Full time Software Engineer Web Development

Job Description

SoundCloud is the world's leading audio platform, allowing everyone to share and discover unique content anywhere, anytime, on the web and on mobile.

Internal Tools is a small team based in Berlin who work on enabling, automating, and improving the workflows of SoundCloud’s Community Operations team. Our software and ingenuity help the Community Operations team provide customer support to millions of users via email, our help center, our community forum, and social media channels. To continue enabling the Community Operations team, and to help them scale their efforts, we are looking for a compassionate person to build and maintain internal support tools.

You are an experienced web programmer who is passionate about helping others in the workplace. You enjoy analyzing workflows, are able to see how to improve them, and can build or extend tools to implement the improvements. You can assess the impact of different improvements against each other to determine the priority of implementing them.

You will identify areas where we’re underutilizing existing resources and missing key capabilities. From our custom-built user administration system, to integrating with our third-party self-service help site (Zendesk) and community forum, to designing and building ways to measure and improve productivity, you’ll be responsible for the technology that keeps our Community Operations team working efficiently.

You will have an opportunity to work on various projects that are typically built in Ruby and JavaScript, though you will be free to choose the languages and off-the-shelf resources you see fit.

You’ll have a least 3 years of software development experience, including having worked on an active production web application. You are comfortable writing modern JavaScript, and have solid knowledge of SQL and testing principles. You should be able to design and extract data from Web APIs so it can be consumed by reporting tools such as Tableau and/or Google Data Studio.You care about good design and user experience and have excellent communication skills. Prior experience building APIs for web applications, familiarity with metrics-driven and application monitoring are a plus. If this sounds like you, we’d love to talk to you.
