As a Software Engineer at Podcasts, you will provide technical leadership in defining our software architecture and implementation to this unique problem. You, along with the entire team will have meaningful input and impact on product direction, and customer innovations to drive engagement. By joining as a senior founding team member, you will play a critical role in shaping the technical architecture and foundation of the new offering.
