About Us:

Plex is a media streaming company that 9 people instant access to their media collections - home videos, photos, music, TV shows, and movies - so they can quickly find and stream them to any device.

We have a simple yet ambitious mission: to help people easily discover, enjoy, and share all of their media across all of their devices. We’ve made great progress towards this mission, and we have millions of happy customers, but we still have a long way to go!

We are looking for skilled software engineers from across the globe, so no matter your location we urge you to apply.

What Sets Us Apart:

  • We support every major platform, including desktops, mobile devices, smart TVs, streaming devices, and gaming consoles, providing you the opportunity to build and contribute to the technologies you’re most interested in, as well as move across projects to learn new skills.
  • We are a distributed organization, with people making great things happen in more than 15 countries and 11 time zones. While we are passionate about our work and all work hard, we provide flexibility around a schedule that works for you.
  • We love what we’re building and our user community is an integral part of our development process. We actively engage with customers through forums to understand what is working, what they want more of, and how we can be better.
  • We ship cool stuff!
