Combine your love of technology, music, and web design while pushing our web properties to new heights!

This role can be done from home

Building the world’s leading sound experience starts with the experience we provide for our people.

  • Write clear, reliable, maintainable code with an understanding of web standards and best practices.
  • Exercising your extremely strong technical aptitude while staying updated on the current state of web technology.
  • Communicating your solutions to both technical and non-technical stakeholders in a clear and concise manner.
  • Develop and mentor junior engineers, paying your knowledge forward.

What You’ll Need:

  • Experience with Amazon Web Services and Akamai

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience implementing headless solutions (especially with eCommerce)
  • Experience with data query languages such as GraphQL
