Job Description:

About Us

At oVice, we are building a virtual real estate platform, helping to bridge the gap between the real and digital world. We redefine online communication to be as immersive and natural as possible. Our virtual spaces are designed to match real physical places to provide a more natural way of online communication, helping people connect, build, and deepen relationships.

oVice has been expanding and growing month over month since our launch in August 2020. Although based in Japan, our team is global and we work fully remote. We're looking for talented people who are keen on using new technology to elevate how people interact online.

About the role

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to join our team. You will lead a team of passionate, talented engineers that are building the next standard for remote work and flexible life style. In this role, you will introduce tools and processes to make our engineer's lives better. You will play an active part in shaping product strategy based on what's technically possible. You will make sure our company hits our ambitious goals from an engineering standpoint.

You bring a passion for meeting business needs with building technically innovative solutions and excel at shifting between the two-understanding how big-picture goals inform technical details, and vice-versa. You thrive in a fast-paced iterative engineering environment and have experience in delivering scalable distributed systems. Most importantly, you will have a track record of having past teams respect you as both a technical leader and manager.

What you'll do

oVice is a growing company and engineering is an ever-evolving organization with teams being formed and redefined often. Here are some of the things that are on-going and future road maps.

Application rewrite (PHP Elixir)

The initial version of oVice is based on PHP/Vue, but we're rebuilding the application in Elixir/React.

While we're still small, we've experienced extremely high growth, and we want to rebuild the system to make sure we are in good hands to scale for even more in the near future.

Platform APIs and Marketplace

We have a strong demand on customization of our platform and we will be bringing that power to users by opening up our APIs. Think of APIs like Stripe, Shopify and Slack where you can use their APIs to expand the tool that you're using. We want to bring that into oVice as well so customers can build all kinds of integration with services they use in their day to day work.


Scaling our communication systems internationally is a big goal this year. We want to be able to improve on latency, and also provide better debugging and support for users experiencing network issues.

There are definitely a lot more exciting things going on, and would we will love to have you provide input on how we can improve our platform as well!
