  • Span programming languages as needed, depending on the data processing framework in use
  • Collaborate with software engineers, ML experts and others, taking learning and leadership opportunities that will arise every single day
  • Work in cross functional agile teams to regularly experiment, iterate, and deliver on new product objectives

Who you are

  • You are experienced with batch and real-time data processing frameworks like Crunch, Scalding, Storm, Kafka, or Spark
  • You are knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques
  • You have an agile mindset and care about development processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation
  • You preferably have worked on open source or other data related projects
We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and our creators. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
