We're looking for a talented software developer to work on the server-side of our music delivery service: music ingestion and delivery, analytics collection and reporting, and web services used by our clients and curation team. Your goal will be to help us power sound everywhere.

You will need to form a full understanding of our data model, how we map our music providers’ schemas to it, and how we expose it to our clients. You will be working with our primary data stores: MySQL, ElasticSearch and Google BigTable. You will work on all our backend services, written primarily in Node.js, along with PHP and Bash scripts.

You will work hand-in-hand with our current engineering team, music curators, customer support, and product team to define and develop whatever is needed to advance our business. You will work with and develop our tools and services that:

  • Ingest files and metadata from our music providers

  • Analyze and extract metadata from our music collection

  • Deliver music to applications using our client SDKs

  • Track music playback and generate reports for our music providers and licensors

  • Generate analytics and reporting from playback and client data

  • Power our customer and client portals

You are, at heart, a problem solver, and eager to collaborate with others to deploy working solutions to advance our business. You are eager to understand how the tasks you are working on fit into the bigger picture and you proactively engage with others to clarify and refine what you are working on.

We manage our infrastructure with Chef and Terraform, and use Jenkins and Git for deployment. We strive for reliability and simplicity, and look to outside SaaS providers when the price is right. You will take part in managing and supporting our staging and production environments.
