Disney Streaming is a business unit within The Walt Disney Company's Media & Entertainment Distribution (DMED) segment that oversees many consumer-facing digital video subscription services across the company. Disney Streaming is responsible for developing and operating The Walt Disney Company's direct-to-consumer video businesses globally, including the Disney+ premium entertainment streaming service; Hulu and Hulu Live TV and Video, the ESPN+ premium sports streaming service, programmed in conjunction with ESPN; and BAMTECH Media, a global leader in direct-to-consumer video streaming products and solutions. Its core mission is to deliver to global audiences the freedom to access content on their terms across any connected device, time or location.
We are looking for a team player, someone that is a good cultural fit for a bunch of bright, fun, passionate, and professional people. You'll be working with industry leading professionals who share their experiences and learn from each other.
As a Sr. Android Engineer at Disney Streaming, you'll be building solid, scalable and maintainable mobile applications. Our team is responsible for the video player behind Disney+, ESPN+, Hulu, and NHL. We work to build a state of the art video player capable of handling cutting edge video technology while maintaining compatibility across a wide range of devices.
Most of our project is Kotlin based with a strong focus on testable code.

Our company is robust and established, but our team is flexible, dynamic and forward thinking. Our Android team is split over three offices, NY, Amsterdam, and San Francisco. We work together and share knowledge across the global teams, but you will mostly work with your local colleagues in the New York office.
