Join our team Flamingo and work, learn, play and grow together with experienced developers (and music enthusiasts) to create an evolved music ecosystem that empowers all those involved.

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.

FOCUS OF THE ROLE

We work in teams of 3-5 developers, a lead developer and an agile project manager who is a scrum master. You’ll be working on Utopia products built on the Utopia big data platform. We work full-stack including the product infrastructure and user experience. We take a holistic approach to product creation from data to robust backend and customer experience.

Depending on your experience and strengths, we will find the right role for you in the new team. We’re looking for a Lead Developer, as well as senior developers.

THE IDEAL SKILLSET 

We are not dogmatic about tech stack and we welcome experienced developers with different skills. Our stack is Golang and Node.js though and we’ll require you to solve a case and show us your understanding of one of the mentioned technologies. 

You are a passionate and skilled developer that already has a couple of years of experience.

  • Proficiency working with either Golang and/or Node.js.
  • High quality code is even more important to you than the Force.
  • You love to learn and you love to share your knowledge.
  • Preferably you’ve worked with MongoDB and/or SQL.
  • Knowing ES6, TypeScript and/or React is a plus.
  • Familiarity with Google Cloud and CI/CD skills are highly valued.
  • Good communications skills, fluency in English.
  • Good self organisation skills and strong personal integrity.

THE HIRING PROCESS

  • You send us your CV in English.
  • We invite you for an introductory phone/video call to get to know you better and share more about us.
  • You get a programming exercise and unlimited time to send us your solution.
  • Our lead developers evaluate it and we provide you with the feedback.
  • You meet our lead developers for the technical interview.
  • You meet the hiring manager for the culture fit interview.

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.
