Job DescriptionAbout us

We are building a virtual universe which fundamentally improves how people interact online.

Today, that means a powerful remote-social platform. We already have people working out of our office spaces, attending our virtual conferences, or going to school on our campus spaces. We have folks hosting everything from magic conventions to artist EP launches to thanksgiving dinners, and even a few weddings.

The mission of Gather is to remove physical constraints on peoples' lives, and provide a virtual world which surpasses the real one in interconnectedness, personal touch, and expressiveness.

Role Overview:
  • As a Senior Software Engineer within the Product Platform team, you will be responsible for working on the architectural design and implementation of our React Native mobile client and related systems. This includes working closely with the product team to deliver our MVP for the native client experience.

  • Mobile engineers here at Gather are responsible for writing highly performant code, implementing or adapting new client features, and creating required abstractions that enable our teams to easily create fun, creative, and engaging experiences.

  • Help us create a marketplace for virtual worlds and free Gather from the browser!

Where you will make an impact:
  • Architect, refactor, and maintain the mobile client foundation, tools, and related systems
  • Work with the infra team to make sure we integrate the mobile client with our current CI/CD pipeline
  • Create abstractions that will enable our engineering teams to easily implement new mobile specific features and experiences
  • Advocate for investing in new techniques specific to mobile, features, and technologies
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers, and engineers to scope out features and product directions
  • Write maintainable, clear, well-architected code, tests, and documentation
  • Participate in code reviews and design reviews to ensure quality and good architecture
What you bring:
  • Experience building native clients using React Native
  • Intrinsic motivation and the drive to solve difficult problems without guidance
  • A keen intuition for well-designed software and writing performant, scalable code
  • Ability to ruthlessly prioritize in a chaotic and ambiguous environment
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Experience working with Typescript, React, and Redux is a plus
  • Benefits
  • Work remotely out of a state-of-the-art virtual office!
  • Competitive compensation, benefits, and meaningful equity
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents
  • 401k and matching program
  • Generous PTO policy and mental health days to recharge
  • Meal stipend twice a week to keep you nourished
  • Remote work, education, and health & wellness stipends
  • Support for family planning & gender-affirmation
  • The opportunity to join a passionate team in building something that actually makes peoples' lives better, every single day
