We are looking for backend engineers to join our growing technology organisation!
As backend engineers at SoundCloud, we build the infrastructure for products that music listeners and creators love. Our work often involves large-scale distributed systems, parallel computing, and data science.
We actively improve our tools and processes to support collaboration and efficiency. We cultivate an environment where we can all learn and grow.
You have proven backend engineering skills and are motivated to work in these areas. You’re proactive and have experience collaborating closely with other teams.
You enjoy crafting simple solutions to sophisticated engineering problems and are able to communicate them to product managers.
You’re an entrepreneurial thinker, but thrive in a tight-knit team. You’re committed to the products you work on.
If this describes you, we’d love to chat!
Prior experience with microservices, JVM languages, automated testing, and continuous delivery are all highly valued. Scala is the main language we use, so you are either already proficient in it or excited to learn.
Experience in technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, and data processing pipelines is a plus.
We're currently hiring for multiple teams with different missions, technologies and challenges; and we will discuss potential teams with you to figure out the best fit together.Current openings :

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at SoundCloud
SoundCloud is for everyone. Diversity and open expression are fundamental to our organization. With this foundation, we aim to build a social platform and global community for everyone to create, discover, and share sounds.
We acknowledge the challenges in our industry and strive to develop an inclusive culture where individual contributions are valued.
We are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, migration background, national origin, age, disability status, or care-giver status.
At SoundCloud you can find your community or elevate your allyship by joining a Diversity Resource Group (groups focused on people of color, LGBTQIA+ folks, and women).
You may also participate in inclusive workshops, contribute to our Cultural Moments series, vote on organizations for the SoundCloud Community fund’s support, and more!
