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.

SoundCloud’s Content Engineering Team currently has two main responsibilities. It is responsible for the systems that ingest commercial supply chain content and make it available on SoundCloud (Content Ingestion) and for the systems that deal with rights management for our content (Content Rights). This means making our content available as is intended by the rightsholders, at the right moment in time, only in the expected territories etc. The Content Eng Team will consist of two sub-teams each covering one of these responsibilities and we are looking for an Engineering Manager for one of the teams.

As the Engineering Manager of one of those teams, you will be responsible for hiring, managing and developing a group of talented software engineers working with cutting-edge technologies such as microservices, Scala, data processing pipelines such as Hadoop, Spark, SQL, and the Google Cloud Platform.  

You will help the team to understand business objectives, establish an agile workflow, and uphold our best in class technical direction. You will work closely with product to deliver an amazing product. You will communicate proactively with other teams across the company to collaborate on cross-cutting topics. You embrace hard decisions, applying pragmatism when necessary.

We are passionate about making SoundCloud a platform which is indispensable to creators. If you would like to share this passion with us, we’d love to hear from you!
