Back End Engineer

Bermi is a video sharing app trying to reinvent and democratize the way content is shared online. As it is now, you can create a meme that goes viral and is used by millions of people and you end up with exactly zero dollars to show for it, while online content providers serve ads and profit from your meme. It might seem silly to worry about memes but if someone creates content that ends up being enjoyed by millions, they should reap the rewards. We think so, anyway.

Bermi uses the fact that cryptocurrencies have the ability to provide small fractional transactions in order to compensate people for liking, sharing, and recommending content. We envision a new world where profits from online content creation aren't distributed to the publishing platform in a winner-take-all fashion.

This opportunity is on-site, in New York City, and they sponsor h1b applicants.

Company Size and Health

Bermi is VC funded and they are a true product company. All the engineers have impressive backgrounds, coming from great schools or other great tech companies. But we don't discriminate against people based on pedigree. We let the quality of your code do the talking for you. The team is around 14 people and mostly engineers.

Bermi's office is a beautiful penthouse in Wall Street. The building has a pool and the office has many amenities, including beautiful views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, New Jersey, and Brooklyn. Snacks and meals are provided.

Bermi's video sharing app has 500,000 daily active users, mostly in Latin America. The only way to have a steep career trajectory is by either founding your own successful startup or by joining one. Successful startups grow much faster than they can hire good talent, so naturally there are always opportunities for you to pick up slack and provide additional value if you are so inclined. If you fill a responsibility vacuum well, you will most likely get promoted into that role, and you can keep that going until you rise to the C suite. Joining a company like Bermi, full of brilliant minds, maximizes your chances of experiencing an explosive career trajectory.
