Audius gives artists the power to share never-before-heard music and monetize streams directly. Developers can build their own apps on top of Audius, giving them access to one of the most unique audio catalogs in existence. 

Backed by an all-star team of investors, Audius was founded in 2018 and serves over 1,000,000 users every month, making it the largest non-financial crypto application ever built.

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for passionate team-players to help us guarantee the stability and quality of the Audius product and protocol. You are a collaborative engineer who enjoys working with a small team to solve big problems that need innovative solutions. You’re eager to jump into multiple parts of our tech stack and have strong CS fundamentals to do so. We solve a lot of problems that can't be easily Googled or searched on StackOverflow.

Our Company

Audius is a 18-person team of entrepreneurs, engineers, audiophiles, and blockchain experts. Our benefits include unlimited PTO, high quality paid medical insurance, FSA, 401k, yearly learning stipend, equipment stipend and a home office setup credit.

About this position

As a software engineer focused on testing infrastructure, you will be responsible for ensuring the continued quality of the world's largest open, decentralized, blockchain-backed music player. Audius is complex. We are solving legacy industry problems in the music space with novel technology in a large-scale distributed systems context. In order to make Audius scale, we are looking for someone to help secure smooth operation in all areas of our stack by identifying the best ways to test our most critical and complicated flows and writing relevant unit, integration, and system tests, architecting their patterns and frameworks, co-opting them seamlessly into our development and CI processes and giving the entire engineering team confidence to ship bug-free, reliable releases.

What you'll do at Audius

  • Build and maintain all our testing infrastructure, tools and tests, like our custom in-house Jepsen inspired test suite, mad-dog
  • Read and update application code to figure out how to best test complicated flows
  • Collaborate with engineering and product teams to identify critical systems and user flows that need to be tested
  • Work with our release captain to triage production bugs, identify regressions and minimize future impacts of such bugs
  • Create dashboards to track test coverage metrics
  • Manage CI and optimize the loop between development and testing

Skills and Experience

  • 2+ years of working as a software engineer focused on testing
  • Experience reading code and writing test specs for services with minimal guidance
  • Solid understanding of scripting programming languages like Python or Javascript as well as Linux and Bash
  • Experience triaging bugs and regressions on production
  • Understanding of modern unit, integration and system test tools like Selenium, Playwright, Mocha, Jasmine, Nock, Pytest
