Who we are

We believe that podcasts are one of the best ways to spread knowledge, explore new topics and have discussions about things that matter. That’s why we’ve set out to develop the best tools for podcast creators to understand and grow the audience of their shows. Because what’s a great podcast without a great audience?

Your responsibilities

  • Take ownership of parts of our backend services and infrastructure (we do process loads of data, so it’s gonna be fun!)
  • Improve reliability and performance of existing services, implement new services and functionality and extend our APIs
  • Help improve our system architecture, CI/CD setup and devops tooling
  • Identify and resolve issues in production workloads
  • Proactively influence the product development process and direction
  • Collaborate closely with product management and other engineers
  • Support us in our effort of internal knowledge sharing with docs, mentoring and more

Requirements

  • 4+ years of experience in developing backend services and APIs on Node.js and running them in production environments
  • Fluency in Typescript and modern JavaScript and the toolchain around it
  • Good knowledge of AWS fundamentals, Terraform and distributed system architecture
  • Experience with designing databases, especially with Postgres or MySQL
  • Some experience with Python, Apache Spark, Snowflake or Elasticsearch would be a major plus
  • A passion for writing clean and testable code as well as knowledge of software and system design patterns
  • High degree of autonomy and willingness to take ownership of parts of the product
  • Fluent in written and spoken English
