Our goal and passion is to help music artists grow their fan base. Trackloop.fm is the best way for Artists, DJs, and Bands to get their music out there.
Are you consistent? Do you have great attention to detail and management skills? If so, you might be a good fit.
The Jr. Front-End engineering role builds UI iterations layered on top of our REST APIs. Sometimes that means building simple MVP prototypes as a proof of concept, sometimes that means building new products into the production environment and often it means brainstorming with a product manager to figure out the best way to programmatically solve problems.
We're new. And, we're fast-paced. We strive to fail fast and iterate on what we've learned. So, it's kinda impractical to outline all of your duties and responsibilities, up-front. You haven't started failing, yet. What makes a little more sense is to talk about the open questions we have around our products and the problems we'll need to solve. From here, your energy, experience and creativity should lead you to creative solutions to problems.
You'll need to be able to look at your own work objectively and be open to feedback on it. You'll need to be fun, or interesting, or quirky in some way. You'll need to be able to work well with a small team. You'll need to be able to work remotely, initially.
It'd be cool if...
You're an HTML/CSS genius
You've got some JS experience and skills
You know some PHP and can implement a thing or two every now & again (API is written in PHP)
You're not opposed to teaching teammates a few tricks of the trade
You've got some basic photoshop skills
You've got opinions on music
You've worked in start-ups, small companies, or have a desire to
You like learning new stuff
You like cool T-Shirts
A little more about us.
We're currently rolling into the private-beta stage of the company. We've got a small team, including one local front-ender, and a couple remote engineers, a VP of Sales, Brand Manager, Community Manager and Documentation lead. To answer some questions, up-front, about Trackloop, I'm including a couple video demos of the product:

This gig would begin, not in an office or on an 8-hour/day schedule. We're going to be a bit more agile than that. This also doesn't begin as a paid gig. All early members will be offered stock and will have the opportunity to acquire more as their productivity grows.
We're all excited about the opportunity we have. We're looking forward to meeting the next Track Team member who will fit in that mold!
