Podsights is a small, distributed organization seeking an engineer to join the team of ten. A little about us, a little about what we believe and what we are looking for.

Podsights is an attribution platform for podcast advertising. We likely work with your favorite publisher and handle over 3 billion events with 500M impressions a month.

Our mission is to grow the podcast industry. Far too many brands try a podcast advertising campaign and churn. Or worse: they don't enter the market at all. By providing a platform for brands to optimize results, we encourage investment in podcast advertising, and by proxy to publishers.

Your role will be a generalist, but with a specific focus on the software stack's middle layer. On a given day, you would be handling our feed ingestion pipeline, speech-to-text on audio content, or building our API. The benefit of joining a small team is you will have a tremendous impact on the company's direction and, to some extent, the industry.

The podcasting industry has seen a lot of growth in the past few years, and we believe it has more room to grow. Beyond growth, podcasting presents some interesting problems: its decentralized, RSS-based nature, and the various ways people can listen. Joining Podsights is an excellent opportunity to be hands-on with an evolving medium.

We believe that where you went to school has little bearing on your performance as a software engineer. Where you live isn't a proxy for talent. Your current employer provides low signal about your future potential.

At Podsights, we look for ambition and curiosity. We love engineers that aren't solely interested in the craft of developing software. Want to start a company of your own one day? Yes, we want to talk. Are you interested in the business side of software? Tell us more.

We want curious engineers. You take things apart and see how they work.

Ideally, you will have 2+ years of experience as a software or data engineer. Our current stack includes Python, Google Cloud (Dataflow, Cloud Functions, Spanner, etc.), React, Apollo, Go, Node, and potentially whatever you bring to the table.

Our team consists of members of Embedly (acquired by Medium), Horizon Media, Claritas, NPM, and How Stuff Works. You can learn more about us here: podsights.com/team

If the above interests you, drop us a note. We're less worried about a resume (LinkedIn is fine), but more importantly, tell us about your ideal next role.
