Jobs at StageIt

StageIt is a virtual stage for performers and fans. It allows performers to make money from LIVE, interactive and intimate experiences while offering their fans a front row seat to a backstage experience. Created by performers for performers, we’ve been doing this for ten years—and now we find ourselves with a unique opportunity to expand the best digital stage globally, and you can help us achieve this goal.

We're looking for people who are motivated, self-starters, and interested in working at the intersection of live performances and technology. The number of shows streamed through our platform has skyrocketed, and our viewership has grown considerably. We are poised to take this to the next level, and you would be joining us at a time of tremendous growth.

Everyone has the ability to voice their ideas and make meaningful impact. Like many startups, we may wear different hats at different times.

Current openings:

Product/UX Designer

As a product designer, you may find yourself working on user-facing product features on most days, and internal-facing tools on other days. You will be the one to guide our overall design language, and have the opportunity to be intimately involved from ideation to implementation.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Is a good listener, takes feedback well, and likes to collaborate
  • Is a good communicator, comfortable to speak up and present your ideas
  • Is capable of staying aware of the needs of the user, the business, and of engineering (as well as the constraints)
  • Is a motivated self-starter, able to work independently or closely with a distributed team across timezones
  • Has 2+ years of work experience designing UX/UI

In this role, you will:

  • Rapidly prototype, ideate, and present your recommendations
  • Work through complex ideas and workflows, and simplify them without compromising usability
  • Create user experience and interaction designs that are functional, easy to use, and understand
  • Create visual designs that are clean and beautiful (without being overly fixated on pretty pixels)
  • Collaborate with product development, software engineering, production operations, and business functions

Bonus points if:

  • You like to and can code your own designs (you may not be asked to do so, but we like designers that know their CSS, HTML, and even some JavaScript)

Software Engineer, Frontend/Full-stack

In this role, you will find yourself primarily working on our front-end application, web optimizations, and streaming video experiences — but may also spend some time working on API and other fullstack related features — or on infrastructure and devops related tasks. While you will have the opportunity to contribute and add value across our full technology stack and be intimately involved from ideation to implementation, your day to day will be planned, focused and intentional.

We’re looking for someone with many of the following:

  • Has 3+ years of software development experience working as a frontend or full-stack engineer, with increasing levels of responsibility
  • Has solid experience working with ReactJS and/or React Native
  • Understands computer science fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, and modern methodologies)
  • Understands object oriented design patterns, service-oriented and api-driven architectures
  • Understands performance tradeoffs including caching techniques, network and roundtrip latencies, web performance and frontend optimization
  • Understands advanced frontend development including some of the following: modern JavaScript frameworks, ES6/ES7, TypeScript, frontend build tools such as Grunt, Gulp, WebPack, etc.
  • Has experience with OAuth, JWT or other authentication models and workflows
  • Stays on top of relevant innovations and emerging technologies
  • Is a good listener, takes feedback well, and likes to collaborate
  • Is a good communicator, comfortable to speak up and present your ideas
  • Is capable of staying aware of and balancing the needs of the user with the business (including constraints)
  • Is aware of “industry best practices” but doesn’t let that get in the way of new solutions and keeping an open mind

In this role, you will:

  • Have more emphasis on the user-facing aspects of our application stack, including web/mobile clients
  • Write clean, performant code to build application features and fix bugs (always keeping the users' needs in mind)
  • Work across the full technology stack (including Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Docker, React/AngularJS/Javascript, Elastic Search, Redis, AWS, PubNub and streaming video technologies) with a higher emphasis on application development
  • Contribute to architectural and technical design discussions
  • Help establish and uphold our engineering culture and best practices

Bonus points if:

  • Have experience with technical SEO
  • Have experience with WebRTC, RTMP, HLS, MPEG-DASH and related streaming technologies
  • Have experience with Node.js
  • Have experience using virtualization containers/infrastructure such as Docker, Kubernetes, etc.
  • Have a Computer Science or related engineering degree

Senior Software Engineer, Backend/Ruby-on-Rails

In this role, you will find yourself primarily working on API and other backend related features, streaming video experiences, infrastructure and devops related tasks, or on data lakes/warehousing and related reporting services.
