Job Description

Who are we?

Mint Songs is a venture-backed company building the picks & shovels for music artists to create vibrant web3 communities through NFTs. Our mission is to help as many music artists build sustainable and livable incomes while helping them build a community that they own without any intermediaries. We live out our mission everyday through our core values:


Set New Paradigms. Our mission requires us to navigate through a new space. We start from first-principles to be different, creative and persistent. Big or small, we are creating the new norm.


Build Collectively. We are one team with one single mission - redefining the music industry. We unite in our passions and collaborate with optimism, integrity and trust.


Never stop learning. In building a new product in a relatively new world of crypto & web3, we actively learn from our community, educate ourselves and others, and celebrate the victories and struggles that are a byproduct of these processes.


Engineering at Mint

We believe that software can redefine the music space and how we monetize it, and we're looking to build a team of passionate, talented and relentless engineers to make that dream possible for more artists and fans alike. Our engineering team is the engine room of the business. You’ll be working collaboratively with engineers that have worked at top VC backed companies and large organizations alike. We are a scrappy, diligent, and hard working group of engineers that attempt to strike the perfect balance of speed with care of product. We work collectively to define, point and rapidly iterate on our backlog and you’ll be an integral part of the team with say in anything ranging from prioritization to technological blockers.


At Mint we place a strong emphasis on collaboration, start-to-finish ownership, grit and curiosity.
How you'd be redefining the music space:

  • Working with a cross-functional team of engineers and designers to build products that alter the landscape of music NFTs
  • Owning the implementation of features throughout their entire lifecycle from ideation to ship
  • Being an advocate of engineering practices and initiatives that keep code-quality while still maintaining an overall high team velocity
  • You love a fast-paced, use-case centric, product development team and will architect, develop, and test and deploy features at a rapid, iterative pace


Who you are:

  • You are passionate about building and taking things from Zero to One
  • You value collaboration as much as writing good, clean code
  • You make the effort to design and write code that is scalable, performant, and easy for your teammates to build upon and maintain
  • You have made significant technological decisions and stuck around to deal with the consequences
  • You have built something end to end and have (or had) users actively engaging with it

Our stack:
