Who We Are

Curastory was created so that video could be simpler. We were frustrated with platforms controlling our videos, so we decided to do something about it — starting with a service that allows creators to edit, monetize, and distribute their videos to all of their platform channels, 100% free. Long term, our aim is to simplify every part of the video creation, monetization, and distribution process, bettering the lives of all video creators + the experience for their viewership audiences. We’re backed by the early investors of Snapchat, Cameo, and Giphy that believe in our vision for the future of video, and we are aiming to build a company that powers every video for audiences everywhere.

Join the Curastory team as we continue to evolve our product to meet the needs of our creators, brand partners, end-user audiences, and provide a much-needed change to the way video is created, monetized, and consumed forever.

Where You’ll Come In

At Curastory, we have a very strong culture of deploying products for our users with a scalable tech stack built from company coding standards and guidelines. No tech debt here. The Engineering team, specifically works on constantly evolving our tech bringing our product to higher levels.

As a Senior Full Stack Engineer on Curastory’s Engineering team, you will leverage your strong programming abilities to continue to help build our video software marketplace from the ground up serving creators in editing, monetizing, and distributing their videos to all of their social video channels. As well as, our self-serving advertisement platform for video matching, monetization, and distribution on the brand partner side. You will use your well-demonstrated communication skills to collaborate with all engineering colleagues to build products quickly across all company departments. The ideal candidate we're looking for would be someone who has a desire to work across our stack in a full stack focused environment. If you are someone who is strong with NodeJS, proficient with React, and understand NextJS, we would love for you to apply.

This is a highly visible role, working closely with stakeholders across the company, including our Chief Executive Staff, User Experience, and Customer Success teams. You will be reporting directly to the team's Staff Engineer and will have a strong influence on the design of our products pre-development.
