Senior Backend Developer

Record Union is looking for full-stack backend engineers to help spearhead us in building the next generation music distribution platform. The future platform is cloud-native and event-driven.

We are an entrepreneurial, self-funded and profitable company in the midst of a swirling music-business transformation. We care about our artists and want to become the best service for an aspiring Independent artist to distribute and monetise their creative work. 

We have an existing customer base of 250,000+ artists using our platform world-wide, but we also need to step up our efforts to develop applications and insights faster and in an agile way.

The current platform is built in .NET C# in a monolithic manner, which we will be migrating piece by piece to a cloud native, message-based micro-service architecture. 

The new platform will be built in C# .NET Core, built by CircleCI, packaged in Docker Containers and deployed to Google‘s Cloud. 

This will enable us to build an organisation that can scale and parallelise our product development efforts. 


What you'll do:

  • Design, develop, build and maintain .NET Core based micro-services with focus on high-availability, stability and resiliency
  • Be creative, pragmatic and take initiative on how to move services and functions from the current monolithic platform on the new, cloud-native platform with minimal disruption to the users or the business
  • Be part of designing our next generation REST API  
  • Work closely with UX and Front-End team to design a cohesive, simple and enticing user experience for our customers
  • Incorporate established best practices in the management of our different operating environments
  • Take operational responsibility for the services that are owned by the team, making sure the applications are available 24/7 and part of the on-call rotation

Who are you?

  • Proficiency in C# .NET 
  • Experience in one of the big cloud providers (e.g. Google Cloud, AWS or Azure)
  • Experience with monitoring, alerting, diagnosing and debugging issues in a cloud environment
  • Experience with conventional relational databases (NoSQL understanding/experience is a bonus!)
  • You know and care about engineering best-practices and clean, elegant code

Bonus points for experience with:

  • Message based / Event Sourcing architecture
  • CircleCI
  • Azure DevOps
  • Music distribution service APIs (e.g. Spotify)
  • React



  • M.Sc. in Engineering or Data Science or similar University degree
  • Proven track-record of building and maintaining distributed, data-driven applications

What we value

Innovation, collaboration, transparency, passion, and playfulness are a start. We believe our culture is a core part of what makes Record Union successful. We’re looking for someone who understands a good culture and will help shape it as it evolves.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our customers, the artists. Ideally you also love playing or making music.
