Senior Front-End Developer

JOB TITLE: SENIOR FRONT-END DEVELOPER

LOCATION: MUMBAI, INDIA

OUR STORY:

Saavn is the world’s largest South Asian focused music streaming service with millions of monthly active users. We are 150 entrepreneurs, across New York, California, Mumbai, Gurgaon, and Bangalore, who help music lovers access, discover, and listen to their favorite music across all languages and genres. We blend digital technology, data analysis (which we have affectionately coined Music Science), and a strong, fearless business acumen to reach all corners of the globe.

Through partnerships with Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Shazam - to name a few - Saavn reaches more music fans than any other South Asian service. Our award-winning mobile products, partnerships, and thought leadership have been featured in some of the world’s leading publications, such as The New York Times, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Economic Times, The Times of India, CNBC, and many more. We are well-funded by some of the world’s most successful institutional investors and global media companies, including Tiger Global Management, Bertelsmann, Steadview Capital, Liberty Media, Mousse Partners, Quilvest, and a number of strategic individuals. Beyond investing, these are advisors and supporters of our vision, our passion, and our collective ability to deliver a revolutionary music experience as the leader in India.

OUR CULTURE:

At Saavn, we ignite passion and performance to work towards a collective goal: building a mobile entertainment ecosystem and the best possible music experience for hundreds of millions of people. From in-office performances by some of the world’s most beloved musicians to opportunities for international travel, Saavn offers a dynamic and unconventional work environment. We believe creativity and technology blend together like sweet melodies. When you choose Saavn, you join a diverse world of high-caliber techies, artists, and inventors, hailing from companies like Yahoo!, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Qualcomm, HBO, Microsoft, Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm, Quikr, MSN, and NDTV. We are amongst the few digital companies that provide tremendous opportunities for high-tech work in Mumbai, that one would have to otherwise seek in Silicon Valley.  Our value-based, people-first work culture is about empowering every individual on our global team to be a catalyst for change in this dynamic digital world. Every day is an opportunity to bring your thinking to life, and to expand, learn, and grow. No idea is left unconsidered. No voice is left unheard. 

ROLE:

Saavn is looking for a well-rounded, experienced, and meticulous front-end developer to join our team and help bring our design ideas to life. You should love the web, mobile web, (and native mobile would be great too), care as much about your code as designers do about their designers, and know how to bridge the gap between the two. For you, coding an interface is more than a task – it’s a passion. You love taking concepts and transforming them into amazing experiences, beautiful animations, performant code, and most of all, love and take great pride in what you do.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Build interfaces (web and mobile) with, or alongside, the design and product teams
  • Contribute to the design process, and obsess over how to make a beautiful design even more enjoyable, down the finest details
  • Create simple and delightful experiences that people love to use
  • Write performant, scalable code, maintain and improve existing code, and manage multiple projects across various teams
  • Unit testing, code reviews, and constant performance improvements
  • Obsess over the brand, the details, every dropped frame, and every millisecond of load time, across every platform

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Multiple years (at least 5+) of professional experience building and shipping code in professional consumer products
  • Expert knowledge of all web front-end technologies, including all versions of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and browser compliance
  • Deep understanding of DOM APIs, native Javascript, libraries, and when to use them
  • Familiarity with PHP especially; other back-end languages are a plus
  • Experience, and comfort, working with designers to implement their work, animations, transitions, and anything else they can dream up
  • Obsessively clean and organized code

BONUS SKILLS:

Ideally, you’ll also excel at least a few of the following:

  • iOS (Objective-C, Swift) or Android (Java, XML) native development
  • Participation in open source, free, or other software/library development
  • Ability to balance multiple, often vastly different products
  • Conceptualizing and testing multiple solutions to a problem

BENEFITS AND PERKS:

At Saavn, we blur work and play, and you get all the perks of a global company.  You will get to work with a dynamic group of entrepreneurs, who are delivering results and working zealously across time zones to make a difference in the way the world experiences music.  We love what we do, and we think you will too.​

  • Group Mediclaim
  • Flexible vacation policies
  • Free healthy (and unhealthy) lunches & snacks
  • Saavn- sponsored team outings
