Job Description

Our client, a well-funded, video-based social media startup, is looking for a bright Senior Backend Engineer to join their growing team in Palo Alto, CA. 


This company focuses on live, shared experiences. They offer a social platform to gather with your people and explore the Internet together. Gather on group video and hang out with music, videos, photos, TV, movies, and more. It's a portal in your pocket-to your people, to the weird and wonderful world of online.


The company is backed by Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, Founders Fund, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and a host of other incredible partners. They have a world-class team of brainiacs in Palo Alto and Brooklyn who craft the amazing real-time technology the product is built on. They're well-funded, running at full sprint, and always looking for extraordinary people who want to help build a new way to use the Internet-together.


this is an opportunity to be part of a team that develops one of the most advanced real-time platforms in the world. As part of the media team, you’ll help to build and manage the globally distributed media infrastructure that is the backbone of the service. You will also have a hand in developing our optimized mobile media stack for iOS and Android.

Members of the media team:

  • Work on the highly customized media server which is the foundation of the media platform.
  • Extend and improve our globally distributed backend infrastructure.
  • Tune and enhance our custom WebRTC-based media stack on iOS and Android.
  • Collect and analyze metrics relating to system performance and user behavior.
  • Provide detailed and constructive design and code reviews.
  • Are team players who enjoy working with a diverse group of smart colleagues.

What We're Looking For

  • 5+ years of industry experience developing complex, high performance C++ applications.
  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related field, or equivalent experience.
  • Solid understanding of system programming basics, including low-level networking interfaces, concurrent programming, and distributed systems fundamentals.
  • Prior work on media-related projects—including those making use of WebRTC—is a plus, but is absolutely not required.
