About Rally

Rally is a video conferencing platform enabling multiple conversations in parallel. You no longer have to take turns to speak, and can hop in and out of conversations with a click. This is perfect for happy hours, networking, and other social gatherings. We are being used by institutions like MasterCard, Harvard and a multitude of startups across North America.

About the role

We are looking for a talented UI/UX Designer who can design beautiful interfaces that inspire a feeling or warmth and connection. Rally is a real-time multiplayer experience with lots of intricate functionalities and configurable options - it's a very challenging design problem. The UX and UI in video hasn't changed much in the past 20-30 years and we believe now is the time (See links below to what we mean).

You'll be working very closely with the founders, early engineers, customers, and will be a major contributor to the voice and direction of the company. Let's make it happen! 🎉

Some roles and responsibilities:

  • Plan and implement new designs (We use Figma!)
  • Optimize existing user interface designs
  • Test for intuitively and experience
  • Communicate with clients to understand their business goals and objectives
  • Develop technical and business requirements and always strive to deliver intuitive and user-centered solutions
  • Combine creativity with an awareness of the design elements
  • Create prototypes for new product ideas
  • Test new ideas before implementing
  • Conduct an ongoing user research

Key requirement: Must be a fan of emojis! 🙏😏

Our Stack:

  • 🎥 WebRTC
  • 🌐 Kubernetes

  • 🔌 Websockets
  • 🛠 GraphQL
  • 💻 ReactJS

Rally is in some ways more like a realtime multiplayer video game than it is like a typical web application. We are streaming multiple video and audio streams, and must optimize CPU usage and framerate. We are managing real-time state and behavioural rules in a central "game" server, and firing off events to large numbers of clients in real-time. Lots of tough and interesting technical challenges to solve - not just another CRUD app 😀. Come join us in our quest to bring the energy back into online gatherings! 🙌
