This is a fully remote role. You'll be part of a small and tight-knit engineering team of four, currently distributed across Seattle, NYC, Porto, and Dubai. We value diverse perspectives and collaborative teamwork.
Your work will span various product areas, from building participant onboarding flows to enhancing our core video meeting experience to incorporating AI for post-event recaps and summaries. You will partner closely with our designer, PM, engineers, and other stakeholders to drive features end-to-end, from ideation and concept development through deployment and post-release analytics tracking.
As a small team, we also share responsibility for application performance and reliability. You'll welcome the opportunity to investigate and resolve performance bottlenecks, identifying fixes and optimizations to improve our usage of React, Firestore, Google Cloud Functions, and real-time video APIs.
We're looking for an ambitious self-starter who thrives in a collaborative environment and is excited to deliver high-quality features and an exceptional user experience.
The Senior Full-Stack Engineer will report to the Engineering Manager. Our team embraces a remote and flexible work culture, with asynchronous processes and some no-meeting days to allow for deep focus and ownership of your work. We rely heavily on tools like Loom, Slack, and Slite for async collaboration and empower engineers to manage their own schedules and priorities.
While we value async workflows, we also recognize the importance of well-defined synchronous time for team alignment and collaboration. On meeting days, we generally expect availability during our core overlap hours from 12pm to 3pm U.S. Eastern Time.

You Will

  • Work with ClojureScript, Node JS, React, Google Cloud Firestore, and real-time video APIs
  • Own projects end-to-end. Demonstrate ownership and collaborate closely with stakeholders across the organization
  • Improve application performance and reliability. Consider opportunities to improve on instrumentation and monitoring to leave things in a better place than you found them
  • Drive forward our engineering principles. Help ensure that our platform is robust, scalable, and maintainable over time.
  • Contribute to your teammates’ growth. Embrace a collaborative approach through knowledge sharing, pairing, and code reviews.
  • Act with the highest personal integrity and ethics. Make decisions in the best interests of our users and team.

You Have

  • 5+ years of product engineering experience, including 3+ years in a senior role
  • Fluency with modern browser JavaScript, React or similar libraries, modern cross-browser HTML5/CSS, and Node.js or similar in the context of building interactive web applications (e.g., video conferencing, live streaming, real-time collaboration tools)
  • Experience with Clojure/ClojureScript — or, demonstrated ability to quickly learn a new language and be productive in it

Our Ideal Candidate Has

  • Built beautiful, usable, responsive, and highly performant user interfaces on the web
  • Led projects with real-time audio and video using web technologies and standards (e.g., WebRTC)
  • Implemented real-time data synchronization between clients and servers (e.g., WebSockets, PubSub, database subscriptions)
  • Instrumented and debugged web application performance across browsers and devices

What We Offer

  • Compensation package includes both salary and equity
  • Medical, vision, and dental insurance benefits including 50% coverage for dependents
  • Unlimited PTO
  • 401k
  • Flexible, remote-first work environment
  • In-person company retreats throughout the year
We believe that the best teams are composed of people with different backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better able we are to challenge each other’s assumptions and grow as individuals and a company. To that end, we actively seek a diverse pool of applicants and do not discriminate based on any characteristic protected by law.
