Our mission is to envision, champion, and deliver new and unique experiences across our portfolio in close partnership with our product and engineering teams. We want someone that has grown up through the web software development ranks - possessing 10 or more years’ experience in designing and architecting highly scalable, secure, performant, and usable consumer web/mobile applications leveraging cloud infrastructure.

We’re looking for a person with the ability to rally developers to their side and who may be willing to lead people as they grow in their career at Disney.

Our initial focus will be on ESPN, so if you’re a sports fan who cares about building great products, this team will give you the opportunity to define and deliver experiences only ESPN and the Walt Disney Company can pull together. With our deep archives of sports information, content, and editorial talent, there’s no better place to push the boundaries of what’s possible in sports.

The ideal engineer has a deep well of experience delivering high quality product experiences whether on the backend or client or both: what matters is the ability to reason and contribute across the full stack. This is a role that will push creative problem solving and big picture thinking alongside of detailed technical architecture and delivery.

  • Collaborate with other platform teams to develop collaborative roadmaps to achieve strategic objectives, including hands-on embedding with development teams to deliver sustainable MVPs and platforms.
  • Oversee the design of complex technical projects which are typically company-wide initiatives. Oversee multiple products or services conception, design, and initial specifications and help define the technology strategy to be implemented by multiple divisions. Contributes to product and solution designs to address critical and strategic issues and complex problems spanning multiple product groups.
  • Develop technology strategy in response to company-wide strategy and initiatives in support of the needs of key business segments and stakeholders. Sets technical direction, strategy and drives technology innovation within multiple product segments across the company. Produces technical designs and informs product strategies that anticipate, as best as possible, the needs of the business for years to come.

  • Strong collaborative skills – this team’s work is always a partnership with other teams. Need to be able to see a problem or solution from multiple perspectives.
