Smart TV & Web

About the team

We work mainly on improving the Showmax Smart TV app and developing new products. The app is written in Typescript using React — compared to the web, the development is more about low level performance.

In general, development for leanback devices can be difficult and challenging, but it’s also one of the most interesting areas in which we work. It really forces us to understand what’s going on under the hood of Javascript, and it’s also a great deal of fun to come up with unique solutions to unique problems.

How we work

Developing a smart TV app implies its continuous testing on various types of devices. We develop for and test many different brands (LG, Samsung Tizen, Hisense, etc.) and categories, from low-end to high-end, so we already have a very cluttered smart TV wall in the office. Recently, after the COVID-19 outbreak, we pulled back to home office and switched to remote testing performed with’s CandyBox.

It’s no secret that we love to experiment. Interestingly, our developers work closely with product and design (dual track), so the work is also creative.
