Careers At Rentrak

Back End Software Engineer

Rentrak measures viewing on over 30 million televisions through the United States.  Every time one of those viewers presses a button on their remote control we process that data.

Our media measurement doesn’t stop with television. We also receive data for movie theaters, internet television, video on demand, mobile devices and video rentals.  So when we say our engineers deal with BIG DATA we mean it. Rentrak processes more transactions a day than every major credit card company combined.  

We are an established and stable 30 year old publicly traded company (NASDAQ:RENT), but we operate with the flexibility and energy of a start-up.

Our Team’s Impact on the Business 

Our engineers build the underpinnings of Rentrak’s technology stack which drives our entire television measurement and advanced demographics platform.

Our solutions scale to process hundreds of billions of data points per day with stringent latencies of tens of milliseconds.
