JOB TITLE: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING INTERN
LOCATION: MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA

OUR STORY:

Saavn is the world’s largest South Asian focused music streaming service with millions of monthly active users. We are 150 entrepreneurs, across New York, California, Mumbai, Gurgaon, and Bangalore, who help music lovers access, discover, and listen to their favorite music across all languages and genres. We blend digital technology, data analysis (which we have affectionately coined Music Science), and a strong, fearless business acumen to reach all corners of the globe.

Through partnerships with Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Shazam - to name a few - Saavn reaches more music fans than any other South Asian service. Our award-winning mobile products, partnerships, and thought leadership have been featured in some of the world’s leading publications, such as The New York Times, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Economic Times, The Times of India, CNBC, and many more. We are well-funded by some of the world’s most successful institutional investors and global media companies, including Tiger Global Management, Bertelsmann, Steadview Capital, Liberty Media, Mousse Partners, Quilvest, and a number of strategic individuals. Beyond investing, these are advisors and supporters of our vision, our passion, and our collective ability to deliver a revolutionary music experience as the leader in India.

OUR CULTURE:

At Saavn, we ignite passion and performance to work towards a collective goal: building a mobile entertainment ecosystem and the best possible music experience for hundreds of millions of people globally. From in-office performances by some of the world’s most beloved musicians to opportunities for international travel, Saavn offers a dynamic and unconventional work environment. We believe creativity and technology blend together like sweet melodies. Our value-based, people-first work culture is about empowering every individual on our global team to be a catalyst for change in this dynamic digital world. Every day is an opportunity to bring your thinking to life, and to expand, learn, and grow. No idea is left unconsidered. No voice is left unheard.

ROLE:

Saavn is looking for driven interns to join our rapidly growing engineering team in Mountain View, California. Saavn interns are not kept out of sight in copy rooms!

  • Analyze and improve efficiency and scalability of mobile and web applications
  • Help document and refine product specifications using collaboration tools such as Bugzilla, Subversion and PowerPoint

WHAT YOU WILL BRING TO THE TEAM:

  • Currently enrolled in the Bachelor/Master of Science program in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a similar program with an expected graduation date on or before December 2016
  • Strong algorithm background, programming skills, operating systems and general system design
  • Knowledge with numerical analysis
  • Strong desire to learn new technologies and techniques
  • Excellent communications skills including ability to communicate clearly, professionally, both verbally and written, and at a level suitable for a variety of audiences
  • Excellent listening skills, inquisitive, positive, team-oriented, enthusiastic approach

BENEFITS AND PERKS:

At Saavn, we blur work and play, and you get all the perks of a global company.  You will get to work with a dynamic group of entrepreneurs, who are delivering results and working zealously across time zones to make a difference in the way the world experiences music.  We love what we do, and we think you will too.

  • Paid Internship! 
  • Free healthy (and unhealthy) lunches, snacks, and drinks
  • Saavn-sponsored team outings
