BAMTech is a streaming technology joint venture between The Walt Disney Company, Major League Baseball Advanced Media, and the National Hockey League. BAMTech handles streaming for numerous partners, some of which include, HBO, MLB, NHL, Eurosport, ESPN, and World Wrestling Entertainment.

Fans demand access to content on their own terms on any device, anytime, anywhere. We are those fans. As a result, the BAMTech Media team helped pioneer live event streaming over the Internet in 2002 for Major League Baseball. The passion to improve that experience led to many impressive firsts: the first 720p or "HD Ready" stream, the consecutive record for concurrent streams and the first stream in 8K ultra HD. Today, BAMTech has a proven, scalable platform that powers direct-to-consumer applications for leading entertainment brands; and is now a major player in sports and eSports rights acquisition.

We are looking for engineering talent to help expand our capabilities and help ensure our platforms grow and scale through innovating our next digital breakthroughs.
Our environment is incredibly dynamic, fast-paced, and sophisticated. You will be a key member of the Core Media team responsible for engineering the next generation systems that support ever-larger audiences of world-class live content.
