Job Description

Highfive makes meetings better with video conferencing that's insanely easy to use. Founded by two former Googlers and backed by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, and General Catalyst, Highfive developed an all-in-one hardware & software solution to fix the age-old problem of why the first 15 minutes of every meeting are a complete waste of time. We've got a strong team, a huge addressable market, and a differentiated product. All we need is you!

Highfive wants software engineers to drive the future development of our media platform and conference room device. At Highfive, we are changing the way people communicate at work using our cloud-enabled device, desktop and mobile apps for real-time video and screen-sharing. Our platform software engineers will be responsible for dreaming up and building cutting edge real-time collaboration features on top of a WebRTC media stack and/or an embedded Linux device.

The ideal candidate is comfortable moving up and down the OS and browser stack, and can work on both camera drivers in the kernel and Javascript APIs for platform features. If you have a sense of adventure and a keen ability to get hardware and software to work together in beautiful, useful ways, come talk to us!
