Software Engineer / Frontend
Acast was founded in 2014 and is the world’s largest independent podcast company.
A pioneer in the open podcast ecosystem, Acast’s powerful podcast monetization marketplace delivers for
creators and advertisers alike. Advertisers can efficiently target an engaged audience of listeners through
dynamic ad insertion, while podcasters are given access to a range of monetization opportunities — including
paid subscriptions through Acast+ — and the necessary tools to expand their listener base.
If you listen to a podcast hosted with Acast and hear an ad, it’s Acast delivering that audio behind the scenes
— and sharing revenue with the podcaster.
The company has a global footprint across 12 countries and, during 2021, had 3.75 billion listens on Acast-
connected podcasts. Today, Acast hosts 40,000 shows. Acast’s headquarters are located in Stockholm,
Sweden and the Company has nine local subsidiaries in the UK, US, Australia, Norway, France, Germany,
Ireland, Mexico and Canada.
About the role
We are looking for a Software Engineer that has experience with frontend development and building user-friendly, scalable web applications. You will work in an autonomous, purpose-driven team and take an important role in shipping new features while continuously aiming to improve the performance, stability, and scalability of the systems. You are expected to contribute with frontend development within your team but we also encourage everyone to understand and contribute to other parts of the stack. Since we use Node for many of our backend systems, you are expected to work with and be interested in learning that. You will be working in a multi-disciplinary environment with agile principles. We are cloud agnostic and run our infrastructure and systems on Azure, AWS, as well as dedicated servers. Our engineering team is mostly located in central Stockholm, but with a remote first culture we’re able to bring on people who prefer full-time remote work.
Who you are
- You are interested in learning or have experience in React and its ecosystem
- You care about design, usability and the user experience
- You have a pragmatic mindset and can make trade-offs on what to optimise for in your solutions
Acast is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin or any of the other wonderful characteristics that make us different.
Culture is our number one priority as a business. We believe people come first, and we work every day to enable autonomy, continuous improvement and bring out the best in people. We’re global and have remote teams, so it’s even more important that we strive for an open, inclusive and caring environment where everyone feels visible and welcome. We consider ourselves a modern organization driven by strong values to create the best, most fulfilling and nurturing culture.
We very much look forward to finding the next great person to join our cause!
