Senior Javascript Engineer

About You

You love to write low-level JavaScript/Typescript code. You prefer to write your own frameworks because you know they will be more robust and reliable than cobbling various libraries together. You’re curious and excited about audio processing, subsystems, and mathematics. You aren't scared by the idea of coding in assembly or hyper-optimizing for efficiency. You care deeply about quality, are proud of your work, and love to learn new things. You've been known to read technical white papers in your free time. 

If this sounds like you, we have an opportunity for you to sink your teeth into. You will be on the ground floor of the next critical phase of High Fidelity. You will be an owner and driver of code and will directly influence our strategy.

About The Role

We are looking for an experienced Senior JavaScript Engineer to join our team to own and build first-of-its-kind WebRTC and WASM audio solutions. You will transfer High Fidelity’s existing audio processing technologies into web-based tools that any developer looking to integrate voice communication into their platform or app will want to use. You should demonstrate exceptional problem-solving, software architecture design, framework testing, and programming skills. 

Your first project will be to craft a robust enterprise-grade codebase that will serve as the foundation of High Fidelity’s future audio innovations. You will help us push the boundaries of what can be done in a web browser.

About Us

Founding Story

With the release of the Oculus and the promise of mass consumer-adoption of VR, High Fidelity set out to build the metaverse infrastructure that would support the next generation of user-generated virtual worlds and experiences. The company blazed trails for the digital worlds of tomorrow — including how these worlds will sound.

The Next Chapter

High Fidelity is more than our company name — it’s our credo. We have witnessed and experienced the transformational power of delivering high fidelity sound. We believe audio technologies should be designed for how the human brain is wired to process auditory information so people can feel as engaged with a digital experience as they would with a physical one. The portion of our lives that are spent wearing headphones should mirror the sonic richness we experience in the natural world.

Why Us?

If your team is too large, too slow, or more concerned with cutting costs than building cutting-edge technology, we might be exactly what you're looking for. We’re a small, seasoned team that trusts one another to be the expert in their domain and who are relentless about getting the job at hand done. Together, our mission is to connect people with extraordinary digital audio.
