At Mixlr we currently have opportunities to join our team as a backend developer.

About Mixlr

Mixlr is an audio broadcasting company, providing rock-solid and professional live audio services to radio stations, bands, artists - and tens of thousands of other content creators, each and every month.

From designing and building powerful broadcast apps, to seamlessly distributing live sounds to millions of listeners, our team delivers indispensable solutions that are trusted and relied upon worldwide.

About the role

As a backend developer, you will design, build and optimise systems, identify and fix scalability and security issues, and work to enhance Mixlr’s overall infrastructure.

Your focus will be on our Ruby on Rails web applications, and also our other backend services providing live streaming, real-time messaging, background processing, autoscaling, monitoring and lots more. These services are mostly written in Ruby and NodeJS, but you will be expected to learn about and dive into other programming environments when needed too.

You will own your code from design to deployment phase and beyond. To support this, we implement automatic testing for everything we can, and place a high importance on building ourselves the best internal monitoring tools possible.

We offer a friendly and positive team environment. With regular Friday beers featuring technical discussion and presentations, and regular pair-programming opportunities, you’ll not just contribute but also learn a lot.
