TokBox develops and operates OpenTok, a global service that enables you to add live face-to-face video experiences to any web or mobile property. We believe that integrating live video into products should be simple, whether you’re developing an app for one-to-one calls or for complex large-scale broadcasts.
OpenTok is a flexible platform that leverages cutting-edge video, audio, and networking technologies such as WebRTC to bring the best possible experience to your browser or device through simple APIs.
In 2012, TokBox was acquired by Telefónica Digital, a division of Telefónica S.A.@tefdigital is the global digital technology and innovation arm of Telefónica, the leading global integrated communications operator.
We are also driving innovation in over the top communications under a new umbrella brand called TU and in Big Data through Telefónica Dynamic Insights. Telefónica Digital will deliver these new products and services to Telefónica's 311 million customers as well as entering new markets. We're headquartered in London with regional centres in Silicon Valley, Sao Paulo, Spain and Tel Aviv.
Our team is dynamic and energetic, but most of all, we're passionate about building innovative products and having fun in the process.

I have been working at TokBox full-time (More than a year)
Live video market is hot!
Excellent company culture
Building temperature control is a bit unpredictable
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TokBox (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.
I had a couple of phone interviews with related technical engineers then a face-to-face interview with multiple people in TokBox' office. As this is a DevOps position so all the technical questions were of topics such as scaling, monitoring, infrastrucuture as code... The answers are varied based on your own experience of course but obviously they liked mine :).
One thing that I like about the face-to-face interview is we actually talked about real problems facing TokBox and my current organization and how to deal with them. It turned out to be more of a working session /discussion than interview and we exchanged a lot good ideas how to make things better.
The upper management has good visions and committment to fullfil those. The employees are very well-mannered and open. Great team feeling in general.
The offer is definitely a step above Bay Area standard. I had multiple offers at the time so didn't take TokBox in the end because of personal reason. But you are interested in a place to grow your career and also have fun, this is it.
