WHAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE
Optimized, stabilized and advanced Pluto's software, making it more user-friendly, smoother, faster, and highly competitive on the market.

Integrated Bootstrap API, improved energy-saving functionality, and implemented the 'Video On Demand' feature in Android and iOS apps.
Developed an AdTech internal analytical tool to track user engagement stats, target audience behavior, and time spent metrics.
Integrated Pluto's software with Viacom's back end to enforce the fast and consistent data exchange between Pluto and Viacom's services and optimize the clusters' organizational pattern.
It's just a beginning. More are waiting for you in our opened positions below.
Working for Pluto left a lot of positive emotions. Our ideas and opinions as engineers were always appreciated. Our strong team solved many complicated issues, like making the app compatible with a new line of devices. For weeks we were looking for the bottlenecks, optimizing the app to the max. It felt great to use all our knowledge to reach this goal.
This project is for those who are tired of routine tasks and want to search for the best solutions, not settle for the first one that works.
