Engineering Manager - Periscope
Who We Are:
Just over a year ago, we became fascinated by the idea of discovering the world through someone else’s eyes. What if you could see through the eyes of a protester in Ukraine? Or watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia? It may sound crazy, but we wanted to build the closest thing to teleportation. While there are many ways to discover events and places, we realized there is no better way to experience a place right now than through live video. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around. Periscope was started by a few friends and the idea of letting people see the world through someone else’s eyes, a visual pulse of what’s happening - right now. Over the last few months, we have expanded the team and are looking for people just as excited about this vision.
