Contributions to the open-source community
Periscope was started by a few friends and the idea of letting people see the world through someone else’s eyes, a visual pulse of what’s happening - right now. Over the last few months, we have expanded the team and are looking for people just as excited about this vision.
Periscope lets you see the world in real time through someone else's eyes. Where would you explore, if you could teleport somewhere and be in somebody else's shoes?
You'll be able to learn more about Periscope later this year. Please reach out to us if you're interested in joining the team!
