Our team at SC is looking for an experienced search engineer to help us help our users discover SoundCloud's huge and unique catalog of music and audio.
Working on one of the leading music platforms on the web, this is a great opportunity to apply your skills to make a measurable difference to millions of people around the globe.
Our services tend to be written in Go and Scala; data munging happens with Elasticsearch and Spark. Familiarity with these is a plus, though frankly eagerness to learn is more important.
If you are experienced in information retrieval or a related field (such as recommendations, information extraction, question answering etc.) and passionate about developing and evaluating data-driven products, get in touch!
On a personal note, I've learned a lot and had a great time here. If search isn't your thing, take a gander at https://soundcloud.com/jobs, there's a bunch of interesting open positions.
