Location: New York, NY


We (Livestream’s product team) are
building the next generation live event coverage and social network platform
over web and mobile. Our team launched the New Livestream in beta last month –
check it out at at We are looking
for new team members to help us build and launch this new product in 2012. The
stack is: Redis, Node.js, Ruby on Rails Web Site (built on top of REST APIs),
Finagle on Scala for notification and other advanced services,
Objective-C iOS apps.
We’ve recently made a foray into the
SCALA landscape with some of our back-end services. We’ve been enjoying the
power and flexibility it gives us as a programming language. As our lead
developer on that project, you’d be in charge of growing that codebase and
architecting it into a significant part of the stack, all the while being able
to make independent decisions.
As the engineering team in NYC grows,
you’ll be able to help further construct a great engineering environment. We
believe in using up-to-date tools and practices to remove as much friction as
possible and stay flexible and lean. 
We are NYC based with more than 50
staff members here, including the product and engineering leadership team.
Livestream is based in 111 8th Avenue (on the L – 8th avenue) but there’s a
good chance that the engineering and product team will move to an awesome new
office in Williamsburg in early 2012.
