About the Team

We’re a small team of builders passionate about creating a world where people are brought together through learning music, celebrating work-in-progress, and sharing moments in the artistic journey. We're diverse and geographically distributed, and we care deeply about building a workforce and culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including women, people of color, and LGBTQ people.

We also want you to know that you can be a great candidate even if you don't perfectly fit the mold we describe below and you can have important skills we haven't even thought of yet. If that's you, don't hesitate to reach out and tell us about yourself.

Your Values

You thrive in an environment of high-responsibility.
You are obsessed with your personal growth and highly self-reflective.
You treat others with kindness. You’re excited when your teammates succeed.
You are insatiably curious. You can’t stop learning. You’re fascinated about underlying drivers of behavior (between teammates, users, anyone).
You’re human and you care about the human-element that technology should highlight, not obscure.
