Apple Music is all the ways you love music, all in one place. Shazam brings a unique brand of magic to millions every day. Millions of users. Billions of Shazams. Countless moments of discovery. It's our people - their imagination, skills and ideas - that shape our future, and help us make the impossible come to life.
In this position you will be part of a team that designs, builds, and runs highly scalable cloud-based services and systems that are at the heart of the Shazam backend and serve thousands of requests every second.

The role is based in San Diego with our infrastructure engineering team that closely collaborates with engineers across our global organization, particularly with teams in the Bay Area and London

Key Qualifications

  • Technologies of interest: Go, Javascript, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Docker
  • Eagerness to adopt new technologies or tools when necessary
  • Understanding and practice of the different layers of testing
  • Interested full stack development. We build, deploy, and monitor our own software.
  • Not constrained by a specific language/tool and are ready to embrace and learn new technologies
  • Self motivated, able to work independently, and able to build collaborative relationships with others
  • Like to work in an agile environment
  • Constantly looking to improve the code base by refactoring and automating

Description

While the team works on a multitude of services, our primary focus is the music ingestion pipeline (how music audio makes it into Shazam) and our audio recognition service (the infrastructure that recognizes music when you press the blue Shazam button).
The systems and services we look after are primarily written in Go and run primarily on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and rely heavily on Kubernetees technologies for deployment and operations. We are a team of full stack engineers. We build, deploy and operate our services end to end, hence we are passionate about testing, automation and monitoring. We also invest heavily in building WebUI based tools (Control Panels) to manage our systems.

As part of the team you will support the constant evolution of our existing systems and processes. You will also explore new technologies and contribute to the next generation of systems by finding new and better solutions to both existing problems, and problems we have yet to discover

Education & Experience

BS in Computer Science or related discipline or equivalent experience.
