About LiveKit

LiveKit is revolutionizing the AI landscape by providing the essential network infrastructure that powers multimodal AI interfaces, enabling seamless audio and visual interactions. Founded in 2021, LiveKit has rapidly grown to support over 20,000 developers, including industry giants like OpenAI, Character AI, Spotify, and Meta. Our open-source tools facilitate real-time audio and video applications across various sectors, from customer support to autonomous farming. With a recent $22.7 million Series A funding led by Altimeter Capital, LiveKit is valued at $110 million and continues to drive innovation in AI's "nervous system," ensuring efficient and scalable data transfer to enhance AI capabilities.

While LiveKit operates as an infrastructure company, we believe that every detail matters—from backend to frontend, from a single line of code to a single pixel. Design is not just how it looks, but how all the pieces work and fit together — from a developer landing on our homepage to connecting and interacting with our APIs for the first time.

We’re in search of a Product Designer to be one of the first members of our design team. The ideal candidate will have experience in designing developer tooling and is excited about the future of realtime voice and video and AI.
