We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to work on what our business is all about - Sound.
The team is part of the Sound Domain, with a focus on building tools empowering our artists, supporting our internal catalog management system, DSP integration and calculating royalties, and ensuring we provide our company with legally and musically outstanding content. We work in a communicative and collaborative space where knowledge sharing is key. We have many things that we take care of, with a wide range of opportunities in a diverse and fun team that promotes well-being.
We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer who is open to working with both frontend and backend when needed to join our skilled team.

Collaborate with other product teams, machine learning, analytics, data, SRE, and the music department to develop new and amazing features that our artists love
Collaborate and communicate closely with your team and other stakeholders
Bring a proactive approach to identifying pain points, risks, and opportunities with an understanding of how our team relates to the rest of the organization
Embrace agile development processes, including pair and mob programming, share knowledge inside and outside the team, and participate in hack weeks and demos
What you'll bring:
Knowledge of React, MySQL and / or PostgreSQL and BigQuery are a plus
A strong willingness to learn
Experience building scalable, reliable and easy-to-maintain software in an iterative fashion
Experience contributing to a team’s continuous work towards a common technical vision
Great communication skills and drive to collaborate closely with colleagues
A flexible mindset as a curious learner and big-picture tech thinker
Your interests, mindset, and attitude are probably the most important aspects of the role. Tech can be learned, but the mindset and the attitude you bring will make us better together, and that’s more valuable to us!
