Here at SageSpot, we are changing the way we interact in the digital world. SageSpot is a subscription-based social media platform that empowers users to explore & discuss what they love through individual communities built by their favorite creators

SageSpot is building a better social network. It is a daring thing to try to displace the norms set by legacy social media platforms. This journey demands a team of individuals with great enthusiasm, undefeatable optimism, and extraordinary creativity. While our goal is ambitious, we know that we can succeed with team members dedicated to supporting one another in pursuit of the same mission: creating a better online experience for all.

Picture this:

An online experience where you connect with other users who have the same passions and interests that you do (not just who you happen to know in real life)

An experience where you can participate in thought-provoking conversation and consume premium content from the very best and brightest Creators. Most importantly, this allows you to avoid the chaos of legacy social media platforms

An experience where Creators are justly compensated for their hard work, expertise and talent (not left to rely on ads and sponsorships while platforms rake in billions in annual revenue)

Doesn’t that sound pretty cool? That is SageSpot. That is what we are building. And, that is what we want you to help bring into the world.

We are so excited to be growing the SageSpot family. We would love to talk more about the open roles if you are interested in building something truly special. Email us at jobs@sagespot.com!

Engineering at SageSpot

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on weekly cycles. At the start of each week we meet to discuss task/feature priorities, time estimates, and task/feature assignments. Throughout the week we demo features as they are completed. Engineers typically work directly with our CTO/CEO to spec a feature and then drive the feature to completion individually. We use Gitlab for project management and source control management. We use pull requests to review each other's code. All our engineers are expected and empowered to push well-tested code to production through our CI/CD pipelines.

Technical Challenges

We are building a social media platform that needs to support many concurrent users. As a part of this we need to deliver to our users vast amounts of user-created media (VOD, images, rich text) and provide user-to-user connectivity (text and video messaging). Also, as a platform that creators can run their business on, we collect, analyze large amounts of user data and present meaningful business insights gleaned from that to creators.

Projects you might work on
  • Adding new features that help users connect to other passionate users as well as enhance the experience for Creators looking to share their expertise and knowledge. This can be through chat features, new content systems or live features

  • You would get to work on our React based responsive, progressive web-app.

  • You would get to work new features like user connection/friending from design to implementation.
