UUX is a new corporation that will enable operators to provide the Ultimate User eXperience over mobile and fixed networks.
UUX provides network operators with the ultimate Internet-TV-as-a-Service (iTaaS) platform.
The UUX iTaaS platform is delivered with the philosophy that initial user engagement with video often begins outside of the living room on one or more connected devices. With its unique smart phone-based user interface, iTaaS enables a new approach to discovery, control, consumption and monetization of Live and Catch-Up television and Video-on-Demand content across all Internet connected devices and screens.
UUX is looking for two project managers to run projects partnering with local cellular operators in developing countries to provide access to the UUX iTaas platform. The positions are based in Miami, FL with opportunities to also be in São Paulo, Brazil. Prefer those who have experience with mobile carriers, application development, and content delivery. An individual comfortable in a start-up environment is key. International travel is required and knowledge of a foreign language is a plus.
