Should You Work at HBO or Netflix?

Should You Work at HBO or Netflix?

Over 130 million people subscribe to HBO globally.  Founded in 1972 with its first launch on a cable system serving Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania with the 1971 film, sometimes a Great Notion, starring Paul Newman and Henry Fonda, HBO was the world’s first “pay” tv service. Originally primarily airing movies over time it has evolved into one of the most successful and prolific producers of original shows. From today’s Game of Thrones to the Sopranos and True Blood of the past HBO is known for some of the most watched original programming on television. In 2015 HBO entered the “OTT” video market with the launch of their direct to consumer service HBO Now. With over $2 billion dollars in annual income HBO has a strong capital base for expansion. But what about the competition from Netflix and Amazon?  Netflix has been spending billions of dollars creating original programming for broadcast on their service.  As of April 2017 Netflix was reporting in excess of 99 million subscribers worldwide. But while most of HBO’s distribution is through deals with cable operators, virtually all of Netflix’s subscribers are direct. Amazon is also a formidable competitor having developed a video service for their Prime members…

Why Working at Hearst is Much Better than Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Why Working at Hearst is Much Better than Houghton Mifflin

Hearst is a $5 billion dollar 130 Year young media company that has successfully transformed itself into a digital powerhouse.  They have over 300 jobs open many of which are in the new digital economy. 85% of the employees approve of the CEO and 2/3 would recommend working there to a friend.  This compares with only 50% of the $2 billion Houghton Mifflin company employees liking what their CEO is doing and being willing to recommend working there to a friend. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, founded as Houghton Mifflin in 1832, is a US educational and trade publisher. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishes textbooks, instructional technology materials, assessments, reference works, and fiction and non-fiction for both young readers and adults.

Narrative Science Why You Want to Work Here– Can the Computer Write Stories Better Than You?

Why You Want to Work at Narrative Science

Narrative Science is at the forefront of computer automation.  At Media Jobs we have brought you numerous stories discussing how data visualization is all the rage right now and will be into the foreseeable future, and for good reason. The vast amount of data being generated and collected every second of every day on every possible topic is almost useless without a good way to analyze it and present it in an understandable way. And they were all written by humans. But in certain situations, those charts, graphs, and other unique visualization tools still aren’t the best way to transfer information to people. Sometimes a concise and information-packed story is the most pleasing and understandable way to absorb information, and that’s where Narrative Science excels, no humans required. Tell Me About The Narrative Science Game If you ask Google or Siri or Cortana this question (which is actually a statement, I guess), you’ll probably get a final score – assuming that you specify the game you’re referring to, of course. But software developed by Chicago-based Narrative Science doesn’t wait for you to ask. Instead, it collects the relevant information about the game and writes a summary in paragraphs we’re used to…

Grovo Makes the Most Expensive One Minute Video Ever Made

What is the Most Expensive One Minute Video Ever Made?

What do Victor Hugo and Jeff Fernandez of Grovo have in common?  They both are related to the quote “nothing is more powerful as an idea whose time has come” Jeff has raised a total of $65 million dollars for his start up Grovo to fund the newest big underserved market of corporate employee training with his idea of “microlearning”. In the last year Grovo has doubled their head count to 200 employees and with the recent $40 million dollars in new capital investment most likely the headcount will be growing.
