At Remote Social, we believe connected teams work better together. We are on a mission to help remote and hybrid teams stay connected even when they are physically apart.
Long after the events of 2020 have been resolved, we know most businesses will move to a hybrid working model moving forward. Whilst remote or hybrid working brings many benefits, it also comes with some pretty serious impacts on people’s health and wellbeing.
Loneliness and isolation are just two of the most common complaints about working from a home environment. Remote Social exists to provide activities and experiences that help bridge the isolation gaps. We're here to help people connect in meaningful ways.
We are looking for engineers who are passionate about delivering world-class experiences. Individuals who are relentless about quality and care deeply about how our customers will benefit from using our products.
Remote Social is a platform that helps bring people together with their teams, friends, or family for socialising online. Using fun interactions such as games and collaborative activities we provide the space for people to get to spend time together.
Remote Social starts with the Remote Social Hub - how original! This is the place customers come to find activities to run with their hybrid teams and see the interactions that teams are having each week.
From the Remote Social Hub our customers can schedule any of our self-built games and activities, or browse a marketplace of hosted experiences provided by thrid-party partners.
Alongside The Hub, we have built a number of games and activities that customers can play with their teams. These include standalone apps like:
These apps encourage teams to get together and take part in learning more about each other or take each other on in friendly competition.
Each app is built as a standalone web app using React and Redux connected together through Google Firebase. Our apps lean heavily into the engaging UX you expect from more established game companies and we emphasise fun and quirky interactions. All our games are designed to encourage team socialising, with the goal being to spend time together with colleagues and friends, not to “win the game”.
You are passionate about bringing people together and love building fun interactions that encourage sharing and collaboration. You may have already put thought into experiences that bring people together and have potentially built something either for a previous role or in your own time.
You have experience working with React and ideally Firebase (AWS is also OK) to build real-time interactions in a serverless environment. You’ve spent time thinking through the challenges of keeping a React client from being exploited to make games less fun and have experience building quickly to test with real customers.
So, if you are a Full-Stack Developer and want to join a small but growing team as we build the future of team socialising online, we would love to hear from you. The role will initially focus on delivering interactive web-based applications, including games.
With the option to be based either in Sydney, or remote, you'll be working closely with the founding team.

We’d love to see things you’ve built.
