Glow | Lead Software Engineer | Seattle, WA | ONSITE | glow.fm

Glow's mission is to help create a world where content realizes its value, by giving podcasters all the tools they need to build media businesses. Today, we offer the easiest and most flexible way for podcasters to create membership programs. Over time, we aim to be for podcasters what Shopify is for e-commerce entrepreneurs. We are 100% aligned with creators and aim to help them succeed doing what they love to do.

We are looking for a Lead Software Engineer to join our team. The role is mostly individual contributor work (technical vision, design, writing code), with some time mentoring 2-3 other engineers on the team. We promise that you'll never be bored, that you'll be trusted to manage your own time, and that you'll be working on something that makes a difference in the lives of content creators and their fans. Also, we offer a competitive salary, full medical/dental benefits, and unlimited podcasts.

Does the following sound like you? You love podcasts. You are excited about helping creators thrive and build a living around their content. You have strong customer empathy and a track record of building customer-facing products. You work iteratively, shipping often and measuring results. You enjoy a small team where bureaucracy is low but great communication and collaboration is essential. You don’t get hung up on the boundaries of front-end, back-end, dev ops – you do whatever it takes to deliver. You think in terms of architecture and love to work across the software lifecycle to deliver great products. You thrive in the ambiguity and activity of a startup environment.

We closed our $2.3M seed round of financing in August with a great group of investors including Greycroft, Jeff Katzenberg's WndrCo, and the rapper Nas.


We also have a second engineering role open:
