The FMA is Looking for a Developer

SEEKING FREELANCER
N
YC/NJ/Remote

The Free Music Archive is seeking a skilled backend engineer, with solid background in modern languages and techniques, who loves going down the rabbit hole to solve difficult problems related to performance, user experience, and long-term structural stability of a modern, high-traffic website (and who doesn't mind working with legacy code).

We're also ideally looking for significant overlap with our current stack:

• Mostly backend: PHP, MySQL, RDS, S3, Redis, Sphinx, Memcached, Chef; REST & API design generally
• And sometimes frontend: HTML5, JS, CSS3, Flash

Along with experience with reasonably modern source control (Git/SVN/Hg) and build practices. Note that we aren't zealots about any of the above; what we're most after is solid engineering chops -- if you're currently working with Rails or Django or Scala but don't mind digging into modern PHP for a good cause, that's fine. We need someone willing to roll up their sleeves and take long-term ownership of the project and address problems holistically. Here you'll have the chance to make valued, long-term strategic contributions to one of WFMU's most important projects.

For more info, please send a note to Andrea, including a CV or a resume, your GitHub profile (or other portfolio) and any other information about yourself you think would be helpful for us to know.
