Senior Software Engineer, WebRTC

Help build your ideal remote working experience and join our mission to make online interactions more meaningful. At Spot, we are building a virtual office that helps high-performing organizations communicate more effectively while enhancing team experience, building company culture, improving retention, and amplifying productivity.

Spot is hiring an experienced engineer to work directly alongside our founders and to be a member of our small, but experienced, engineering and product team. Our tech stack consists of MediaSoup, TypeScript, Babylon.js, React, Apollo/GraphQL, and Nest.js. Everything is built on top of AWS using modern tooling.

The ideal candidate will be someone who has a deep understanding of WebRTC including building and shipping multi-platform experiences, protocols and internals, etc.

This is a remote position, but we are primarily located in Seattle, WA.

Responsibilities include

  • Helping to optimize our existing real-time audio/video experience.
  • Working with the rest of the team to realie our product roadmap.
  • Building out new core functionality, such as live streaming to large numbers of users.
  • Solving scaling challenges related to our existing code and growing base of customers.
  • Helping to evolve our codebase and team: improving automation, tooling, and overall code quality.

What we look for

  • Several years of experience as part of a high-performing engineering team.
  • Deep experience with WebRTC-related technologies
  • Fluency in JavaScript/Typescript
  • A pragmatic approach to problem solving– knowing what good code looks like while also understanding the art of shipping.
  • The ability to work independently at times and simply get stuff done.

Nice to haves

  • Familiarity with MediaSoup
  • Deep understanding of web application development: HTML, CSS, React, etc.
  • Experience with audio processing and things like noise suppression
  • Enjoyment of remote work, but an appreciation for some things that a physical office can bring (we want to close this gap!).

Things We Value

  • True enjoyment of the work and software engineering
  • Working hard and playing hard
  • Having each other's back
  • Pursuing technical excellence
  • Positive mindsets
  • Low-ego environments

Benefits

  • Medical, Dental and Vision
  • Generous Equity as an early teammate
  • 401k
  • Opportunity for significant growth (and potentially OSS contributions)
  • Top of the line equipment
  • Build out your dream office (virtually) inside of Spot!
