About Airtime

Today, online means alone immersed in microblogs and success theater.  We're changing that. We are charting the course for the next era of the Internet: live, shared experiences. We're building a new way to use the Internet together.

That’s why we’re pioneering a new kind of social experience, one designed for togetherness.  At its core, Airtime is a social platform for doing whatever together. Gather with your people to explore the Internet: group video, listen to music, chat, watch stuff, send pictures, GIFs, and more.

Go watch the app marketing video on then check out the mobile app or desktop app in person.

Our company was founded a few years ago by Sean Parker and is backed by Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, Founders Fund, and a host of other amazing partners.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with product managers, designers, and other engineers to produce an amazing, engaging and fun Airtime experience on the desktop and web.
  • Prototype concepts to demonstrate and test approaches

Who You Are

  • A proficient web developer who is enthusiastic about producing high quality code, learning new technologies and pushing the state of the art on the web.
    • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript, and usability and interaction design
    • Able to effectively debug and profile code using Chrome Developer Tools
    • Some level of familiarity with WebGL either directly or through a library like PixiJS or Three.js
  • Enjoys being at the intersection of engineering and design
  • Comfortable with, and better yet excited by, product exploration.  We are continually changing and improving our product to delight users.
  • Works well with a team.  Not a cowgirl or cowboy.  Teams that encourage and foster debate in a healthy way provably deliver the best work.

Our Team

  • Focused on value add for the user.  That means we leverage third-party libraries and tools where it makes sense, but have also been committed to building key technology in-house that sets Airtime apart.  You can read more about it on our tech blog at In short we’ve built a nodejs microservice based messaging backend, globally distributed WebRTC based media stack, Android+iOS mobile clients, and desktop client.
  • Minimizes meetings.  We are a distributed team across NYC, SF, and PA but besides our weekly 30 minute sprint planning and company all hands we only have one-off meetings as necessary to discuss specific product or technical topics.  We generally just coordinate on Airtime and Slack.

What Happens Next?

  • If you like what you’ve seen and heard then apply!
  • After you apply we’ll reach out to discuss to make sure there is a good overall fit.
  • If there is a good overall fit, you’ll have some phone chats with our VP of Engineering and Director of Design. We’d love to see a portfolio of your work you can share with us.
  • If that goes well you’ll come on site and talk to around four team members where you’ll go over a variety of design and web development topics
  • If everything goes well we will be back to you in a day or so with our answer and maybe an offer!

Are you in?
