Meet Owl Labs

Owl Labs’ mission is to solve a problem we’ve all experienced: meetings suck, and they are especially painful for the remote participants on the other side of the call. Considering the rapid growth in remote and distributed work, this is a perfectly timed problem for Owl Labs to solve. The market is hungry for products and content that make remote and distributed work better.

With $7.3M funding from Playground Venture’s Andy Rubin (co-founder of Android) and Boston’s Matrix Partners, Owl Labs created the Meeting Owl, a 360° smart video conferencing camera that sits in the center of the table and uses robotics algorithms to automatically highlight different people as they talk. After launching the product in June 2017, thousands of companies have purchased the Meeting Owl, saying it offers the most natural and inclusive meeting experience they’ve ever seen.

Career opportunity:

If you join the Owl Labs team, you can expect to:
 

  • Gain experience in a venture-backed startup and have a direct impact on its success.

  • See how the entire business is run, and own some of the most essential metrics at the company.

  • Bring big ideas and hustle, and see the tangible impact of your work in dollars and cents.
     

The best candidates will have:

 

  • 3-5 years of experience as a front-end developer/designer

  • Experience in both web design and web development

  • Strong opinions on the best development platforms and tools 

  • Stellar eye for design while tapping UX research practices 
  • Curiosity and ability to learn new skills quickly

  • Love for running after goals independently vs. being told what to do

  • A “no job is too small” mentality  

  • Empathy for the remote worker

 

Owl Labs is 33% remote and headquarters are based in Somerville, MA. This role can be either an on-site or remote position. Please specify in your application.

An Insider's view of Owl Labs

What's something quirky about your company?

We practice what we preach. Employees work at our Somerville HQ, across the US, and often are a hybrid mix of in-office and remote. We all work hard, and so we believe in working whenever you're at your best.

Rebecca

VP Marketing

What are some things you learned at the company?

This is my first startup, and I expected that the pace would be fast. I've also learned how to remove barriers, navigate processes, and anticipate others' needs to keep things moving quickly and efficiently.

Amy

Head of Operations

What is your vision for the company?

I've witnessed the gaps in technology that make it exceptionally hard for remote participants to be seen, heard and most importantly, understood. I'm thankful to be working with the extraordinary team at Owl Labs to bring high fidelity collaboration to life and making the future of work a tangible reality.
