Make your mark in the broadcast and digital media landscape!

Sinclair Digital is transforming how local news and television is produced, distributed, and consumed. We are the digital innovation team for the largest and most diversified television broadcasting company in the country, with affiliations to all major networks and more local television stations than anyone else. Sinclair Digital’s software engineers work together to solve complex problems around delivering news and entertainment to audiences across the country. Our digital portfolio combines websites, mobile apps, over-the-top (OTT) apps, and our content publishing platform into a seamless user experience. We take pride in our charter to transform Sinclair Broadcast Group from a broadcast-centric company into an every-platform enterprise while maintaining our entrepreneurial spirit.


The Core Platform team is building the future of a CMS platform that supports over 200 properties including local news operations, sports operations, The Tennis Channel, and STIRR. They are tasked with implementing our new event based architecture by pulling out individual pieces of functionality from monolithic applications and replace them with standalone microservices, creating a fast, stable, and scalable platform.

The Infrastructure team will build, manage, and maintain services that support internal teams. Some examples include CDN, Authentication (SSO, Auth0), Subscriptions, and Kafka (with Confluent), Redis (with Redis Labs), Google Cloud Platform Apps, Other database solutions (RDBMS, AWS Aurora), and Video streaming services ( Verizon VDMS with Uplynk).
