CRATES

Who we are

Hi we are a startup put together by a group of friends to build what we need:  an app to delight us & solve our needs as music heads.

At this first phase -currently on private beta-  Crates app  is a music collection management tool ..“on steroids”, and a player for desktop and mobile devices.

What makes it different is that it offers a fresh user experience, enabling users to optimise the grooming of their collection while having their data synced accessible on all their devices privately, peer-to-peer.

We say "this phase" because we have a very audacious vision of how the project will unfold: building on the foundation we built, we plan to realise all our ideas on offering exciting new approaches around music discovery, recommendation, social interaction or just plain cool features. 

All that while respecting creators and embedding strong ethics on the product from the grounds-up. Here's what we believe it:

  • Privacy by default
  • User should own their data
  • Optimise for Delightful User Experience  - not for profit
  • Honesty & Fairness - No backdoor exploitation.  No.Ads.Ever.

Who we are looking for

- You are a passionate music lover - you live and breathe music. 
You will be Top user and Maker at the same time.

- You are ambitious and you want to move fast 

- You are good technically but most importantly you know how to get the right things done. 

- You are opinionated but open, positive & motivated !

(If it sounds like you - ping us to connect  regardless!)

What we offer

  • the best product to work for (for us at least!).
    the one where the one moment you think ”oh we should have that" or "this is not optimal" and you go ahead and fix it overnight yourself
  • ability to make a real change in how the world interacts with their music 
  • Experiment with cool new technologies that solve our product problems. Out stack currently is Java, Electron, Angular. Native Ios, the decentralization architecture expands to blockchain 
  • best audience to build for: your fellow music heads,  djs, radio producers, record stores!
  • work remotely from anywhere - we are results oriented

  • generous Equity %  - the more you contribute the more you OWN part of the company (and we are early stage!)
