React / Front End Developer in Goodtalk.app @ NY+SCL

Closed job - No longer receiving applicants

Goodtalk is a cross between TV and texting. Use Goodtalk to broadcast text message conversations to an audience – similar to a conversation on TV or on stage, but using text messages instead. The audience can be a fly on the wall, react to individual messages and submit comments & questions for screening— but they can’t interrupt the conversation. You can use Goodtalk with your native text app (iMessage/ Android Messenger) or download our native iOS or Android apps.
