Who we are
Crowdcast is the virtual events platform for businesses & creators. Every month over 4,000 events go live (& growing) ranging from Q&As to workshops, live shows, meet-ups, webinars, online concerts, & online summits. Our customers range from big companies like Adobe, IBM, Twilio, & HP to creators like Mos Def, Amanda Palmer, MIA, System of Down & Jacob Collier.
We believe technology can be used to bring people together & bridge divides. We're empowering people to share their ideas at scale, bring their communities together, and make a living in the process.
We're a profitable, remote-first, and long-term thinking company. You could say, we're a zebra
Who you are
You get a kick out of imagining what's possible and then realizing it through code. You have a not-so-secret obsession with solving complex problems. You're aware that your job isn't done when that code gets deployed. You have high integrity, are self-motivated, and a life-long learner. You're not afraid to dive into uncharted territory and are open to updating your opinions based on new information. You communicate thoughtfully and grasp ideas easily. You're constantly pushing yourself to grow and become the most authentic & full expression of yourself.
You've spent years refining your web development skills and now want to do work that truly makes a positive impact on the world. You're looking to help build a company that's directly empowering people while being profitable and sustainable. You balance creating impact today with long-term goals and want to play a key role in an early team. You're looking to build a team & culture that you're proud of.
What you'll do
- You won't be just another engineer at a giant company. We're a small tight-knit multi-disciplinary team and you'll be directly involved in shaping the product & culture.
- As a core member, you'll be integral in the design and development of the platform.
- You'll work with a supportive team to get things done with the right mix of quality and agility.
- We're pushing the boundaries of what's possible with live video using web technologies and have built some incredible tech that allows us to host interactive low-latency live video at scale. You'll be a core contributor and also experiment with innovative new solutions.
- You'll work with the latest technologies that power the web. On the front-end, you'll mainly work with React (sometimes Angular), CSS-in-JS & WebRTC. On the back-end, you'll work with Node.js, AWS, Google Cloud, Redis, Mongo, Docker, FFmpeg, HLS, DASH & more. All of these are subject to change with time and your input.
- We value ownership and the ability to take an idea through all the stages from conception to shipping a product. As an engineer at Crowdcast, you'll be highly independent and autonomous. There are no bosses.
Your skills & experience
- Have seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and the just plain weird side of the internet.
- 4+ years of engineering experience. Comfortable working across multiple platforms and environments. Have solid engineering fundamentals (CS degree a plus, but not required).

- Working with video is plus but not required.
