About Airtime

We are Airtime, the world’s first social platform that gives friends the power to experience content together in real time. The only place where you can face-to-face video chat with your people while simultaneously interacting with content from across the web. 

Like many of us, we are tired of traditional social networking apps that aren’t designed to allow us to sync up and be present together in the moment. Frankly, we are tired of mindlessly scrolling through feeds, leaving comments that go unanswered, and having to hack our way around actually staying in contact with those we care about most (i.e. Finstas). Instead, we believe that real time interactions are more fulfilling as they allow us to connect with the people we care about in a more significant way. 

We are building the social platform for the generations to come and charting the course as a company that is bringing real time human interactions to the forefront.

Our company was founded by Sean Parker and is backed by Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, Founders Fund, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and a host of other incredible partners. We have a world-class team of brainiacs in Palo Alto and Brooklyn who craft the amazing real-time technology and experience that Airtime is built on. We're well-funded, running at full sprint, and always looking for extraordinary people who want to help us build a new way to use the Internet—together.

Airtime Product

We are a user-centered product team passionate about disrupting the status-quo in the current Social space. We believe that today’s social networks are inherently anti-social and provide an unfulfilling, lonely and disconnected experience.  Airtime provides a new way for users to share experiences together that lets them truly `Be Together` and `Do Things Together` as they would in real life. We are looking for Product leaders who share our passion for the space and would help us bring this audacious vision to fruition.

As the architect and owner of core aspects of our product vision, you will be responsible for thinking through some of our toughest UX feature challenges. You will be expected to blend in your concrete data driven understanding of product metrics with qualitative feedback and business goals to come up with a convincing and clear product strategy. The areas you will be involved in include: how users interact with rooms, in video chats, our messaging model, and our user experience focused on the “being together” and “doing things together” mantra of experiencing the internet in a new way.
