Sr. Software Engineer, Front End

New York, NY
Development
Full-time

LiveLike is a funded and well-endorsed VR/AR/interactive live sports startup. We have partnered most notably with FOX Sports to release Social on Fox Sports VR, we broadcasted Superbowl LI and recently worked with France TV to create the French Tennis Open VR.

At our core, we are a big group of nerds, sports fanatics, and generally lovable people. We're as passionate about VR as we are about free morning coffee and 5 o’clock drinks, so our team has access to every major VR system, and so will you. We've worked extremely hard to get where we are right now but we wholly embrace the laid back but "get s**t done" culture.

What you'll be doing:

    • Innovating: Our experience lives on multiple platforms, and will soon live on even more. Which means we’ve got to do a lot of work on making sure our VR/AR/native mobile experiences are well built, functional, and consistent. You could spend a day on Daydream and the next on iOS. Versatile innovation is the name of the game.
    • Architecting: We’re constantly improving our apps and, as I’m sure you know, the foundation for a great app is solid architecture. You’ll be working with our other senior team members on the core frontend systems used by our apps. That means knowing your stuff when it comes to how high quality apps are built from the ground up.
    • Scaling: Today we’re working with several clients internationally and will need to ensure that our platform can scale to meet the needs of dozens more. That means utilizing your experience with solid architecture & design principles to ensure the platform scales well as it grows.
    • Building tools: Efficiency is the name of the game. Being efficient means creating tools and processes that our entire product team use to make everyone life easier without compromising quality. Sounds easy right?
    • Collaborating: We’ve got a pretty killer team (maybe we’re biased), and you’ll get to collaborate and learn from all of them. That doesn’t mean just all our engineering team, that means our Product Manager, Designers, Data Analysts, 3D Artists, and probably even our Live Production Team. We’ve got a pretty diverse family going on here, and you’ve gotta be ready to say “Hi” to them all.

What you'll need to do it:

    • 4+ years of software engineering experience with an OO language
    • A bachelor's degree (or higher) in Computer Science
    • Experience using external APIs and SDKsPrior work with mobile platforms
    • A history of picking up new skills & technologies quickly
    • Passion for VR, AR, MR and Game Development (or dogs. Those are cool too)
    • Willing to learn Unity & Game Development
    • An understanding of the general “No Assholes” policy

What would be super cool:

    • You’ve played with Unity & game development
    • Your personal Github page is full of cool projects you wanna share with us
    • Modern UI design & UX is something you have opinions about
    • The VR/AR market is something you’ve been keeping up with
    • You’re some kind of fancy chef and you wanna cook us food
    • You wanna get our CTO chocolate (this kind of bribery is ok with him)

What you'll tell your friends:

    • “The past couple of weeks have been crazy! I just wrapped up a project where I architected a new feature from scratch. Everyone trusts me so much already!”
    • “My team is crazy smart! I feel like I’m surrounded by a crew of VR geniuses. I’ve learned so much about Unity development already and feel like my past engineer experience is actually helping bring a lot of perspective to the team.”
    • “I went to karaoke last night with my team and I definitely saw a couple of the company founders sing-scream Celine Dion songs...”

What we offer:

    • $120,000 - $140,000 Salary
    • Comprehensive benefits
    • TONS of VR equipment to play with
    • (semi) Regular Cocktail Thursdays
    • Monthly sporting events & VR stipend

Note: Don't feel obligated to include a cover letter with your application as well. Answering our "why you want to work with us" question is more than enough. That said, if you have a bad ass cover letter, or just wanna say something witty feel free to include it!
