Come help us build one of the most exciting new products for the
media and entertainment industry! Qwire is revolutionizing how
studios, editors, composers, artists, publishers, labels and
performance rights organizations collaborate. Managing the entire
audio lifecycle of movies, television shows, and live sports
broadcasts is no small task. Making sure that accurate licensing
information gets to the right destination so people can get paid is
even a bigger one. Studios like Warner Bros. are replacing their
million-dollar home-grown solutions and spreadsheets with our Saas
As a Senior Software Engineer at Qwire, you will be a part of a
application. Our technical stack includes Node.js powering our REST
APIs and services, along with Postgresql, Redis, and ElasticSearch
deployed on AWS. On the front end, we use React, Redux, and Thunks.
At Qwire, we write our own tests as developers. We use Jest as our
testing framework, and maintain unit, API integration, and
end-to-end tests using Cypress.io.
You should have depth and experience across some meaningful subset
of our stack. We like generalists, especially ones with 'T' shaped
experience - depth in one area and broad interest in developing
other areas. While we'll play to your strengths, you'll have the
opportunity to learn and contribute across the entire code base. At
Qwire, we value a friendly, collaborative, data driven culture that
places a premium on learning: slope over intercept.

together, preferably code you've written. We're happy to discuss a
side project on GitHub, open-source contributions, and/or other
code you've written, which we've found is the best way assess
potential team members. Please include a link to your personal
website, repo, or other online code you've written. We understand
that code written on your own time may not be entirely
representative of your capabilities. If you don't have any code you
can share, we can also arrange for a peer programming session or a
take home project.
Every candidate that submits an application will get a response.
We'll reach out to selected candidates to schedule an initial call
after reviewing each submission. Our interviewing process is fast
and straightforward: no brainteasers, no coding on a whiteboard,
and your first conversation will be with another engineer, not a
