Product & Engineering

at Catch&Release

The Internet is the richest source of content that has ever existed and is growing at a rate of 3.2 billion pieces of new content daily. At Catch&Release, we believe this content will be the predominant media marketers, advertisers, and brands use to tell their stories. We also firmly believe that existing content will power a wave of change through all creative market segments, from entertainment to corporate communications and beyond.


We thought it was crazy that the Internet lacks a service that makes content licensing simple, fast, and equitable to all parties involved, so we’re building it. C&R Engineering is on a mission to develop a scalable platform to facilitate the promotion, discovery, curation, and licensing of all forms of content on the Internet.


To get there, we need to assemble a team of ambitious, user-focused individuals to build products based on the best-of-breed technology stack that spans everything from best-in-class user experiences to highly scalable services to ML & AI to petabyte-scale data processing and search. Because we’re the first to do this, we’ll be inventing a lot of this technology along the way.


It’s a bold goal to build the licensing engine for all content on the Internet, but we’re confident we’ll achieve it with a team of bold innovators on our side.
