About You

You are a Javascript/Typescript magician. 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. You are interested in joining an early-stage startup and understand the tradeoffs that entail. 

If this sounds like you, we have an amazing opportunity for you. 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 Us

Our company story is unusual, in an exciting way — we’re trailblazers with a passion for emerging technologies. Founded in 2013 as the first consumer-VR devices were in development, High Fidelity built the first social VR platform and created groundbreaking immersive experiences experienced by people from around the world. We started building the “Metaverse” before most people had ever heard the word. In early 2022, the company invested in the virtual world Second Life, which included the acquisition of High Fidelity’s metaverse IP and team of experts. 

Given the massive opportunity to capitalize on High Fidelity’s core audio capabilities to power voice communication for thousands of apps and games, the company now focuses solely on audio technology. Today we’re a well-capitalized startup building next-generation spatial audio solutions that make the apps people use every day more engaging and delightful by delivering the most immersive and natural sound experience. Our Spatial Audio technology is currently used by tens of millions of people a week in applications like Clubhouse and Vatom. Our small but mighty team comprises seasoned-startup veterans, including audio engineers and streaming media pioneers, who have deep expertise in immersive audio.
