So Your Company Has Joined the Alliance...
If your company is already a member, that means you can participate. But the ways in which you get involved depend upon your personal goals and the time you have available. And although the Alliance is primarily a technical organization (that is, we focus on solving technical challenges in streaming video), there are many ways to contribute as engineers, product managers, solution architects, business development, marketing, and more. Below are just a few examples of how you can participate.
When you do choose to participate, your experience with the Alliance can be just as beneficial to you as it is to the organization. Below are just some of the personal benefits available when you become active!
What Do You Gain From Participating?
Gain New Perspective
Working with fellow engineers from different companies can provide interesting new perspectives on issues you are trying to resolve. The Streaming Video Alliance's working groups and other activities provide a perfect forum for engaging and collaborating.
Although career progression benefits a lot from how you perform at your job, it's also about relationships. Developing those relationships while working together on projects within the Alliance working groups demonstrates not only your technical skills but also your ability to work together.
Build Your Personal Brand
Being an active member of Alliance projects and activities can be a boon to your brand. Showcasing what you have contributed to within the industry is a way to demonstrate to current and future employers your commitment to solving technical challenges that everyone is facing. What's more, with our LABS initiative, you can even jump into coding open source software for the streaming industry.

Bring Back Value
Although organizations like the Streaming Video Alliance benefit immensely from contributing engineers, it's also an opportunity to bring innovation back into your company. Whether gleaned through working group activity, or inspired by it, your work within Alliance activities may provide the breakthrough you've been chasing.
Contribute to the World
The work produced by the Alliance is made available to everyone in the industry, member or not. By contributing to guidelines, best practices, and specifications, you are helping to ensure that streaming video viewers, regardless of platforms, get the best possible experience.
