United States

Applicants must reside in: United States

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

Podsights is a reporting and attribution platform for podcast advertising. We likely work with your favorite podcast publisher and handle over 100M web events with 75M downloads 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 tools for brands to optimize results, we can encourage more investment in podcast advertising, and by proxy to podcasters.

Your role will be as a generalist since there are a lot of projects and directions Podsights can pursue. On a given day, you would be handling our data ingestion pipeline, speech-to-text on audio content, or user-facing changes to the dash. The benefit of joining a small team is you will have a tremendous impact on the direction of the company 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 to work on around its decentralized, RSS-based nature, and the various ways people can listen. This is a great 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.

Experience

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. 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'll have 3+ years of experience as a software 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.
