Great to have: experience working with internet video and/or WebRTC. About Us Viewabo is a startup that is working on making remote support better than in-person support by allowing businesses to see things as their customer sees them. Our product allows support agents to request smartphone camera access from consumers so that they can send live-streamed video of what they’re looking at to the agents, with tools for agents to help guide consumers on resolving their issues. This makes it much faster to figure out the problem and fix them, compared to a lot of back and forth questions and answers on the phone, in email, or in chat. We are an internationally-oriented team with teammates from the U.S. and Taiwan. Our founder comes from Silicon Valley in the U.S. and our company culture reflects an open and flexible working environment. How To Apply Sound like a good fit?
