Active Roles

Why join us?

  • Super strong team of engineers and designers who have sold companies before and get along really well (we like playing all sorts of games together).

  • We're in a unique situation since we've raised a Series A from Andreessen Horowitz and the team is still just 6 people.

  • We're building at the intersection of social+ and gaming, 2 of the fastest-growing & exciting spaces right now, and our users love our product.


Engineering at Lowkey

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is currently composed of very experienced developers who each own a really large chunk of responsibility (i.e. the mobile app, the api, the Electron app) and can move extremely fast. We operate on weekly cycles, with all-hands on Friday mornings and meetings ad hoc throughout the week when needed.

Ultimately, there's a very high level of freedom, trust, and autonomy, while still maintaining lots of communication. We're pretty mindful of posting updates (however small or seemingly meaningless) so that everyone's on the same page.

Technical Challenges
  • Building native mobile tools to manipulate and edit video
  • Constructing UI elements to be extremely intuitive and simple, while still allowing powerful edits
  • Performant desktop recording to capture video without impacting the game
Projects you might work on
  • Work closely with designers to build out mobile + web user flows from start to finish

  • Design and implement entire features from concept to user feedback, such as a specific creator tool

Working at Lowkey

Everyone on the team cares deeply about what we're building and as such, as a high level of pride for what we build. Our team is resourceful, skilled, and willing to do whatever it takes. We also get along really well and that's something we're hoping to build upon.

Diversity and Inclusion

We try to do fun things outside of work together: chess, Geoguessr, skribbl.io, video games
