At Liveblocks, we're building tools to help companies create amazing real-time collaborative products so that people using those products can feel more connected and work better together.

Liveblocks is growing quickly and is backed by some of the best investors including Boldstart, Seedcamp, and individuals who’ve worked at companies like Figma, Github, Vercel, Facebook, Segment, and more.

We're looking for Full Stack Engineers who will work closely with our founding team to help define, build, and scale the product to enable us to bring collaborative experiences to life! As an early member of our growing team, you'll also contribute to building a people-first company culture that is aligned to our mission and goals. 

If this is an endeavor you’d like to be a part of, we'd love to hear from you!

About the role

  • Ship core features. Implement and maintain core features and infrastructure. We're a small team, so everyone is touching all parts of the stack with clear responsibilities.

  • Take ownership. We aim to create a high-trust environment where everyone helps define what is most important to work on and drive initiatives forward.

  • Be a customer advocate. Everything we do is about helping our customers. As part of this job, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with customers and our community to be their advocate.

About you

  • Ability to ship high-quality and well-tested features. Proven and recurring success working as a software engineer in production environments (typically 4 years experience) preferably at SaaS or development tool focused companies.

  • Always learning. A beginner's mind and open interest in learning new technologies and skills.

  • Keeping the big picture in mind. Demonstrate pragmatism and the ability to keep UX and business objectives in mind as you're building.

  • Open communication and collaboration skills. As part of this role, you'll work closely with the team, communicate openly, give and receive thoughtful feedback.

  • Excited to set a strong cultural foundation. As a small and growing team, you'll be asked and expected to provide your feedback and insights in co-creating a culture and company we are proud of. (We're currently defining our company values!)

Who we are

We're a small remote team with a passion for creative tools that foster collaboration. We're makers ourselves, and it's fair to say that we sweat the details in everything we do. Whether it be when designing a landing page for the website, obsessing over the right abstractions for our APIs, and everything in between.

More importantly, we're parents, chefs, immigrants, actors, partners, athletes, coaches, musicians, artists who are excited to share and learn about one another's varied experiences, backgrounds, and passions. 

Our team strongly believes that the most diverse and inclusive teams build the world’s best products and companies - we see this everyday!  We also recognize that we have an opportunity to represent even more facets of diversity on our team and are committed to equitable and inclusive practices throughout our teammates' experience at Liveblocks. 

As a globally distributed company, we are intentional in connecting with one another- synchronously and asynchronously- and have regular off-sites to meet each other in person.

About our founders

Steven (CEO) is a doting uncle who loves to travel and is an avid fan of his hometown football (soccer) team, Rodez. He lives in Paris and has been making creative tools since 2014. Before that, he was running Easee, a web animation tool for designers that was acquired in April 2016 by InVision, which eventually led him to work on design systems and tooling at Facebook Messenger.

Guillaume (CTO) immigrated to Montréal from France and enjoys testing out recipes from the cultures that surround him. When he’s not playing chess or trying out something new like bungee jumping, he’s diving into leading and supporting his team in finding pragmatic and elegant solutions to challenging technical problems. He’s led engineering teams and projects at various companies such as InVision, Breather, and Landr.

Our culture

We believe that the best companies invest early and intentionally in a strong, people-centric cultural foundation that is aligned to business goals. We are currently defining our values, our ways of working, and are committed to equitable and inclusive processes and practices that foster belonging throughout our teammates' experience at Liveblocks. For us, diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and accessibility needs to be embedded in everything we do. Curious to know more? Email us at!


Liveblocks is excited to be a globally distributed company because it means we can have great people like you join our team from around the world! 

In determining a base salary, we currently consider factors such as market data, experience, quality of interviews, and location.

If you are based in New York City, the base salary range for a New York City resident in this role would be between $150,000-190,000 USD.
