Hello, wizards of web app development!

If you are passionate about WebRTC, are great at what you do, and want to make a positive impact in the world… we want to talk to you about joining our team.

In this role, you’ll collaborate with our designers, producers, and other developers to build great stuff—usually in the form of web apps.

If you’re a proactive problem solver, a tinkerer, a self-starter, and, when necessary, a search-Stack-Overflow-until-your-eyes-fall-out type of person, keep reading!

Some of the things you might do:

  • Collaborate with your teammates to create a strategy, come up with new ideas and provide insight and expertise for our projects
  • Develop and implement new features and functionality for JavaScript-based communication platforms
  • Establish and provide guidance for backend architecture
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimize code for maximum speed and scalability

In order to be great at this job, here are some of the skills and attributes you’ll need to succeed:

  • Expert knowledge of JavaScript and frameworks (React, Angular, NodeJS); ReactNative would be a bonus
  • A good understanding of WebRTC technologies, with particular emphasis on browser-based latency-sensitive use cases
  • Familiarity with responsive design and how best to achieve it
  • Strong ability with front-end tools like HTML, CSS, Javascript, and jQuery
  • Proficiency with the MERN stack
  • Passing familiarity with Ruby on Rails (or at least a willingness to learn it)
  • Experience integrating APIs
  • Proficiency with a development workflow including Sass and Git
  • Bonus: experience with BigBlueButton
  • Double bonus: experience with large-scale media-streaming systems
  • Double-double bonus: a pet cat that doubles as a hat

Some things to know about us:

  • We’re all over the place. Our team is mostly remote, with people both in the U.S. and around the globe.
  • People really like working here. Our employees consistently rate their experience on our team as being in the 96+ percentile.
  • We believe in what we do. Learn more on our about page.

Still with us?

Great. Because we’ve got some good news:

In exchange for your services, you’ll be rewarded with a flexible work schedule, competitive pay, unlimited leave, as well as participation in our annual shutdown (often two weeks off, sometimes more, at the end of the year). Plus, we celebrate most U.S. federal holidays by not working.

We welcome applicants from around the world, but please, no outsourcing companies or staffing agencies.
