Senior Full Stack Generalist (Remote - US)

Salary Competitive

WELCOME TO UTOPIA

Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate. While the tech world has moved into the future, the music industry continues to be shaped by inefficient systems of the past. At Utopia we believe there is a better way. Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin. Unlocking the industry’s full potential by unifying it all in one truly holistic space. Some might call that a Utopia.

Funnily enough, so do we. Welcome to Utopia. Where music lives.

WHAT UTOPIANS DO

  • Knowing ES6, TypeScript and React is a plus.
  • Bonus points for having experience with HAML and SCSS.

  • You love to learn and you love to share your knowledge and mentor others.
  • Good communications skills, fluency in English.
  • Good self organization skills and strong personal integrity.

    WHAT WE OFFER

    • Great atmosphere - we live, love & breathe music & tech!

    • We celebrate being an international and multicultural company.
    • Competitive benefits; packages depend on location. You’ll be given more details on this during the interview process.

    [Always include Relocation statement -This is something you will agree on with hiring managers and depending on that we will update each job separately with relevant relocation statement. E.g Currently, we are only recruiting within the USA for this role.]

    THE HIRING PROCESS

    • You send us your CV and a cover letter in English.
    • We invite you for an introductory phone/video call to get to know you better and share more about us.
    • You get a programming exercise and unlimited time to send us your solution.
    • Our lead developers evaluate it and we provide you with the feedback.
