byte is an app where creators make looping 6 second videos, built by some of the same people that brought you Vine. Our goals are to democratize creativity and give our audience tools to make creative, interesting, and unique content. We launched at the end of January and have fundraised enough to get us to our next goal.


We're looking for engineers that are thoughtful and excited about helping creators express themselves by building new tools and systems to help people discover content that suits them. Our backend is built on Google Cloud using Go, Spanner, Redis, BigQuery, Cloud PubSub, Cloud Tasks, Cloud Storage, Stackdriver, Datadog, App Engine, and Kubernetes.

    • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems.
    • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack.
    • Set engineering standards, tooling, and processes.

You are someone who

    • Enjoys and has experience building APIs, systems, and services.

    • Has experience with databases, caching, security, data pipelines, and site reliability engineering.
    • Thrives in a small, fast-paced, collaborative environment.
Experience in the specific technologies and languages we use is helpful but not required. We are more interested in your general engineering skill and excitement to contribute to what we're building.
