Apply Here is one of the fastest-growing consumer applications in gaming! Our users capture and share millions of videos every week, and connect with one another around their shared gaming experiences.

We are an international fully remote team, where everyone works autonomously with the expectations that you can be available for team syncs in the same core hours (9:00 am and 12:00 pm PST). The exact times and days vary per team.

We're a productive team shipping code to production 20-30 times a week, working on the platform powering all the other teams at Medal. We have a fast feedback loop where code generally hits live users within minutes of a merge. As part of the team, you'll be working with product and frontend teams to ship new features and improvements across all of our features, which includes everything from video processing to social integrations and everything in between, but primarily the API used by the other teams.

We outsource most typical business needs and focus on building what is unique to Medal. You'll be part of an experienced engineering team and your work will be used by millions of gamers around the world. You will be working on helping us scale the platform to 100 million users by building features that our creators love.

We're a small engineering team spread across US and EU time zones. As a team, we favor progress, learning, and speed, over perfection.
