Freelance Full-Stack Developer (Node.js/React/AWS) (m/f/d)
Pixtunes is a Berlin-based deep-tech startup with the goal of introducing a completely new entertainment technology to the world of consumer electronics that will change the way people perceive their own reality in everyday life. We are design-oriented visionaries who hope to create experiences that go far beyond what people have ever encountered before. Our vision for a new kind of music has led us to invent a revolution that we can proudly call our own — a technology that transforms existing music formats and entertainment systems to a whole new level. From the individual consumer to global markets, our goal is to provide everyone with their own unique soundtrack for their lives. An intense experience like in the cinema, only it is drawn from your own reality, accompanied by ground-breaking music and sound.
As a full-stack developer you produce high-quality code and are passionate about scalable and performant frontend and backend architectures. You are experienced at working in an agile environment and enjoy solving technical challenges, such low-latency audio transmission, performance and scalability. You’ll be part of a small team that is dedicated to build beautiful, well-performing applications that integrate our core product and deliver a unique, immersive user experience. Therefore, it is important that you bring an engineering mindset and that you are a self-starter. Your general software design and implementation skills and fluency in TypeScript are very important to us, as you’ll be working both on well-structured code bases that are meant to stay, but also build new prototypes from scratch.
In return you will have the opportunity to shape your work environment and responsibilities to a great extent and collaborate with inspiring and fun people that love what they’re doing. We are an international team of empathetic creatives and engineers from different backgrounds that share a passion for immersive auditive experiences. You will be working closely with designers, audio experts and management to enable the future platform of adaptive music.
