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.
Jon makes up half of our Android team and is our latest import from New York City.
Fun fact he mentions in the interview:
He holds the high score for the game Must Eat Birds
Fun fact he doesn’t mention in the interview:
Jon actually started working on the Android app as a third-party developer and when we saw what he did, we hired him right away.
