Pre-Series A

Geneva is a startup based in New York City building a flexible communication platform to bring communities together.

We know that being part of a group is vital to people's happiness and wellbeing, but the tools and platforms most of us are using today aren't really designed to help us build and participate in positive communities. The way we see it, most social media platforms are too public and chaotic, but most chat apps are super limited and rigid. So we're creating Geneva as something in between: a new utility designed to actually bring people together. We believe in a new digital world — one where privacy is respected, power is distributed, and accountability is emphasized.

We've obsessed with building the best possible product for our users, and to do that we know we need to build the best team possible. We're looking engineers that are exceptional at their craft, and even better as human beings.

Engineering at Geneva
Engineering team and processes

We're a small aggressively solution focused engineering team. We spend less time worrying about process and hierarchy, operating in a largely flat organizational structure, and focus more on ownership/responsibilities and transparent communication.

Our workflow process, like our team, is minimalist but effective. Our process leans on tools like Airtable, GitHub, and Notion.

Technical Challenges

We want to enable communities around the world to communicate and collaborate in a secure, safe, robust, private, and efficient manner. These are not easy goals.

On the infrastructure side, we're building a world class messaging platform to facilitate large scale real time and async group conversations across international boundaries. Our real time delivery platform is designed in a distributed fault-tolerant architecture. We strive for insanely fast messaging at scale with the lowest infrastructure costs imaginable.

On the UI side we want to build a beautiful user experience for everyone. Period. Not just gamers, or tech startups, or people nostalgic for decades old interfaces. This requires both product and engineering teams that are driven first and foremost by maniacal love and empathy for their users.

Projects you might work on
  • You will build a best in class communication platform designed to scale to moon while keeping costs down. We obsess over speed, reliability, and ROI.
