SnapStream Legos

Houston Business Journal Best Places to Work AwardSnapStream offers a challenging technical environment, but our attitude is decidedly relaxed. We work flexible hours, drink a lot of Red Bull and soda, and wear pretty much anything that's clean. We offer all the tools and perks to making coding fast and fun: dual LCD's, free snacks, Fast Fiber connection, fun intra-office events, etc.. And we love what we do for a living. Recording and watching television is our passion, whether it's in our homes or supporting our enterprise customers like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report and the U.S. Senate.

All in all, we're a group of technophiles who love PCs, DVRs, video, anything hackable and new gadgets (Apple fan boys in the house). Ultimately, we're seeking a like-minded individual to join our team! Got what it takes?
