HEY THERE VANCOUVER!
"Who is Voxter?" You may be asking, well say farewell to Kansas Dorothy, because this might just blow you away.
We're a Vancouver based VOIP company that is on the rise and we are enthusiastically chucking out the old methods of business communication and replacing them with our shiny new platform and sophisticatedly simple software - which has been rocking the world of our business clients since we launched with our first customer in 2005. In short, we make business communication run smoother than a fresh jar of skippy.
Since 2005 we’ve grown to have hundreds of clients across the globe. We have POPs in San Jose, London, Tokyo, LA, Melbourne, Chicago, Toronto, and Vancouver (to name a few). Our goal is not only to continue to expand (we aim for world domination!), but to shake up how the world looks at business telecom and create an experience that our clients actually love to use!
Having been recently acquired by Ooma Inc, we’re poised for growth and ready to build out our already passionate and dedicated team.
And well, we’re hiring! We’re looking for a smart, critical thinker who is able to pick things up quickly to join the Engineering team as a Software Engineer. We’re not an ordinary company, so we don’t expect you to be ordinary either. If you love learning new stuff, enjoy digging into hard work and making the impossible happen - keep on reading!
You'll be responsible for building and maintaining new and existing features in our distributed service architecture. We continue to build new features on top of a modern stack - it consists of a database layer (CouchDB), an application layer (Kazoo https://github.com/2600hz/kazoo and a number of other individual applications), an audio transcoding/call routing layer (FreeSWITCH), and an SBC/proxy layer (Kamailio). Many parts of this stack are written in the programming language Erlang. Communications between components is often over the AMQP protocol; specifically, we use RabbitMQ. In this role, you will spend most of your development time on Kazoo or the other peripherals in the application layer. This will include some front-end development as necessary (largely in AngularJS). We value moving fast and responding to change quickly, so don’t hesitate to propose adoption of new technologies that help us deliver value and functionality to our customers.
Of course, sometimes you might have to spend some time on a cool side-project! Some examples of projects members of our team have built include a fitness data aggregation application to encourage staff health activities, a Chrome browser extension that takes advantage of our platform APIs, or a Mario Kart 64 race stats collector!
Sound like you? Might be time for you to put your headphones on and snuggle down to code with your favourite office dog, or grab a pair programming partner, and code away the afternoon…
We have a talented engineering team - people of all walks of life working on different projects. It’s like in a pirate ship, we may be a bunch of lunatics but we work as one, we pay attention and motivate each other, and often end the day with a good laugh. After all, you’re gonna need a team you can count on!
