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.
Based in downtown San Francisco, CA and a short walk from CalTrain and Bart. Additional offices are located in Spain, Australia, and England.
I have been working at TokBox full-time (More than a year)
Tokbox cares about it's people. The company understands work-life balance and when people are happy, they produce good work and products. The nature of Tokbox culture is caring about what you create and do, having a strong moral compass, being intelligent and making sound decisions. With that said, Tokbox hires intelligent, team oriented, and goal driven people that fit the mold. I give Tokbox 125% because they invest in and care about me in return. There is room for creativity, hard work, humor, humanity, success, and failures in order to grow and succeed. Also, lunch is included, we like to hang out together, the pay is competitive, and benefits are great.
Growing pains are present, best to go with the flow.
I applied online. I interviewed at TokBox (San Francisco, CA) in December 2017.
I applied online and was contacted to setup a video interview for the initial screen with the hiring manager. Questions were related to cloud-architecture, automation, and systems administration. Was invited on-site for an interview with the team. I spoke with three/four different people discussing topics like configuration management, CI/CD architecture, and also had a general exercise with building, deploying, and scaling a simple, hypothetical app on AWS.
After the initial on-site, the hiring team was good about keeping me in the loop, and we shortly setup a second on-site interview. This involved some similar follow-up exercises involving Docker.
Although I eventually received an offer, I had to decline for personal reasons relating to where I was in my job search, and completely unrelated to TokBox. I would encourage anyone interested in joining an established DevOps team to interview with this team, as they have a modern workflow and tooling, and a friendly environment. Also, I think the building (SoMa SF) has some perks, like a free shuttle to Bart/Caltrain.
