Software Engineer (hire #1) at Reality PlatformsPosted on: 06/01/2022

We're building a community-collected and community-owned alternative to Google Street View. There's a lot of latent demand for a comprehensive street view dataset that isn't tied to Google (which is a competitor to many of the potential users of street-view data). In the last few years consumer smartphones have gotten good enough to make them a viable means of collection, so we'll be relying on a community of "reality miners" to gather the imagery. The project uses cryptocurrency to track the distributed ownership of the dataset and pay out individual collectors when their data is accessed. But unlike many crypto projects which are just dressed-up Ponzi schemes, we have a solid, long-term business model! We just closed a $6M seed round and are looking to hire our first engineers. We have very strong compensation with both salary and equity.
