WELCOME TO UTOPIA

Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate. While the tech world has moved into the future, the music industry continues to be shaped by inefficient systems of the past. At Utopia we believe there is a better way. Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin. Unlocking the industry’s full potential by unifying it all in one truly holistic space. Some might call that a Utopia.

Funnily enough, so do we. Welcome to Utopia. Where music lives.

WHAT UTOPIANS DO

We are building a better world for music with innovative big data technology that tracks online music sources and translates them into meaningful music consumption reports for royalty collection. The solution we’re building does not threaten to usurp the role of industry incumbents - it is about bringing transparency in the industry and supporting efficient royalty collection. 

WHAT YOUR ROLE WILL BE

Utopia Music is on a lookout for a Front-end Web Developer that will produce visual elements of Utopia's sites, online advertising and other digital interactive assets by translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code. Fundamental part of the role is understanding the purpose and elements of visual design and how it reflects on programming. You'll work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between visual design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works.

ESSENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Developing new user-facing features (we're into most groundbreaking and extraordinary ideas!) 
  • Building reusable code and libraries for future us
  • Ensuring the technical feasibility of visual and interaction design
  • Optimizing pieces of code for maximum speed and scalability
  • Assuring that all user input is validated before submitting to back-end
  • Collaborating with other team members and stakeholders

THE IDEAL SKILLSET

  • +4 years of experience as Full-Stack/ Front-End Developer
  • Proficient understanding of web markup, including HTML5, CSS
  • Basic understanding of server-side CSS pre-processing platforms, such as LESS and SAS
  • Proficient understanding of client-side scripting and JavaScript frameworks, including jQuery
  • Good understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates, and AJAX
  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, to be able to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments on an image. Familiarity with tools such as as Figma, Sketch or Photoshop is a plus
  • Good understanding of SEO principles

WHAT WE OFFER

  • Great atmosphere - we live, love & breathe music & tech!
  • Working in an impact oriented team.
  • An experienced team to learn from, with experience in multiple startups and big tech companies. 
  • Benefits depend on a location. 
  • We are supporting work permits for employees that have already moved here from countries outside the EU. However, we do not support relocation at the moment.

UTOPIANS

Perks & Benefits

If you are not yet convinced by our awesome team and great atmosphere — here you have some extra frosting on the cake.

  • 🏋️‍♀️ Active work space

    At the Stockholm office we have a ping pong table and a gym in the basement and people are encouraged to use them both. We also have a generous wellness grant for anyone who prefer to do other things.

  • ☕️ Breakfast every morning

    Every morning we gather around the bar for breakfast. It is of course voluntary but the coffee is great.

  • 👾 A bunch of nerds

    We love what we do and we do what we love. So there will be a lot of interesting discussions going on about pretty much anything connected to music or tech and a lot of Star Wars references to acompany those.

  • 🏰 A little here and a little there

    We love to work together. Where exactly that is at the moment is less important.

Work @ Utopia

Do you like to work in teams with a lot of individual responsibility? Yes, we know it sound cliché but this is also how it actually is.

Every morning after breakfast we gather in our teams to plan the day, assign tasks to kickstart the days. Agile, fast and inventive is how we like it. That also gives us room to pair up or hold a workshop if we need help in finding the best solution. 

A helping hand and a good coffee might just be what we need to get things done.
