Full Stack Engineer

> We're hiring for a Full Stack Engineer. You'll build new tools and platform components that span our full stack of technologies: front-end browser and mobile code, back-end HTTP and web sockets servers, specialized WebRTC and media systems, and large-scale video quality/reliability analytics pipelines.

At, we build video APIs that let a developer add video chat to any site or app — in minutes, on a global infrastructure, with features for every use case and team. Live video has leapt into mainstream use, and this is just its first phase of growth. APIs are designed for this and other key shifts, where video now is part of any app, developers rapidly build with services, and APIs provide value to cross-group product teams.

Our customers use our REST and javascript APIs to create lots of different kinds of workflows built around live video. We have a very, very long list of capabilities and features we want to add to our platform 😊. There's also an infinite amount of optimization and debugging to do.

We're hiring a Full Stack Engineer. If you like working at multiple layers of an application stack — from the database layer up through to code running in browsers — we'd love to talk to you. We're very javascript-centric, so you'll be writing lots of javascript code. If you have experience in at least one of the following areas, that's great too: building data analytics pipelines, working with real-time media, or the care and feeding of webpack and babel.

One thing we love about our work is helping other developers and product teams build what they envision. If you share this perspective, are excited by early opportunities, and committed to a good team culture, please reach out!

What you'll do

Example projects:

  • Our recording infrastructure makes use of of WebRTC, MediaSoup, and FFmpeg. So we have all the pieces we need to implement live transcoding and streaming to rtmp services (MUX, Facebook Live, YouTube Live). We just need to write a little bit of code! And design a few new API endpoints. And some supporting UX. Oh, and tests, and build some dev-ops integrations…
  • We log a lot of performance data about video calls. We want to log even more, and make all the data we have about each call available via our developer dashboards. So we need to make some decisions about data storage, design new API endpoints, and implement really easy to use and understand new graphical views of what happened over the full duration of a video call. Once we've done that, we'll want to go back and think about how to aggregate the data we're collecting into useful "account-level" call metrics…

Who you are - do you love…

  • Working at multiple layers of an application stack, from the database layer up through code to running in browsers
  • Writing lots of javascript code
  • Bonus if you have experience in one of the following areas: building data analytics pipelines, working with real-time media, or the care and feeding of webpack and babel.

  • Salary: $120,000 - $190,000, based on experience. (We evaluate experience relative to the experience of the other members of our team.) Compensation is independent of location, and we offer competitive benefits and equity.
