Production Pro is hiring. We are always on the lookout for smart engineers.




Apprentice Systems Engineer


Transform the way film, theatre and television are created.  We’re looking for a systems engineer with experience designing software systems and algorithms to join our small and mighty team.




What we do: Films and plays are complex, creative endeavors, with hundreds of people working together on something that often changes daily. ProductionPro visually assembles all of a production's moving parts into one, dynamic platform opening the door for a multitude of potential applications in the future.


Why we do it: The entertainment industry has been underserved by tech for decades.  ProductionPro exists to help visual storytellers focus on doing what they do best – creating what the world watches.


Who we are: Our collaborative team is a medley of experienced software engineers, film, and theatre industry vets, and business strategists, with guidance from Stephen Daldry, Robert Boyett, Boris Debic, and Peter Norvig.  


You’ll Be:
  • Making impactful contributions to the backend and client
  • Working with the entire team to maintain a state-of-the-art code base and architecture
  • Developing interfaces, protocols, data models, and services using a combination of (but not limited to) Python, Node.js, C++, Docker, AWS, Firebase, and PostgreSQL
  • Touching the code at almost every level, from AWS Elastic Beanstalk through data visualization algorithms on the iPad client
  • Tuning technical and organizational processes from experience and experimentation
  • Staying up to date with, contributing to, and applying the latest open source technologies


You Have:
  • Experience working independently and on a team, designing efficient algorithms that solve new and unexplored problems
  • A bachelor’s degree in computer science or math
  • A demonstrated knowledge of Python and REST APIs
  • An understanding of Django and Amazon Web Services are preferred
  • An ability to learn iOS, UIKit, XCode, and Objective-C
  • A demonstrated ability to balance long-term vision with short-term functionality
  • A background in algorithms and mathematics
  • An appreciation for film, theatre, and good storytelling
  • Bonus points if you have some technical contributions to show off (GitHub, App Store, or publications)


If you enjoy solving hard problems and want to enable the next generation of world-class entertainment creatives, please apply.


This is a New York-based position that offers a competitive salary and vested equity commensurate with experience, qualifications, and industry norms.
