Over 1 billion people have tried learning an instrument and failed. More than 90% of people who start playing music give up in less than a year. Enter Soundbrenner. By combining wearables with great software, Soundbrenner creates a music practice experience that is fun and rewarding, allowing anyone to learn and master any instrument. We make music practice addictive.

To date we shipped over 100,000 wearables and are in music stores in over 40 countries. Our mobile apps are used by over 600,000 musicians every month. We have offices in Hong Kong and Berlin. While we are proud of the progress we made so far, we still consider ourselves to be at the very beginning of what is to come.

Job summary:

We are currently looking for a Software Engineering Intern to help us build next generation features for our leading app for musicianst. You will get exclusive access to see how a modern music tech startup works from the inside and work together with our engineers on an exciting project during your internship.

What you’ll do:

  • Based on your background in programming languages and experience level we will assign you a project for the duration of your internship. This will happen with your involvement based on your area of interest and skills. The goal is to find something that allows you to take over actual responsibility and work on something that delivers value for the company, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to learn and work on something you are passionate about
  • Example projects in the past:
    • Add voiceover support for our iOS app, to enable people with visual impairment to use it
    • Develop an internal app from scratch to manage the serial number of our wearables
    • Develop a big new hairy feature around cloud library synchronization

What we’re looking for:

  • You keep yourself up to date about modern coding style and dev tools such as subversioning systems (git) and modern debugging techniques
  • Tidy. You code concise, think ahead, document your work properly and apply coding design patterns.
  • You need to care deeply about doing great work. You need to derive your satisfaction not from praise, but from being proud of what you accomplished yourself. Work needs to play a major part in your life and your priorities. As member of Soundbrenner you are building a company from the ground up. That means your life right now needs to be all about growing, learning and building and you need to be very excited about the idea of that.
  • You need to be able to think outcome oriented. You always need to understand why you are ultimately doing something and constantly ask yourself if what you are currently doing is the best way to achieve it.
  • You should be very comfortable being uncomfortable. Challenges and problems don’t scare you. If you are surrounded by problems you don’t focus on what’s wrong but on how you can solve it.

What it’s like working at Soundbrenner:

  • Witness the daily life of a fast growing startup from the inside.
  • Training on the job – we’ll be able to help you get started with everything you don’t know already, so you can excel at your job.
  • You can take on a lot of responsibility and enjoy a steep learning curve.
  • We offer a work environment that holds you accountable for results, but gives you the freedom on how you get there.
  • Work environment filled with exceptionally passionate people. It will be quite fast paced and a lot of fun.
  • If you are like us you have a passion for great design, technology and hardware. At Soundbrenner you get the chance to make this passion your job. Working for a hardware company you get to witness the miracles of making something out of nothing and holding your own product in your hand. What could be more exciting?
  • The work we do at Soundbrenner has the potential to touch the life of every single musician on the planet. If we are successful your work may influence an entire industry for the better. We love music and working on something that matters inspires us to give our best every single day.
  • You will be provided with the latest computer equipment such as a MacBook Pro by Apple and large screens to work on. You’ll also get the chance to work with the latest, most-modern software tools.
