We’re looking for more great developers for our specialized team that designs and builds the SoundCloud API.
The API is a vital part of establishing SoundCloud as the leading online audio platform. Third-party apps and services can connect and become part of a rapidly growing network for audio creation and sharing. We already have over a hundred integrated apps and thousands of registered third-party developers, and the numbers are growing fast.
Our aim is to stay in the front-line of public API providers and lead the way with support for the latest and greatest web technologies. In the API team, you get a chance to work closely with our other development teams as well as external partners.
If you’re a sucker for cache trimming, API mashups, RESTfulness, OAuth, music, oEmbed, JSON, etc... join and help us changing the world of sound!
