MIXhalo Senior iOS Engineer in SAN FRANCISCO, California
Title: Senior iOS Engineer
Come join us at Mixhalo! We are an audio-tech start-up co-founded by guitarist Mike Einziger, and violinist Ann-Marie Simpson, and run by serial entrepreneur and veteran product executive, John Vars. We build wireless solutions for real-time data delivery at live events. Starting first in the music industry, we have built a platform to allow concert-goers to stream the same in-ear audio feed that musicians get on stage – direct from the mixing board (as opposed to blasted over huge speakers into the open air). We have so far partnered with incredible acts like Metallica, Aerosmith, Pharell, and Charlie Puth, among others. We have leveraged the same technology to make multiple channels of real-time play-by-play commentary available through partnerships with the Sacramento Kings, the Los Angeles Football Club, and others.
This is an exciting time for Mixhalo! We are preparing to launch with national scale just as the live events industry is preparing to come roaring back! We are now growing our team and expanding our product offering. Want to be part of the journey?
