Full time Software Engineer Web Development

Job Description

We are looking for someone with proven experience delivering a sizeable React (or better, React Native) application to production. Good knowledge of JS and React is essential, experience with mobile platforms is a considerable plus. We have millions of users across our mobile offerings, so experience in improving and maintaining performance is also a bonus.

We use Relay to manage the data from our GraphQL API, so experience with that (or something similar like Apollo) is fantastic. We also test heavily and enforce type-safety on the frontend, so let us know if you have experience with Jest and Flow.

We have a large user base, but a small development team. This means you'll have the opportunity to learn new skills in new areas, make a real impact and that the work is generally diverse and interesting.

ABOUT MIXCLOUD:

At Mixcloud, our purpose is to amplify culture and community. We operate a fair and legal audio streaming service that supports creators to share their passions. We recently launched Mixcloud LIVE, which is solving real challenges for creators who want to stream legally and monetise online.

We are home to a unique catalogue of 50 million DJ mixes, radio shows and podcasts handcrafted by the world’s finest DJs, online radio stations and cultural tastemakers. Our mission is to get more fans directly supporting creators and build a more sustainable future for audio culture. We want to see a world where everyone can create sustainably and connect deeply. Beyond the algorithm, human to human.

The Team/ Culture: We have a remote-first work culture, although we still have a beautiful office available for anyone to use. We're an agile, driven and entrepreneurial group of creatives and technologists committed to helping each other grow. We care deeply about providing engineers with the space to evolve and encourage self-starters. If you are interested in making an impact, driving audio culture forward, and helping creators around the world earn a living from their craft, come join us!

Qualifications:

  • Strong JavaScript background
  • Experience of a large production React application
  • Bonus points for experience of React Native or mobile application development
  • UK Residency

We’re a culturally active bunch, with many of us pursuing our passions as DJs, producers, radio hosts, promoters or creatives. We cater weekly lunches and host social team mixers. We offer a great benefits package that includes generous holiday, flexible working, a healthcare plan and a kitchen packed with healthy snacks.  

We offer a culture of personal development and growth. We’re serious about encouraging our employees to develop their careers through goal setting, training and mentorship.
