Why Splice? 

Music starts at Splice. As a collection of artists, producers, creators and collaborators, Splice sweats every detail involved in the creative process. From our expansive library of content, to the tools we provide, to our company work culture, we’re constantly evolving towards being the best advocates for our artists and employees. If you work at Splice you’ll be asked, “what does music mean to you?” That’s because music is at the core of everything we do. It’s why we hire trailblazers to help us solve problems, navigate uncharted territory, and change the industry for the better. It’s why we seek out diversity in who we hire, represent and collaborate with to ensure that we’re growing towards a more inclusive and open minded reality. And it’s why we hold ourselves accountable for our part in shaping music creation.

  • Planning for the future of our payments system: implementing new features from our providers, transitioning to a service architecture, working cross-departmentally to proactively address fraud and abuse.

  • Engaging with our domain model: building functionality for subscription, lease, order, invoice, and payments; working with licensing, currency, discount, and tax use cases; mapping our model to Recurly, Avalara, and payment gateways.

  • Working in our Go API and JavaScript client applications

  • Supporting our Customer Experience team to investigate and resolve issues

  • Participating in respectful code review to shape not just our code, but the way we think and talk about our work
