Company Location: Anywhere
Are you passionate about solving complex technical problems that have a direct impact on millions of end users? Do you like to work on a modern tech stack and get challenged each day at work? Are you interested in shaping the future of how audio is consumed and monetized? Read on...

We are Jelli, the tech engine behind the largest audio company in America, iHeartMedia, and our mission is to help people enjoy music and audio experiences by providing platform technology that supports free listening through better audio advertising.

We are hiring a Senior Software Engineer (Backend) for our Product team. As a member of this team, you will be working on products that serve millions of audio ads on radio, streaming, and podcasts across the iHeartMedia network. You'll work on server-side components and microservices writing complex algorithms, building scalable and secure APIs, creating integrations to internal and 3rd party systems, and designing data models for efficient data storage. You'll also apply your vast knowledge and experience in algorithms, data structures, API security, and application scaling to solve business-critical problems. Accepting the status quo is not a trait of a Jelli engineer. You are expected to question the defaults, see the big picture, identify areas to better our products, and come up with innovative solutions to enable our products to perform and scale.
