We have a great group of people working together to create and deliver cutting edge products that look amazing and are easy to use. We go all out so that our customers can have the best possible experience and achieve quality results. With a product focus, continual learning, results driven processes, and creative thinking, we constantly strive to improve our solutions and to deliver results.

If you've ever watched live television, news, sports, or entertainment, you've seen our products in use. All of the major Hollywood award shows, most professional sports teams, and many of the largest broadcasters in the world use Ross Video technology. Get behind the scenes and learn about what it takes to make live events possible.

If that resonates, and you’re someone with integrity, commitment, and a strong drive to deliver great products, we’d love to hear from you.


The Ross Web Platform (or RWP if you’re into the whole brevity thing ) is, as the name suggests, a platform upon which several of our web products are built. It provides a common set of services that can be leveraged by any application built on top of it.

This platform is crucial and plays an important role in delivering products to our customers. RWP based products can be found both on customer premises and executing in the AWS cloud and run on both Linux and Windows servers.

The list of services RWP provides continues to expand and the number of products being ported onto the platform is growing. That’s why we need people like you to join our team and help us get the best products to our customers.


We are a team currently transitioning into an agile workflow and believe in incremental development and continual improvement. We know we’re not perfect and as we embark on this journey, we expect to make mistakes, but also to learn from those mistakes and grow as a result to become stronger, faster, better.

Customer satisfaction is our highest priority, so we are highly customer focused. If that means jumping on a plane and flying half-way around the world to address an issue, then that’s what we’ll do. We go above and beyond for all of our clients – big and small.

We believe in technical excellence and want to create craftspeople as opposed to developers and testers. We think that following best practices, such as TDD, clean code, adhering to SOLID design principles, clean architecture, test automation, and high levels of collaboration among the team produces the most maintainable and extendable applications.

While we have individual specialties, we are all full stack developers. Some of the languages and technologies we work with today include jQuery, HTML, CSS, Jetty, Ajax, Java, Eclipse, OSGi, Struts, and Hibernate. We’re also in the process of modernizing our front-end technologies which include React, Redux, NPM, Webpack, Jest and not jQuery! How can we expect our customers to buy our bleeding-edge technology if we don’t keep up-to-date ourselves?

That means we are always looking for better ways to adapt our work environment and processes to meet the high demands of our customers. Our roles morph, we volunteer for extra tasks, we all care a lot about helping to make good things happen. If you don't like change, you’re in the wrong place, but if you do, then you can be part of an incredible journey.


We can help you flourish. You will get to develop and deliver innovative technological solutions for the entertainment industry. You will be part of the Ross Video family working in harmony to make that happen. We think that’s a pretty energizing environment.

We value our people and listen to their feedback. We offer great perks, flexible hours, free coffee and soft drinks (and a commercial espresso machine for when you need that extra jolt), team building events, BBQ's, and other fun activities. You'll also get to work on real-world projects that have a meaningful impact to our customers and are in use all over the world, every day.
