Job details

mmhmm is an all-in-one platform for making, watching, and talking on videos. We’re on a mission to make video an everyday tool that’s accessible to everyone to communicate in the modern workplace.

We believe that making a video should feel as effortless as sending a text message, as quick as a chat, and as human as a coffee break. 

Founded in May 2020, mmhmm is a fully distributed, global company that builds products and services to make the Out-of-Office (OOO) work lifestyle possible. 

mmhmm is an All Turtles company. All Turtles is a globally distributed product studio that solves meaningful problems.

As a Staff Software Engineer at mmhmm, you’ll work as part of a small cross-functional team of designers and engineers to create and improve end-user experiences in the browser. While your day-to-day responsibilities will focus on developing single page applications using non-framework Javascript, you’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to product design and the overall system architecture.

You’re the right person for this job if you love to work on small, autonomous teams, take pride in the quality of both the code and user experiences that you create, and are passionate about developing for the browser.


  • Working closely with product designers to refine and implement new ideas, rapidly taking them from concept to release.
  • Building both quick prototypes and robust production systems.
  • Helping to set the technical direction for our web applications, including choosing new components of the tech stack and evolving architecture.
  • Planning and coordinating with backend engineers to design APIs and infrastructure.
  • Developing testing strategies to ensure the quality of your work.


  • Spent at least 5 years in professional software engineering roles.
  • Built complex web-based products from scratch. You’re an expert at building applications in HTML, CSS and vanilla JavaScript.
  • Ideally you’ll have experience with WebGL, WebRTC, WebAudio, WebCodecs/MediaRecorder and WebSockets.
  • Worked closely with designers to create new experiences. You speak their language and share their values.
  • Worked on projects that are user-centric. You’re passionate about making products that real people will find indispensable.
  • Worked on a variety of projects. You’ve got breadth to go with your depth.
  • Exceptional communication skills, with an aptitude to convey clear thoughts and ideas.
  • Worked in a startup environment. You’re comfortable with ambiguity and change.
  • Delivered on ambitious goals. At the end of the day, you’re a doer.
  • Strong foundation in computer science fundamentals (inheritance, object-oriented programming, etc.).

Our Principles

As a company, we realize that talent is evenly distributed throughout the world, but opportunity is not. We believe that you should work where you can have the best impact, and live where you can have the best life. 


The salary range for this position is $177,000-$219,000 for a full-time employee or equivalent for a contractor based in the United States, but it may vary depending on your specific skills and experience. We’ve invested the time and effort to develop salary levels for all of our roles, for both individual contributors and managers. These levels are based on national compensation data, and are weighted to be competitive in the most expensive markets in the US. Final leveling and cash compensation will be determined at the end of the interview process.

Distributed Facilities Supplement 

We are a fully distributed team, however it is still our responsibility to make sure that employees have a safe, healthy, and productive work environment. We provide each employee with a monthly distributed facilities supplement for them to spend on whatever each employee thinks will give them a healthier and more productive work environment.

Turtle-Crossing Bonus

We believe that in-person time is precious and best spent building, rather than spending, ‘relationship capital’. To encourage those moments to take place, we offer a ‘Turtle-Crossing’ bonus to employees when they meet in person to build and strengthen relationships with one another.

Health and Vacation Programs

We also offer comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance to our employees and their dependents, where available, as well as parental leave and unlimited vacation (plus an annual vacation bonus).

The Staff Software Engineer, JavaScript is a contract position reporting to the VP of Engineering. Our distributed team works primarily across North American time zones. While this role is partly asynchronous, the ability to work hours that overlap with those time zones is preferred.

All Turtles and mmhmm are committed to creating and fostering a diverse team. We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds and all walks of life to apply. We’re committed to providing reasonable accommodations to all applicants throughout the application process.
