Job Description

TuneIn is continuing to hire for all open roles with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. Everyone new to the team, along with our current employees, will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our offices.
Our mission is to deliver the world’s best listening experiences.  Every day we make good on that promise for millions of listeners through our flagship mobile and web applications along with more than 200 connected devices and services.
About TuneIn Engineering
We value being a top-notch engineering organization and have the same high standards as our code and people. We make time for quality, we are agile and pragmatic, we keep it simple, we are data-driven, and we love getting better. Check out our principles here. We regularly invest time in our developers and support their growth, and we show this in a number of ways—clear job responsibilities and expectations for career paths, freedom to move teams, and our quarterly Discovery Days, during which developers are free to spend time on innovative features, products, or approaches to problems ("hackathon" like); address nagging issues or problems that take time away from adding value to TuneIn or simply learn a new technology. 
About the Position
Our business invested in a complete rewrite of our web application to a modern stack (React.js, Redux, Node.js) and we’re looking for a talented web engineer to build new features as we continue to scale.  Our ideal candidate also has experience in building APIs.  This is a highly visible, high-impact role in which you’ll have a lot of say on what happens on product features from early brainstorming to how we implement features. As a key member of the web engineering team, you will lead the architectural direction of all TuneIn web products.
