Front-End Developer Intern

JOB TITLE: FRONT-END DEVELOPER INTERN

LOCATION: NEW YORK, NY

OUR STORY:

Saavn is South Asia’s leading music streaming service with over 22 million active million users. We are 200 entrepreneurs, across New York, California, Mumbai, Gurgaon, and Bangalore, who help music lovers access, discover, and listen to their favorite songs across languages and genres. In early 2018, a merger between Jio Music and Saavn was announced; creating a combined entity valued at over $1 billion. 

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, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and Shazam - to name a few - Saavn reaches more music fans across the world. Our award-winning mobile products, partnerships, innovations and thought leadership have been featured in some of the world’s leading publications, from The New York Times, to The Wall Street Journal, The Economic Times to Forbes, and many more. We are well-funded by some of the world’s most successful institutional investors and global media companies as well as a number of strategic individuals. Beyond investing, they 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 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 vision 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 and meticulous Front-End Developer Intern to join our team and help bring our design ideas to life. You should love the web (and mobile too would be even better), care as much about your code as designers do about their designs, and know how to bridge the gap between the two. 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. Saavn interns are not kept out of sight in copy rooms! The Front-End Developer Intern will report directly to the Chief Product Officer & SVP, Design.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Help build and implement new site (and potentially mobile app) features and interactions
  • Improve, rebuild, and optimize existing features and elements
  • Collaborate and strategize with the Design and Engineering teams to ensure interactions are fully optimized, properly implemented, and built to perform
  • Have an opinion, produce consistently great work, and champion simplicity in all our products and user experiences

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Bachelors/Masters Degree in progress
  • Knowledge of Javascript (both native and jQuery), HTML(5), CSS(3), and browser compliance
  • Understanding of native DOM APIs, the pros and cons of various Javascript implementations (inline, unobtrusive, etc)
  • Knowledge of the latest web technologies, and an interest in using them when appropriate
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Obsession with user experience and pixel perfect designs
  • Obsession with code quality, cleanliness, and organization
  • Ideally you’ll also have knowledge of one or more of these skills: iOS, Android, or Windows native development, UI / UX Design, and Hand sketching and illustration

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.

  • Paid Internship!
  • Free healthy (and unhealthy) lunches, snacks, and drinks
  • Saavn-sponsored team outings
