Employment Type

Full time

We are launching a new product team in the Core Music Experience product area. The team will be responsible end to end for the core music experience together with its sister team Music Discovery, on all platforms (web and mobile). 

The initial focus is however on leading our efforts to create the Epidemic Sound App. We are now looking for an experienced iOS engineer to join the team as a founding member.

In every product team across Epidemic Sound, our software engineers take a holistic perspective of the product. They are integral in some of the most significant decisions for the company. This means they need to have a strong business and product sense.

A software engineer at Epidemic builds products effectively, helps shape the product through active contribution in product conversations, and provides a strong technical voice in the product development process to achieve sound product/technical tradeoffs.

Job description

You would join a small, cross-functional team owning a key problem space in the Core Music Experience product area. The team will initially be dedicated to all aspects of building and launching the new Epidemic mobile apps on iOS and Android. 

Once proven and validated, mobile native will be an additional platform at Epidemic Sound. Part of the team’s mandate is to find a model where other teams can contribute to the native apps, supported by infrastructure, tooling and processes and shepherded by this new team. 

As a software engineer in the team, you will need to understand and contribute to all parts involved in delivering the product. However, with your iOS expertise you would particularly focus on the app development aspects. You would also be expected to mentor team members and contribute to cross-team initiatives in this area.

You can expect to:

  • Join a small, but experienced team that together works autonomously in finding the right solutions and system designs. 
  • Architect and build product features from the database all the way to the UI. 
  • Contribute to all stages of the product life-cycle: design, implementation, testing, releasing, and maintenance
  • Contribute to, and sometimes lead, cross-team initiatives to evolve shared components, platform architecture and improving engineering standards, tooling and processes.
  • Collaborate constantly: We’re big believers in teamwork and the value of practices like careful code reviews, pair (or mob) programming, etc.
  • Learn a ton of new things: Be it through hack-days, courses, conferences, or tech-talks, we emphasize learning and we also expect you to share your knowledge with your colleagues.
  • Have fun and take a lot of pride in what you and all of Epidemic Sound is doing.

This is a full-time position based at our HQ in Stockholm.

Who are you?

In order for you to thrive in this role, we believe that you:

  • Love teamwork
  • Are passionate about building great products that people love, and you always make technology choices with this end-goal in mind
  • Are principled but also pragmatic: You value best-practices but realize that all rules have exceptions.
  • Have a full-stack mindset; you’re curious about understanding all parts of the stack that make up the product, and you’re open to contributing to areas outside of your expertise when it makes sense
  • Have at least 3 years experience of developing apps for iOS and have used Swift for at least some of this time
  • Have previous experience from building apps for App Store
  • Speak English with professional working proficiency (Swedish is not a requirement)

It would also be music to our ears if you have:

  • Worked with single codebase UI toolkits like React Native or Flutter
  • Also developed Android applications
  • Experience of music streaming apps and audio playback on iOS
  • Experience of one or more of the following: Python, Django, React & Redux, Elastic Search, Docker, Kubernetes, GCP ecosystem, Kotlin

Are you interested in working across the stack to bring our music to the ears of our listeners wherever they are or might in the future? Apply now!
