Scroll to content

We build infrastructure and products for packaging and distributing music to millions of listeners driving billions of streams. 

As music is at the center of Epidemic Sound the Music Distribution team is in the center of driving both the success of our storytellers using our music and artists that want to get their music heard.

In every product team across Epidemic Sound, our software engineers take a holistic perspective of the product. They are integral in some of the most significant decisions for the company. This means they need to have a strong business and product sense.

A software engineer at Epidemic builds products effectively, helps shape the product through active contribution in product conversations, and provides a strong technical voice in the product development process to achieve sound product/technical tradeoffs.

We are looking for a senior software engineer with a foundational understanding and experience of complex systems and backend technologies to join the team. 

Are you interested in working across the stack to bring our music to the ears of our listeners wherever they are or might in the future? Apply now!
