Engineering at Agave

Engineering team and processes

The team is just starting to get formed, so we're small and nimble! We're currently one frontend engineer, a full-stack engineer, and the CEO who also is technical. We do weekly check-ins, review each other's PRs and use linters for consistent code style. We all have push access to production (Firebase).

Technical Challenges

Video calls that happen when two people are in proximity to each other in the virtual office. We have a highly responsive app with a fun game-like interface. We're using Electron for the desktop wrapper and looking to eventually optimize experiences across platforms (desktop for now, but eventually mobile).

Projects you might work on
  • Manage 5 or more characters moving around the screen at the same time

  • Show the current app name that has focus on the user's desktop (eg Spotify or Chrome)

  • Display the local user's time, weather, and city in the sidebar
