What do you like most about being a part of the SoundCloud team? There is a huge hunger for knowledge here. This certainly applies to technology, but I think it also applies to other things as well. Take for example the fact that we have a weekly masterclass where any employee can lead a seminar on any topic they think is worthwhile. Thats awesome, and something I bet isn’t common everywhere in my experience.

There is also a shared excitement for the possibilities of SoundCloud, not only from those working here, but from people I know outside the company. Audio is something that hasn’t matured to the point it should on the internet and to be a part of that process is something special.
