Pre-Series A

Geneva is an early-stage startup based in New York City building a highly-flexible group messaging app that makes it easy for everyone to have genuine conversations with the people they care about.

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.

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 follows a lightweight kanban structure. Our process leans on tools like Jira, GitHub, and Slack.

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 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 help build our native mobile applications.

  • You will help backend engineering efforts to ensure a quality user experience on our platform.
