Scroll to content

Join our teams - Alpha One, Magic, FlaminGo, Dystopia, Discovery and Sygaldry and work, learn, play and grow together with a bunch of experienced developers (and music enthusiasts) while creating a music ecosystem that works to the advantage of all participants.

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

As a developer you’ll work in one of our teams consisting of 3-4 developers, an agile project manager and a lead developer. We are starting every morning with (a breakfast when at the office, then) a stand up and concluding sprints with a review and retrospective. 

You’ll be working on our backend system and its continuous development. With your teammates you’ll be solving heavy database related challenges and you’ll be continuously making an impact.

At Utopia we support your learning and growth as a person and a developer by daily knowledge transfer, pair programming and mob programming sessions within the team as well as external seminars and education.

WHAT SKILLS YOU NEED

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 backend developer (knowing some frontend is a plus) 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 the knowledge.
  • Preferably you worked with MongoDB and/or SQL.
  • Knowing ES6, TypeScript and/or React is only a plus.
  • Fluency in English.
  • Good communications skills.
  • Good self organisation skills and strong personal integrity.

HIRING PROCESS

You can go through 5 (currently all video) interviews. Here are the steps:

  1. You send us your CV and a cover letter in English.
  2. We invite you for an introductory phone/video call to get to know you better and share more about us.
  3. You get the technical test and unlimited time to send us your solution.
  4. Our lead developers evaluate it and we provide you with the feedback.
  5. You have 3 more meetings - with one of our lead developers and the Team Manager, with the Hiring Manager and with your potential new team.

BENEFITS

  • And if you may prefer being on your own and working from home - we’re fine with that too.

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.

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.
