If you've ever dreamed of having your software development efforts seen by millions of people on a daily basis, this is your opportunity!
We are looking for an experienced software developer with the right mix of skills and attitude to join our team at KDVR Fox 31 Denver / Colorado's Own KWGN in Denver, Colorado.
In this position you would be responsible for developing applications to support our state-of-the-art digital broadcast facility. These applications include software to integrate graphics systems with newsroom automation platforms, Master Control monitoring and automation, production control room integration and workflow, and other functions involved with transmission, monitoring and testing.
The successful candidate will have at least a four-year degree in a technical field or comparable work experience. You must have expert knowledge of Microsoft Visual Studio/VBScript, PHP, Perl, Unix/Linux, and a good grasp of modern software development methodologies. Experience with professional broadcast equipment is desirable, but not a requirement. If you have experience playing with embedded computing technologies (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PLCs, etc.) we'd love to hear from you.
A great attitude is a must. We work hard and like what we do, and we want you to have the same mindset. You must be a self-starter and enjoy solving problems that have never been solved before using your skills and ingenuity.
You will be working in a 24/7 broadcast facility involved in covering breaking news events. While most of the time you will work Monday through Friday during normal business hours, you will be required to work nights, weekends and holidays with very little advanced notice depending on the events of the day.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits, a state-of-the-art full digital broadcast facility, and a work environment where you can work with professionals all focused on the goal of being excellent broadcasters in a highly competitive market.
