Software Engineer, iOS / MacOS

Descript
Descript

Descript is building the next generation of tools for communicating with video and audio. We are a team of 40 (planning to double in 2021) — with a proven CEO and the backing of some of the world's greatest investors (Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint Ventures, Spark Capital). Descript HQ is in San Francisco, and our AI research team, Lyrebird, is based in Montreal.

Descript is the special company that's in possession of both product market fit and the raw materials (passionate user community, great product, large market) for growth, but is still early enough that each new employee has a measurable influence on the direction of the company.

As a small startup, Descript relies on employees who thrive in an environment where they are regularly called upon to translate high level goals into day-to-day priorities, and are regularly presented with technical and business challenges that extend beyond their comfort zone.

ABOUT the role


With the acceleration in remote work, we’re seeing a new surge of content creators within businesses who are using video as an effective medium to communicate with internal and external shareholders. Examples of use cases we’re seeing from our customers include code-review walkthrough videos, bug reporting videos, sales pitches to clients etc. As more businesses embrace remote work, we believe this unlocks a huge opportunity for Descript and the content creation space in general.

In this role, you’ll collaborate with Product and Design to shape the screen recording experience on Mac. Concretely, this entails building new functionality, improving product quality, as well as investing in the technical foundation.

As a member of the engineering team you'll play an integral role in the following:

  • Own building and shipping new features across all levels of the stack (frontend and backend)
  • Collaborate with product and design teams on crafting great user experiences
  • Write high-quality testable code that's functional, long term maintainable and performant
  • Introducing real-time collaborative workflows to audio/video production, where individual projects can be in the tens or hundreds of gigabytes

ABOUT you


  • 3+ years of professional software development experience building native iOS or macOS applications using Swift or Objective-C
  • Experience with Apple media frameworks (such as AVFoundation, Core Audio, Core Video, etc)
  • Self aware of strengths and seeking to constantly learn and improve
  • Strong written and verbal communication
  • Constant drive to learn and improve
