At Hopin, we’re reimagining events. Our mission is simple: we exist to make the world feel closer. 

Founded in 2019, Hopin brings brands and communities together around highly interactive and engaging experiences. We believe that people should have access to the conversations, moments and ideas they care most about, no matter where they are.  Through our highly scalable platform, participants are able to learn, engage, and connect from anywhere in the world. 

Hopin started as a virtual events solution but we have since meaningfully expanded our offering from virtual events to hybrid and in-person events, as well as video and workplace collaboration products. This growth has been fueled by a series of strategic acquisitions, including: Boomset - an all-in-one event management platform; Attendify - advancing Event Marketing products; StreamYard - unveiling a video production Studio; video hosting service Streamable and video technology company Jamm.

Listed as one of the 2021 Fast Company Best Workplaces for Innovators, Hopin has scaled to 800+ employees working remotely across 38 countries. Valued at $7.75B, Hopin raised a $450M Series D round of financing and is backed by top tier investors, including Arena Holdings, Altimeter Capital, Adam Street Partners, Untitled Investments, XN Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, DFJ Growth, General Catalyst, GIC, IVP, Northzone, Salesforce Ventures, Slack, Temasek and Tiger Global.

The Role

As part of the Sessions pod, you'll be shaping the future of a core component in the event experience: interactive live discussions. We provide the tools to help organisers, speakers and attendees engage with their community in sessions that feel closer than a typical lecture or meeting.

We are looking for a self-motivated engineer with a passion for our business and for technology innovation. We look for individuals with deep knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML who are comfortable writing custom JavaScript but also know when to apply off-the-shelf solutions for the problem. We also value people who are advocates for user experience and seek to get the little details right. We currently work with TypeScript, React, and Next.js, but the ability to adapt to changing technology is an important strength. You believe in leaving things better than you found it - whether that be a piece of code, a jira ticket, or the new team you’re joining. We have a #NoEgo philosophy, so we love to collaborate and learn from each other together to come up with the best solution.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
