Job Description

Who We Are
Casted is a new High Alpha portfolio company and we know great content takes time. And effort. And commitment. Podcasts, videos, webinars - they all take a lot of work to produce and publish. So why stop there? Casted is a platform crafted specifically for B2B marketers. We make it easy for those marketers to atomize, activate, and amplify their content to extract maximum value from every piece. For example, let’s take podcasts: marketers simply upload finished episodes into the platform and use the Casted tools to quickly and easily transcribe, clip, share, embed, and repurpose them - then quickly and easily track how audiences are engaging with them.

In short, Casted not only makes it possible, but easy for marketers to get more - much more - from their audio and video content.

But that’s just what we do. Here’s why we do it.

We’re passionate. Weirdly passionate. We love this company we’re building, the culture we’re cultivating, and the work we get to do each day. We thrive on creative challenges and encourage brave thinking. We appreciate quick wit and intellectual humor, as well as a little well-timed self-deprecation.

We take the work we’re doing pretty seriously, but not ourselves. We love collaborating because our team is packed with diverse thinking and brilliant minds and we believe that differences in opinions and backgrounds are where the best products are born. But we also appreciate some good old fashioned heads-down time to do great work individually.

We are obsessed with creating things that are truly exceptional. And for that, we need truly exceptional people to join our team. If this sounds like you, we would like to interrogate meet you.

What We’re Looking For

A software engineer who loves building products. Hopefully you love making those products on Google Cloud, like we do, but even if you don’t, we’re hiring for what you can know, not just what’s in your head right now. We’re curious people and want to work with those that are equally into learning.

We will treat you like an owner and expect the opinions and passion of someone who owns this challenge with us.

Bullets points of stuff we’re looking for:
Experience building and shipping scalable software products on cloud technologies like Kubernetes with languages like NodeJS or Go. Or whatever you’re passionate about as long as the team can work with you.
Can work collaboratively but are also able to own a project with minimal guidance
Familiarity with software development processes and people
Builds in quick iterations to learn quickly
Knows about testing and why it’s important

High Alpha is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and at Casted we consider diversity paramount to our success.

What You’ll Do
Play an important role in bringing the product vision to life. You’ll work closely with designers, developers, and founders to plan how we build the product. As a key member of the team, you’ll also share opinions and contribute to what we build, as well as how, when, and why.

Some bullets points about what a day might look like:
Participate in story mapping, shaping, or roadmapping
Scope ideas and communicate complexity and feasibility
Develop micro services and deploy them in Kubernetes
Write tests and documentation
Research and code new ideas in quick iterations
Analyze existing code for optimization

Interested? Great. We can’t wait to meet you.
