Hello ð Weâre looking for a part-time full-stack software engineer to join us at Rephonic â a B2B SaaS startup in the podcasting space with customers that include well-known companies like Google, HubSpot, TIME magazine, Penguin Random House and the BBC.
The role is part-time for 3 days per week but it could grow into a full-time role later (only if youâre open to that, no pressure).
This role is flexible and asynchronous (generally we donât have meetings, standups or calls) so itâs perfect for a digital nomad, a new parent, or someone pursuing other interests or a side project. You can spread the hours throughout the week however you like.
Weâre headquartered in the UK but the company is fully remote and the team is spread all over the world.
Three years in, our mission is to build the best outreach and research database for podcasts. The goal is to model the entire podcast industry and that means collecting and organising a lot of disparate data and visualising it in a useful, friendly format.
You may also be working on our other product Reletter (itâs built on the same stack) and perhaps other apps in the future.
You should have strong skills in at least one of either React or Python and be open to learning about any pieces that youâre missing from the list below.
React / Next.js
Ideally You Are
ð A motivated self-starter whoâs comfortable working without too much day-to-day supervision
ð§ Someone who (at least occasionally!) listens to podcasts
ð¤ A bit of data geek (we collect and transform a lot of it)
ð¬ Comfortable working in a remote, asynchronous team environment with mostly chat-based communication
Youâll take responsibility for substantial parts of our development and ship new features from scratch.
Some examples of features you might build:
Figure out how to integrate podcasts uploaded to YouTube with our existing database
Build a “Google Trends for podcasts” tool using our data
A/B test changes to the onboarding flow in order to increase conversions
Availability for at least 3 days per week (i.e. 3 x 8 hours, so 24 hours in total) but you can split and spread the hours throughout the week, however you like
Strong written English skills
This is a contract role so youâll need to be registered as a freelancer (or similar) and be able to issue invoices to the company
You use either Linux or macOS for your work
US $72,000 per year (equivalent to ~$120k full-time)
