What kind of career opportunities exist at SoundCloud?

Pros

Excellent engineering culture Best diversity I've seen in Berlin, and engineering leaders care Good opportunities for learning, people help each other Lots of users, so you get to solve problems at scale Lots of hard architectural work to do, that you won't get to solve elsewhere Growth opportunities if you're motivated Small teams, so you have high impact

Cons

Product direction could be better, a lot of senior product leaders left in recent years. It seems to be getting better Very fast paced, which can get tiring over time

Advice to Management

Simplify the product and focus on what matters to our users

Good opportunities for learning, people help each other

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at SoundCloud?

Pros

Great colleagues who care about our users and quality of our product. Learning and development opportunities, self allocated time. Interesting and challenging problems.

Cons

My team structure got changed several times because of reorgs. Most of the decisions are top-down, that produce dead on arrival projects. Lack of transparency and trust from the leadership. New technology operations team endangers the existing culture.

Advice to Management

Don’t ruin it. Instead of chasing easy revenue streams, put an effort to find a sustainable business model. Reorgs can be necessary, but there should be limits.

Learning and development opportunities, self allocated time.

What is the feeling of job security at SoundCloud?

Pros

Cool office and some of the colleagues 2 times free lunch Nice kitchen with fresh fruits and food The industry is interesting

Cons

Work life is not very much balanced- depends on team/departments A lot of political games Not feel the internal company communication is always honest and transparent Some of the people managers are very green (i think due to lay off in summer 2018, the most experienced, probably also the most expensive employees were fired. The left-over were promoted to a higher level without enough capability and experience)
