Make remote work more fun at Venue. We give distributed teams creative tools to bring their remote culture to life.

About the role

Venue makes remote work more fun. We make creative tools for companies to bring their remote culture to life. Our first product transforms big remote meetings into interactive livestreams. We draw inspiration from spaces like streaming culture, Discord and TV broadcast production to create a place where teams can:

  • Reflect their unique personality and culture.
  • Create a vibe that’s fun, energizing, authentic and spontaneous.
  • Provide a safe and inclusive space for colleagues to interact how they want to.

As a result, we’re seeing higher meeting attendance, better in-meeting engagement and remote team members that feel more energized and connected post meeting!

Why Work at Venue?

We are a well-funded, early traction startup. We are backed by Accel, who are also early investors in products we are inspired by like Slack, Discord, and Spotify. We are also a Y Combinator (W22) company. Our mission is also endorsed by over a dozen angel investors, including Stewart Butterfield (founder of Slack), Anthony Casalena (founder of Squarespace), and Job van de Voort (founder of Remote.com).

Venue is being used everyday by world class remote first companies such as Shopify, PwC, Loblaw Digital, and more. We have run over 2,500 meetings for over 250,000 people on our platform, bringing more fun to over 3 million meeting minutes in the last 18 months.

As a remote first company working with our customers on the frontier of remote work, we’re open and experimental with how our team collaborates.

That means you can:

  • Work from anywhere
  • Take time off whenever you’d like. We care about time well spent so there is a no Slack policy when you’re on vacation.

We don’t believe that you have to trade off family vs work. Most of our co-founders have young kids and we are flexible to find individual arrangements that enable us to be fulfilled and productive in both areas

  • Typescript/React/Redux (plus many other libraries) for frontend, Ruby on Rails / PostgreSQL / Firebase for backend and data storage.
  • WebRTC (video/audio) and real time applications in large scale (hundreds to thousands of participants).
  • We believe in buy first, build next. We look for the best players in a space and integrate with them as soon as possible and make both the product and our partners look good.
