Who We Are:
Clash’s mission is simple: help creators make a living doing what they love. Founded by a former creator, we’re building a platform that provides fans with new ways to engage with their favorite creators and creators with meaningful monetization tools.   Since our early launch in Summer 2020, we've seen explosive growth and recently acquired the Byte app. Now, with our combined 5 million users, we cannot wait to bring our vision of a more creator-centric world to reality.  We love creators, love LA, and are looking to scale our team. Join us.

Our creators and their fans deserve a scalable, secure, and constantly evolving backend. You'll help us deliver this by leading the design, configuration, and deployment of our company infrastructure, working closely with other technical folks on the backend team.

We need someone who can automate the boring things, scale the important things, and troubleshoot the broken things. You should have experience with deploying, monitoring, and scaling high-traffic web APIs serving mobile clients, and should be an advocate for protecting our creators' data and ensuring their success!

We offer flexible working hours, pay a decent market rate, and have a team of caring, motivated, and highly emotionally intelligent people ready to work with you on building a world-class platform for creators and their millions of fans.
