Senior Video Chat Platform Engineer

3+ months agoLos Angeles, CA / Remote

Like most people, you’ve likely been on Zoom or Google Meets every day for the past year and have found it to be a subpar replacement for real life conversation. Interested in building the future of virtual interaction?

Join the Pilotly team, the first market research platform built for creative content. By allowing viewers to give feedback in real-time on unreleased content, we help the largest content creators around the world make better decisions through data. Our latest product offering is the most advanced virtual focus group platform available, and we want to expand our team with great web developers who have experience in video chat.

There are many nuances of human interaction that have yet to be considered when it comes to virtual conversation, and we’re exploring every detail of the space with the intent of reducing user fatigue while creating a more natural conversation experience. Furthermore, we are going beyond what is possible in person, diving deep into the data generated by group conversation, analyzing vocal tone, physical cues, sentiment, and much more. In the same way we provide deep insights into how viewers feel about creative content, we’ll provide amazing insights into user interactions during conversation.

When you join Pilotly, you'll work with a team of highly talented engineers and product visionaries who push powerful features / services every week in a rapid paced development environment.
