Senior Software Engineer - Content Pipeline

Other jobs >> General




About the Role:

We believe that a cutting-edge A+ solution to organizing/structuring searchable data (e.g. data curation) is essential. Its difficult to get there via human curation because theres too much data. Its also difficult to get there with a purely machine-curated solution (weve learned that lesson first hand). Our solution at SoundHound has been to hybridize the two approaches. In this role, youll be part of a small and innovative team designing automated algorithms smart enough to approximate a human curator, while also working closely with human curators on the team to achieve the best possible searchable data quality for our apps. We are a meeting-light culture where personal autonomy is valued and trust is given to each team member to manage themselves.

- You are fascinated by the challenge of implementing machine-based solutions to organize/label data the way human curators would - on a scale that would require millions of human curators

- You are a quick learner with sharp coding skills

- You enjoy being part of a small team responsible for systems that directly power the search experience of millions of users every day

- You pay attention to detail and take pride in implement highly maintainable code

- You have a passion for the intersection of music and technology


- Design and implement systems that manage a unique blend of searchable data (including audio, meta-data, and traditional text-based content)

- Lots of coding, testing, and scripting in a Linux environment

- Regularly analyze the data curated by the system and identify areas for improvement


- 5+ years using C++ in a context where efficiency matters

- Strong grasp of algorithms and data structures

- Experience manipulating and managing large amounts of data

- Self-motivated and able to contribute in a team environment

- BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent

Nice to haves:

- Experience working with large catalogs of real-world / messy data

- Familiarity with text search algorithms and related systems

- Experience working with music-related data

- Proficiency with databases/SQL

- Experience with Git
