More about Hopin:
Hopin solves the problem with webinars and virtual events. Webinars are one-sided and passive; participants don’t interact with each—a critical component to learning. Unlike Zoom and other video conferencing tools, Hopin focuses on engagement and interaction between users (people-centric), not on screen-watching (powerpoint-centric).
With Hopin, organizers can build live video events with a Stage (for presentations to hundreds of thousands of people), Sessions (for group breakout discussions of up to ten people), and Networking (for one-on-one meetings).
The offer:
A competitive starting salary for this role with the opportunity for bonuses as we scale.

We are currently a remote team and are open to remote applications from all over the world. However, if you’re based in London you can work with the CEO and other team members at the Seedcamp office in the Google for Startups Campus in Shoreditch.
