Current Opportunities & Initiatives
What about skills?
You should be comfortable and proficient writing code in Objective-C. We use Git to collaborate and peer code review as our primary mechanism for keeping code bases healthy. Engineers are expected to provide meaningful code review feedback to others regularly. Though definitely not a requirement, willingness to jump into the back-end is definitely a plus.
Do you think big?
We want strong engineers who think systematically and innovate eagerly on the path to building amazing products. Many of the features we plan to launch by the end of this year were conceived by engineers who were able to lead the efforts to launch them.
A strong desire to know or learn something.
Curiosity is important throughout the life of an engineer. It drives us to learn new programming languages, experiment with new systems, and to figure out novel ways to solve problems. It’s what causes us to question assumptions and seek to understand the architectural choices made by others. A lot of the traits commonly ascribed to a good engineer stem from a rich sense of curiosity.
Knowledge or perception of a situation.
When you’re self-aware and aware of your surroundings, you ask more questions and make more connections. You’ll understand the reasons you make technical decisions and be able to articulate them when asked. Awareness helps you identify why some code is particularly awkward to use, or when a pattern is emerging that can be standardized.
But, awareness isn’t enough on its own, it needs to be coupled with action.
Admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering.
The best software engineers have a strong gut feeling about the right way something should be done, but they’re also flexible, open to other opinions, and know when to seek out additional information.
Resoluteness manifests as the ability to make good technical decisions amid uncertainty, to doggedly investigate complex bugs, and to effectively push a project to completeness.
The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
It’s unlikely any engineer works entirely in isolation. Understanding people’s feelings and perspectives is an important part of working in a team.
But empathy can go beyond this: it can help you write better code. If you can understand how other people will use your code, and what it will be like for them to read it the first time, you’ll design better interfaces and write simpler, more logically structured code.
Right now, this role will manage community outreach and development in coordination with other members of the Design team, focusing on a few high-priority artists, collectors, DJs, and events.
You thrive when you’re working with a small team in a fast-paced environment. You are confident but willing to learn. We want to learn with you, and learn from you.
You have expert knowledge of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram ad platforms, but importantly have superb written skills and a professional candor.
Though you won't be designing per say, we are looking for someone with knowledge of or a desire to learn photo editing software such as Lightroom, Photoshop, or Affinity Photo and Design suites.
The ideal candidate also possess a strong eye for layout, typography, color and visual design, with an ability to create banners with compelling copy.
You must have knowledge of the community thought leaders in the vinyl record space-folk who are notable for maintaining the format, especially as a vendor to record collectors.
This is an internship level role.
