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!
