Software Engineer

The Product

Consumers record short-form video in our white-labeled mobile web experience which works in any mobile context. Vivoom adds super-high-end branded video effects and assets. Consumers share their video broadly. Their friends and followers watch it, like it, and are a look-alike audience. Brands see all the videos, moderate, curate, and distribute choice videos. This is User-Generated Advertising (“UGA”). It performs exceedingly well and everyone feels good about it. And it’s brand-safe.

Your Environment

You will wear lots of hats. As a startup, we believe all developers should understand operations and all “ops” should be software engineers. As a company, we want everyone to have a hand in crafting our product.

Vivoom has offices in Flemington, NJ, New York City, and Boston, MA. We live with video conferencing and Slack. Telecommuting is available for you, but we believe it’s good to mix it up in person too. You will report to Vivoom’s co-founder and CTO.

The Company

Vivoom is a technology company disrupting the way brands reach consumers. We are a top tier enabler of UGA, a multi-billion dollar market opportunity. Vivoom is building the UGA category and setting the industry’s standards. As context, we believe the $500 billion advertising industry is in crisis due to four major trends:

  1. Paid interruptive advertising, at scale, is a broken model.

  2. The “digital brand safety crisis” is reaching alarming levels.

  3. Big brands are doubling down on obtaining their own first-party data.

  4. Products that support and encourage consumer sharing are emerging as market leaders across all product categories.

Using Vivoom, our clients are building a deep advantage over competitors that they can build upon every single day to deliver even more value to consumers.

You can be part of a team with proven track records as pioneers in media, advertising and technology across companies including: Disney, Snap, Microsoft, Unilever, CBS, Viacom and others. Our solution is sold as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) license plus a cost per view as annual usage grows, aligning our incentives very squarely with our clients. Vivoom’s clients include: Capital One, Clorox, Crayola, Johnson & Johnson, among others.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
