Lead Front-End Engineer


This is reshaping the podcasting ecosystem. With their app, listeners can get podcast recommendations based on their personal listening habits, helping them to discover interesting, novel shows. In the future, this app will support detailed analytics for podcast authors, as well as targeted programmatic advertising. Authors of low- to mid-scale shows will be better equipped to grow their audiences, as advertisers target previously unreachable listeners.

Job Description

  • Thoughtful feature design, focusing on intuitive UIs, responsiveness, and overall cohesion with the rest of the product
  • Prioritize upcoming features & updates by observing user feedback and identifying areas for improvement
  • Wearing many hats - every engineer at is equal parts developer, product manager, and QA specialist
  • Participating in our weekly team pitch practice, discussions regarding marketing & business development, and organizing & attending local podcasting events


  • Typescript
  • React/Redux
  • Node/Python/Scala
  • AWS

What they're looking for:

  • Proficient in modern JavaScript (ES6 onwards, preferably TypeScript)
  • Hands-on experience developing and maintaining production-scale web applications written in React
