To begin, make sure to read our jobs page: Working with Lookback: who we are and where we're going = https://lookback.io/jobs

Hello -_-v.

We're looking to expand our distributed team with a skilled, experienced full-stack web developer. Someone who loves building great user experiences, innovative and reliable products as well as working with real-time media streaming. We're looking for you who's excited about the opportunity to work in a remote team and to build a product for some of the world's most impactful tech companies (Facebook, Netflix, Spotify and thousands of others). Ideally, you've built many UIs, used many of the web frontend frameworks, but your focus is backend and making things work extremely well (without losing elegance or speed of innovation).
Ideal set of experiences:

- You've worked with building and maintaining large web apps in Meteor, React, Node.js, MongoDB or similar stacks for many years, preferably for a startup.
- You've worked with WebRTC and real-time media streaming, mobile streaming and peer to peer.
- You've got DevOps experience and have managed larger web services and REST APIs in production.
- You've been part of a fully distributed startup team in the past, preferably from the early days all the way through to becoming a larger company.
- You're a vim user and prefer Spotify over any other music service (nah just kidding... or are we!?).

In terms of characteristics, we think you are something like this:

- You're excited about Lookback's mission of using technology to create more empathy.
- You've got strong verbal and non-verbal communication skills (we do a lot of text communication).
- You're humble, you like personal growth, and you listen well.
- You choose a positive outlook on life.
- You're self-organized and driven.
- You love traveling and are excited about Lookback's quarterly offsites.
- You believe technology has the ability to be a great force of good for humanity, and want to contribute to that movement.
- You value introspection and emotions, and are striving to become more aware of the emotions of yourself and those around you.
- You thrive in small teams with a lot of collaboration.

More about Lookback, the role, and compensation:

- This is a full-time position, working from U.S or European timezones. If you're in EU, we'd ask of you to work later in the day a few days per week, to overlap more with the U.S.
- You'd be working primarily with Lookback's Live technology (https://lookback.io/features/live) and maintaining and scaling our web app as well as various web services.
- Working at Lookback means a lot of autonomy, and you'd have a lot of freedom and influence in terms of tech decisions and choosing the best way forward to get a job done.
- Our web tech stack consists most of Meteor, some React and raw Node.js APIs. We also work with Sass (in-house), various HTML5 audio/video tech, Ansible, MongoDB, WebSockets, ES6 and some CoffeeScript, as well as various JS testing frameworks, like Mocha and Ava.
- We offer competitive salary, stock options in a high-growth startup with lots of potential, 30 days of paid time off plus national holidays as well as great insurance for yourself and dependents (U.S only). We also offer paid travel and accommodation for three or more offsites per year (last time we went to Miami Beach 😎).
- Our culture is based around empathy, personal growth and humbleness, ambition and excellence, and delivering great value to our customers. We see Lookback as a vehicle to be able to impact the world, and can't wait for what's ahead.
- We are well-funded by tech investors from both the U.S and Europe (Spectrum28, Index Ventures, Lakestar).
- We work in cross-functional, goal-oriented teams using a modified OKR system we call OKRE (Objective, Key Results and Experiments).

We'd love to hear from you. To apply, shoot an email to the address below.
