Front End Developer





JioSaavn is South Asia’s leading music streaming service. We are over 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 JioMusic 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 - JioSaavn 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.


At JioSaavn, we ignite passion and performance to work towards a collective goal: creating the perfect mobile entertainment ecosystem that delivers the best possible music experience to millions of listeners around the world. Our default mode is that of perpetual innovation. Together, we form a concerted rhythm that goes beyond borders. We don't just go with the flow, we create it.

JioSaavn offers a dynamic and unconventional work environment, full of fun wholesome experiences – from in-office performances by some of the world’s most beloved musicians to opportunities for international travel. We believe creativity and technology blend together like sweet melodies. When you choose JioSaavn, you join a diverse world of high-calibre techies, artists, and inventors hailing from companies like Yahoo!, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Qualcomm, HBO, Microsoft, Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm, Quikr, MSN, and NDTV. We are one of the few digital companies to provide employment opportunities that meet the Silicon Valley benchmark – right here in Mumbai! Figures, since we’ve got Silicon Valley covered, too.

Our value-based, people-first work culture is about empowering every individual in our global team to be catalysts 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.

With listeners speaking multiple languages in almost every country in the world, we like to think we have the most diverse user base on the planet. This has only been made possible because of the value we place on radical inclusivity in our offices across the globe. We believe different is wonderful, and what sets us apart is also what brings us closer. JioSaavn prides itself on being an equal opportunity employer. We have committed ourselves to creating a safe environment with fair and equal access and opportunities, sans discrimination. We encourage everyone to be open to experiences and perspectives beyond their normal; divergent thinkers create differentiated products, and even better music.


JioSaavn 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 designs, 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.


  • 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 to 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


  • 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


  • 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


At JioSaavn, 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.

  • Premium health coverage (medical, dental, and vision)
  • Discounted gym membership  
  • 401K Matching Contributions
  • Flexible vacation policies
  • Free healthy (and unhealthy) lunches, snacks, and drinks
  • JioSaavn-sponsored team outings
