As we have been building out our company website, I stumbled upon the first blog I wrote back in September. We were building frantically as we welcomed our first set of engineers, Dan Jolicoeur and Dave Tran, and were putting together a plan for working together with content creators to build our product. Fast-forward to March and we are actively hiring engineers and looking to work with more and more content creators to grow our private beta program. The conversations we are having with content creators continue to expand our thinking around the product and infuse an energy that is difficult to describe. These creators are truly excited to drive their input into the product and see how we have iterated around their feedback. So we welcome creators of all types, from the budding young producer, to the struggling (and successful) YouTuber, to the professional writer/producer/director. Likewise, we invite all content forms, including documentaries, sports, music, educational/how-to, comedy, news/politics, and more. We would love to bring you onto our private beta and partner with you as we grow the product over the coming months.

This movement on the private beta has really drummed up interest from like-minded engineers. We have been very open about the type of engineering we want to build the company around, everything from the technology that we have chosen, (Clojure, AngularJS, Datomic, Docker, Kubernetes), to the developer processes we use to steer us, (test-driven, continuous deployment), to the manner in which we choose to work (flexible hours/remote work/transparency/accountability). Ultimately, we are always interested in meeting polyglot engineers that think of languages as tools to match with a problem. As we solve problems around big data, analytics, machine learning and building a platform, we feel this is an interesting opportunity for engineers.

So, if you are a content creator or engineer, consider this an open invitation.
