Front End Engineers at Gather have the unique role of increasing the power and utility of the platform all while making sure it is intuitive for experts, novices, and people who have never played Pokemon. You will be responsible for taking a beautiful design from the Design team, filling in gaps with your own UI intuitions, and bringing it to life in React.
Gather is looking for Engineers who are constantly finding ways to improve the web client, mapmaker, dashboard, and everything else while maintaining a high level of usability. After all, as a FE engineer you're in the unique position of being able to add features to the site and make them actually useful and intuitive. Tens of thousands of people per day (and counting) depend on it!
Help us build an interconnected web of new worlds, a better way to work remotely, and a spatial social network!
We are building a virtual universe which fundamentally improves how people interact online.
Today, that means a powerful remote-social platform. We already have people working out of our office spaces, attending our virtual conferences, or going to school on our campus spaces. We have folks hosting everything from magic conventions to artist EP launches to thanksgiving dinners, and even a few weddings.
The mission of Gather is to remove physical constraints on peoples' lives, and provide a virtual world which surpasses the real one in interconnectedness, personal touch, and expressiveness.
In a few short months, we've gone from nothing to millions of page views per month, >1 million monthly users in Gather spaces, and numerous paid events running around the clock. Every day, we hear that this "Pokemon x Zoom thing" is the video calling platform people didn't know they were missing.
Joining Gather means jumping on a fast-moving train where you'll get plenty of agency and the potential to have huge impact in an early-stage platform changing how people live and work. These are unsolved, open ended problems with tons of room (and need) for creativity. Help us take Gather to the next level!
