About Us

The Job

We're looking to recruit multiple experienced frontend or backend developers to our team. Being excited about music is definitely a bonus, but we have loads of fun and exciting programming projects in the pipeline. Ideas are welcome and many of our improvements come from people in the business suggesting them. Some of the projects we are currently working on are rebuilding our website (front and backend), live streaming from our studios, rolling out a subscription model and developing a mobile app, to name a few.


Our current primary projects use Elixir, Ruby, React (plus TypeScript), PostgreSQL, and Haskell; with a smattering of Rust and Python for IoT and ML projects. Continuous Integration / Delivery is handled with CircleCI and Git. We work in small project-based teams on our various components, and we have dedicated (and good!) project managers who help give us plenty of time and space to focus on programming.
