Full Time
Keakie’s software developers create technologies that enable millions of users to discover and experience the music and lifestyles that lie at the heart of sub cultures all around the world. Our products need to handle data at massive scale, and extend beyond raw streaming. We’re looking for developers who can bring dynamic impact from all areas, with a focus both on front end technologies and design.

As a software developer, you will work on specific projects critical to Keakie’s expansion, and you’ll have opportunities to jump between projects as both you and our fast paced business continue to grow and develop. We need developers to be flexible, enthusiastic, and display the leadership qualities to tackle new problems across the front end as we continue to push the boundaries of technical innovation. From Keakie Analytics, to EDNA, Keakie’s developers are changing the world, one technological breakthrough at a time.

We’re looking for front end developers who are highly skilled in Javascript, familiar with object orientated programming, and able to use their initiative to solve problems and build new applications and features. Ideal candidates are comfortable with the software development life cycle including planning, systems analysis, systems design, development, integration and testing, implementation and operations and maintenance.

Keakie’s developers work within a tightly knit team of forward thinking, energetic and result oriented people. You will be required to take ownership of product development, implementation and maintenance. To accomplish this, you will be expected to collaborate across small, agile teams with varied strengths. You will work with our Design team and iOS team, providing feedback on wireframes and user flows, and implementing designs with test-covered code. 

The position is on site in Shoreditch, London.
