More than a decade ago, a commuter stuck in traffic and unable to maintain reception for his favorite radio show asked himself a question. What if you could time shift live radio? Even better, what if you could tune to radio anywhere in the world, instantly, on any device connected to the internet? To do that you'd need to know what's on everywhere, then create an experience to help users navigate a universe of choice. More important, though, with scale you'd have the opportunity to transform an entire medium - broadcasting for the digital age.
Product and technology came together over the next few years to support this vision, and with the introduction of smartphones, adoption exploded. TuneIn today is one of the world's leading audio services, bringing exceptional live and on-demand listening experiences to more than 200 different devices and platforms. We cover every geography, language, format, style, and interest, all programmed, produced, and powered by people.
Joining TuneIn puts you on the front lines of applications that consistently rank among the most popular in their categories and an audience of over 50 million every month. We tackle tough problems in a dynamic space with a smart, good-natured team. With enormous opportunities and an even brighter future ahead, we look forward to the challenge.
We value being a top-notch engineering organization, and have the same high standards with our code and people. We abide by the following principles:
Check-out our principals here: https://github.com/tunein/engineering/blob/master/Principles
We hire diverse, well-rounded, communicative people whom we can envision being friends with and trusting. Our projects tend to be 1-2 engineers maximum, so trust and accountability is required for us to work. Trust also helps us keep processes & overhead to a minimum. So far, we've built a reasonably-sized, high-powered team and are always striving to be the best place to work we can be.
We regularly invest time in your future and support growth, and we show this in a number of ways—clear job responsibilities and expectations for your career path, freedom to move teams, Mission Teams to contribute more broadly, and our quarterly Discovery Days, where you get to spend the whole week working on anything you like, from building innovative features, or approaches to problems ("hackathon" like), addressing nagging issues or problems that take time away from adding value to TuneIn; or simply learning a new technology.
