Full-stack Engineer - Riff
United Kingdom
Full-time (remote)

Riff is a new class of voice tool for teams to collaborate in real-time. Instant, frictionless and always on, Riff makes it feel like your team is back in the same room, so you can chat about work while focusing on the actual work.

• Exposure to Electron client-side applications on MacOS, Windows and Linux

• Dedicated to building beautiful products that will transform the way we work, live and connect with one another for the better.
We believe that the best software is built by teams of smart, motivated people from diverse backgrounds.

We've worked with programmers who've been artists 🎨 , writers ✒️ , musicians 🎶, astrophysicists 🌠, chemists 👨🏾‍🔬, doctors 🩺, psychologists 🛋 and mathematicians 🧑🏽‍🏫 . Some who've come through traditional higher education and others who have traveled a different path.

We want highly skilled programmers but we don't care how you got there. Join us if you believe in the power of technology to change society for the better.
