Genius is looking for a remote Senior Full Stack Engineer to help build the ultimate music companion, enabling fans to collaboratively transcribe lyrics and write annotations that live on Genius.com and everywhere people experience music. We’re looking for makers with a sophisticated code sense: folks who’ve built cool things, but who can also maintain and scale those things, and who feel at home deep in the guts of a library.

The best candidates will have professional experience on a web stack serving millions of users, will be proficient with Ruby on Rails, Postgres or MySQL, and have some experience with a front-end JavaScript framework (Angular, React, Ember, etc).

As the premier global database of lyrics and artist-focused content, Genius’s mission is to celebrate More Than The Music—the lyrics, the stories behind the songs, and the creative connections that meaningfully drive culture. Through our original content, technology, and live & virtual experiences, Genius spotlights the artists who are shaping music culture across every genre and musical discipline, sharing the stories behind their creativity and craft in their own words with over 90M+ people each month on Genius.com and everywhere music fans connect across the internet.
