Job Details

Sounder is the end-to-end podcast management platform that brings Audio Intelligence to creators and media publishers. For years, creators and publishers have depended solely on their own instincts when making important decisions about their content. Data and insights have been missing from the industry.
With Sounder, there’s a new way to operate. Creators can blend their creativity with contextual data and insights to supercharge their growth. Publishers can unlock new advertising opportunities, deepen audience engagement, and drive content discovery.
If you’re passionate about the creator economy and the future of audio, you’ve found the right place. Apply from anywhere, and join our remote team!

We want to continue to build a talented team of Quality Assurance Engineers who will own their role, work hard to improve themselves, and encourage others to do the same.
