A bit about us:

Our client is on the forefront of remote work, reimagining video chat by designing virtual spaces to provide context to interactions, which is helping people discover, build, and deepen relationships.
  • Imagine being able to knock on your managers office door & sitting down for a face to face meeting.
  • Imagine meeting with your entire engineering team in a conference room & during this discussion you realize that the team has a key question that only one other employee can answer, but they aren't on the engineering team.
  • Imagine sitting down in the office break room to eat lunch along with 10 of your closest friends in the office.

For the past century all of these scenarios would require everyone to be under one "physical roof", where meaningful relationships are forged & culture is cultivated. Today, all of these scenarios are reality no matter where each person is located, thanks to the bleeding edge technology created by our client. This truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity & those that recognize this will find themselves in an incredibly lucrative position!

What you'll be building:
  • Real life spaces give people something to do while interacting with other people instead of just staring at each other. Shared experiences are core to building human relationships, whether it's listening to music, watching videos, collaborating on whiteboards, or playing games together. Building the apps that make a virtual space even more interactive is at the core of what our client is building. We want this person coming up with an idea and implementing from start to finish, however you want & with whatever tech you choose!
  • As our client becomes more popular, they'll need to manage and orchestrate all the different jobs and processes. Problems include load-balancing between WebSocket servers, post-processing image uploads, and zero-downtime deploys.
  • Customization will be our clients long-term moat. Letting people personalize and own their spaces will be a key differentiator of the companies experience. Sometimes you want to throw a party, and sometimes you want to get some work done. We're building the ultimate creator's tool to allow hosts to drag-and-drop to build their perfect space for each occasion.

Must Haves:
  • 5+ years experience in software engineering. We want you to hit the ground running when you join.
  • Strong sense of product ownership and business impact. It's paramount that you care about the user experience and the impact of what you're building. This is a role where we agree on high level goals, and you'll be trusted to figure out the details. There won't be anyone constantly telling you what to do.
  • Eagerness to learn new technologies. Our tech stack currently includes TypeScript, React, WebRTC (Daily), WebGL (Phaser), NodeJS, Google Firebase, and Google App Engine. We don't care if you're currently an expert of these technologies, but we do care that you'll be able learn quickly. Any experience related to video chat or video games are a plus
