Full time Software Engineer

Job Description

What's next in music happens on SoundCloud first. As the world’s largest open audio platform, SoundCloud is powered by a connected community of creators, listeners and curators who share, discover and influence what’s new, now and next in music and audio.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our User Auth team.

The User Auth team at SoundCloud develops and supports the protocols, APIs, services and databases at the heart of our authentication systems. As a member of the team you will work on designing and developing new features and improvements related to security, performance and functionality to protect and empower our users. Your contributions will help all engineers to integrate easily with these systems, and continue to keep our users safe. Our work involves large-scale distributed systems- keeping account credentials secure and globally consistent. We actively improve our tools and processes to support collaboration and productivity. We cultivate an environment where we can all learn and grow.

You have solid backend engineering skills and are motivated to work in areas of protocol design, security, system resilience and data processing. You’re proactive and have experience collaborating closely with other teams. You enjoy crafting simple solutions to complex engineering problems and are able to communicate them to other team members. You’re an independent thinker, but thrive in a tight-knit team. You’re committed to the products you work on.

If this describes you, we’d love to chat!   

Prior experience with microservices, JVM languages, Ruby on Rails, MySQL, OAuth2, Open ID automated testing, and continuous delivery are all highly valued.
