldwide.
