SoundCloud – Backend Engineer, Creators (DE)

What’s next in music happens on SoundCloud first. As the world’s largest open audio platform, SoundCloud is powered by a connected community of creators, listeners and curators who share, discover and influence what’s new, now and next in music and audio.

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. You’re 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. You’re an independent thinker, but thrive in a tight-knit team. You’re 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. Experience in technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, and data processing pipelines is a plus.

Creators and their user generated content is one of the most important aspects that sets SoundCloud apart from our competitors. Our team looks after a diverse set of features that mainly cater to their needs. Your impact will come from delivering with a strong sense of ownership of our products.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat!
