SoundCloud is the world's leading audio platform, enabling everyone to discover original music & audio content, connect with each other and share what they hear. Our Creators' team is responsible for managing content provided by our creators as well as improving the creator experience.

You have solid backend engineering skills and are motivated to work in an end-to-end team that's focused on improving our services and features for independent Creators. Youre proactive and have experience collaborating closely with other teams. You enjoy crafting simple solutions to complex engineering problems and are able to communicate them to product managers. Youre an independent thinker, but thrive in a tight-knit team. Youre committed to the products you work on.

Prior experience with microservices, JVM languages, automated testing, and continuous delivery are all highly valued. Scala is the main language we use, so you are either already proficient in it or excited to learn. You might be working with data processing pipelines based on Hadoop, Spark, SQL and the Google Cloud Platform. Experience is less important than interest.

Creators and their user generated content is one of the most important aspects that sets SoundCloud apart from our competitors. SoundCloud is the platform for emerging, up-and-coming, and established creators alike. Our team looks after a diverse set of features that individual creators use to find and grow an audience, connect with other creators and monetize their art.

If this sounds like you, we'd love to chat! We need your help as our backlogs are full of exciting ideas!
