The Genius engineering team builds and maintains a website and apps that are used by 100 million people every month. The majority of the content—lyrics, annotations, and metadata—is crowdsourced by an engaged group of contributors using a complex and ever evolving technical platform.
Genius is looking to hire an Senior Android Freelancer to help work on the Android version of a new Genius product launching on all platforms in Q3. This person would be expected to work roughly full time (40 hours a week) and would ideally be located in the New York area or able to travel to Genius HQ in Gowanus for the first week of the project.
In this role you will work closely with the Genius CTO and mobile team to define product specs and timelines. While we can’t yet talk publicly about this project, it is a new way of giving users the most interesting information about a song by combining Genius articles, videos, and crowdsourced annotations into one cohesive product.
