Work for one of our portfolio companies

WebRTC Video Engineer

Posted on Saturday, July 22, 2023
We’re not actively hiring for this role but we’re always interested in talking with passionate engineers. Read further on who we are and how to reach out.
Come help us design and implement new infrastructure to support video calls and low-latency video streaming. We are remote ​

Who we are

Daily is WebRTC video and audio for every developer. We're building the APIs and infrastructure to power the future of video, and the Internet.
Developers use Daily to add real-time video and audio experiences to any product. Our features range from prebuilt UIs and lower-level APIs to call quality data and global infrastructure and compliance. We serve developers across use cases — like events, productivity, edtech, and healthcare — and serve teams of all sizes. We're a remote team led by seasoned executives who value inclusivity and work-life balance, focus on growth (last year we saw 10x growth), and have raised over $60 million in funding to date.

Compensation and benefits

We level based on years of relevant experience. Each level has one salary and equity; they're the same across roles. Compensation also is the same rate regardless of location. (We updated our compensation in January 2022 after an extensive internal process. The linked post talks about how we level candidates, in part because we believe clarity in levels benefits all of us. It’s also the case we strive to be consistent among staff on each team, and we haven’t included all of the details about how we level every role. If you apply and we get to the offer stage, we’ll be actively interested in learning about your experiences—but we may count certain work as indirect to maintain fairness within our team. If we’re in that discussion with you, we’ll do our best to share all the information that informs our decision.)
Level 3: 5-6 yrs relevant experience, $155,000
Level 4: 7-8 yrs, $180,000
Level 5: 9-10 yrs, $210,000
Level 6: 11-14 yrs, $240,000
Level 7: 15+ yrs, $270,000
Medical, dental, and vision group coverage for US teammates

Local country payroll/coverage for teammates outside the US
PTO: We ask that you take at least four weeks paid vacation
Parental leave: paid 4 months leave
IT budget: please get what you need to be effective
Professional learning & development budget
Remote team: work from anywhere — this team mostly resides in the US East and Central Europe timezones, and you’d need to have some synchronous time each week

More on our hiring process

If we’d like to move ahead, we’ll ask you for a call. Here’s what our whole interview process looks like:
Hello call. Our VP of Engineering has a video call with you. This is to learn about each other, and see if we can have a good conversation about where we're a mutual fit. We'll tell you about what we're building, how we think about the market opportunity, and how our team works. We're eager to learn about you.
Take-home exercise — compensated. We don’t do live exercises or tests. Instead, we give you a sample project to work on on your own schedule. It’s a few hours of thinking and writing. We will pay you for your time.
Teammate video calls — two of these, and each may include a couple of Daily staff. We’ll use the first to talk about your take-home and other automation and devtool focused topics. The second will likely focus on bigger-picture topics. We’ll let you know ahead of time who you’ll be meeting with.
Cofounder call. You’ll have a video call with one of our two co-founders. We’re still small enough that it’s important to meet them as part of the process.
References. We talk to at least two people. We typically ask to talk to a peer and a manager.
Wrap-up call. You’ll talk again with our VP of Engineering about specific projects and teams you might join.
