Senior JavaScript Engineer

Producing software videos is time-consuming, people-intensive and the videos become obsolete with every new software release. By using AI and Automation, we read documents, learn about a customer’s software, and make videos without human interaction. Videate makes software videos easy.


We are hiring a Senior JavaScript Engineer to drive the development of our patented video rendering technology. The Videate Engine runs in our AI cloud turning documentation into seamless movies that pass the video Turing test. 

Reporting to the VP of Engineering, you will assume the principal role of improving and extending this technology as we acquire more customers. You will be in the mix of all company software development, as this core technology is behind the scenes for 100% of our customers. Additionally, candidates will need to understand browsers head-to-toe and will maintain a number of Chrome extensions that support the video rendering engine operations.

You will be working on a platform and core technology that does video generation, so video editing experience and/or a passion for shooting and editing video is a huge plus, but not required.

With the state of the art for single-page applications being what it is, a profound understanding of the JavaScript runtime environment is required. Candidates should have a master-level understanding of vanilla Javascript and are adept at a number of server-side frameworks.  You will work daily with:

  • JavaScript / Node.js
  • PostgreSQL / Redis / Couchbase
  • Docker
  • Browser extensions, Chrome primarily, building towards cross-browser compatibility
  • BASH / Linux command line
  • Video recording in Linux

  • Deep knowledge of the good and bad parts of JavaScript
  • Expert understanding of browser runtimes, DOM, and rendering
  • Expertise with common enterprise messaging patterns
  • Extensive experience with test-driven development and retrofitting test suites
  • Productionizing prototype systems
