Philo is working to reinvent the television experience for the modern age and create a service we’ll love as much as the shows we watch. In short, they’re making the television experience we’ve always wanted for ourselves and everyone else who loves TV but hates the way it works. Philo is available on all your favorite devices, wherever you are.  Watch live, save unlimited shows to watch later, or browse a huge library of content available on-demand.

The right candidate for the role is someone who is detail oriented, loves TV, and is exploding with creativity. If the mutual experience is positive, there is an opportunity to earn a full time offer at the end of the apprenticeship.
