Role Description

Fam is the best way to socialize on your phone in a way that's most similar to interacting in real life. We’re a social network that helps you connect with friends and new people through live video chat. We believe that the way people socially interact on their phones is fundamentally broken, and causing widespread anxiety, insecurity, and loneliness - and we have the foundation to solve that for an entire generation.

We recently hit the top of the App Store charts, and are showing early retention that mirrors Instagram in 2012 (75% d1/50% flat lined), with an average time spent of 30 minutes per user per day.

We’re building a distributed team with hubs in New York City and Los Angeles. As founders, we’ve led Product, Engineering, and Design teams at Instagram and Facebook. We’ve raised more than $3.5 million in funding from leading investors including Pear, Greylock, Y Combinator, and the early investors in Facebook.

We’re looking for a backend engineer with experience building at scale for consumer mobile apps to join our team as a Founding Engineer. You’ll be implementing new product experiences that will ship to hundreds of thousands of users multiple times per week. You’ll be fully integrated into the product/design process, and own features from conception to roll out.

You’ll collaborate closely with our founders and will report to the CEO. This is a unique opportunity for someone who wants to be at the ground floor of a generational Social Network. We’re a creative and fast-moving team that’s passionate about unlocking the full potential of technology to help people connect. If you are a human centric product thinker, and driven by impact at scale, we’d love to work with you!

We went from zero to 300,000+ monthly active users in just over 20 days with 50+ video calls per user per day being performed in the app. We're hiring a Founding iOS Engineer as we look to build more immersive live video experiences beyond the first 1,000,000 users.
