Job Description

UberConference, funded with $18M from Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures, takes the pain out of teleconferencing. We make it easy to join, know who's participating, know who's speaking, and see participants' LinkedIn and Google+ public profiles. Our service leverages elegant UI on web and mobile clients to transform an industry that hasn't seen real innovation in decades. In the year since we won first prize at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, we've grown dramatically and have a truly amazing pipeline of new services planned.


As a member of Firespotter’s engineering team, you will be responsible for the design, development and deployment of products that will make real world engagements seamless. This ranges from the development of rich web experiences, to designing and developing the APIs used by our iOS and Android clients, to low level performance optimization.  We're looking for engineers who are capable and excited about working on all levels of code from database interaction up through the frontend. Our engineers play a key role in product development, from concept to launch, so be ready to bring your creative ideas to the table.



  • Write server-side code for web-based applications, create robust applications and develop prototypes quickly.

  • Scale our architecture and improve performance to handle 1M new users each month.

  • Design and implement scalable and reliable technologies across our platform.

  • Make changes across databases, optimize server and client code.



  • BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or related technical discipline (or equivalent).

  • Experience building products for fast growing web or mobile products

  • Comfortable in a small, intense and high-growth start-up environment.
