We are working with one of the premier music tech companies in London looking for a JavaScript Developer to focus on Node and help to make millions of tracks each month available for streaming and downloading worldwide.

The JavaScript Developer will work with their existing team to support a company-wide move to distributed microservices on Node. Your work will focus on the backend, writing these microservices and the APIs that connect them with a focus on performance and scalability. You will get the chance to learn new technology including GraphQL and you will be supported by their in-house engineers to upskill in Node, architecture, API design and automated testing.

Whilst some knowledge of Node would be great, the team are happy and confident they can quickly help anyone with a passion for learning cross-train over from any backend OO language too (PHP, Java, Ruby, C# etc.).

What are they looking for from you?

Either knowledge of Node or any backend OO language
Some experience working with APIs (Integration, consumption or creation)
Experience writing unit tests for backend code
Passion for new technology and learning
Some interest in Music

JavaScript, and more specifically Node, is arguably the most in demand skills set in software now. This role is offering someone with the right core skills the chance to master the Node stack and the art of using it to create robust and scalable backend systems. Top that off with the fact that you are creating the systems that make some of your favourite music available online and the opportunity here is fantastic.
