About Livestorm:

Livestorm is the all-in-one video communication platform for companies looking to implement a powerful video communication strategy.

Founded in 2016, Livestorm enables companies to promote, host and analyze their online events. We’re building the future of unified video communication: an all-in-one video communication platform that connects to your tools and lives in your browser. Livestorm is a browser-based platform that doesn’t require a download, or setup. You can use Livestorm for on-demand, live, or pre-recorded meetings or events.

Livestorm has been built with ease-of-use in mind.

We serve companies of all sizes, from startups to Fortune500. Front, Honda, Intercom or Spendesk trust Livestorm to organize their meetings, webinars or online events. We are a product driven company which means that the quality of what we deliver matters most. We will always choose quality over quantity in terms of development.

Here are our core values:

  • Stay curious: Be interested in the world around you.
  • Remain humble: Keep learning and keep your ego in check.
  • Be resourceful: Go that extra mile in the most efficient way.
  • Own it: Take pride in what you do, own your wins, and fails.
  • Be transparent: Sharing knowledge, learnings, feedback, and mistakes.
  • Team description:

    As part of the tech team, you will join a crew of experts working on building the best product possible using the latest technologies and without compromise on the code legacy.


    • Backend: Ruby 2.7.1 (soon Ruby 3), Rails 6, NodeJS 12.20.1, Apollo Server
    • Datastores: PostgreSQL / Redis
    • Websockets: Anycable
    • Frontend: Vue.js
    • You'll work alongside our Head of Tech, Back-End Engineers, DevOps, and will be reporting to an Engineering Manager. You'll be able to join one of the current tribes, which will be defined upon assertion of your skills.

      The Dashboard Tribe goal is to build a maintainable, scalable and reliable software. It's heavily metrics / statistics oriented. Your opinion will be vital to nurture our product vision and avoid pitfalls. If you're passionate about databases and know your way around CQRS / event-driven architecture, this is for you.

      Ecosystem Tribe:

      The Ecosystem Tribe develops our public API and everything that has to do with relevant data synchronisation between Livestorm and 2nd/3rd-party softwares. Therefore, we are looking for someone which can be a partner in helping us scale up our integrations ecosystem and make sure Livestorm can be connected with all relevant softwares in the industry. If you've got experiences with third-party services such as SalesForce, Zapier or Hubspot, this will be perfect for you.

      Room Tribe:

      The Room Tribe is the one working to build the best video conference experience you can have with online events. It's mainly dealing architectural and design decisions around our real-time architecture (chat, polls, WebRTC/HLS). It best fits Back-End Developers with knowledge in Front-End as well.

      While Livestorm has headquarters in Paris, we are a remote-first company. As a matter of fact, Stormies are located between France, Germany, Greece, Mauritius, Spain, USA,... so we are looking for the best talent, no matter where you live.


      In this role, you'll be responsible for:

      • Leading the communication between Front-End and Back-End Teams and comprehend our entire stack
      • Accelerating our roadmap to create an impact on the company's growth
      • Incentivizing best practices from your past experiences at every level of the company (from interns to c-levels)
      • Shipping great products
      • Job requirements

        For this Back-End Engineer role, we are looking for someone with the following experience:


        • At least 2 years experience in Ruby and Rails (Rails 5+) and its ecosystem in production
        • Strong skills in SQL (mostly through PostgreSQL) and knowledge in code / data scalability (e.g CQRS)
        • Experience with workers and idempotency patterns (e.g Sidekiq)
        • Rigorous about testing and code quality (TDD, acceptance tests, unit tests)
        • Respect of SOLID principles, or any pattern helping with delivering great code
        • You love to make your code readable and get excited looking at beautifully written algorithms.
        • Plus:

          • Curious about GraphQL (e.g Apollo) and NodeJS
          • Interested by micro-service oriented architectures, DDD, event-driven design
          • When something breaks you don't roll on the floor crying, but rather take the lead to fix it up.
          • You are curious about new languages and aren't afraid of using new patterns and structures.
          • Team fit:

            • You're a team player and you have a sense of ownership.
            • You want to work with people from all over the globe (USA, Turkey, Belgium, France).
            • You're fluent in English (French is a plus)
            • You're up for a challenge.
            • Moreover, we are looking for someone who can work in the Paris timezone (we accept a time difference of 2 hours maximum).

              Confidence can sometimes hold us back from applying for a job. But we'll let you in on a secret: there's no such thing as a 'perfect' candidate. So however you identify and whatever background you bring with you, please apply if this is a role that would make you excited to come into work every day.
