Rakkit has been out in the wild for a little over two months now. We’re taking small steps towards how we envisage the application working but there is no doubt we have a lot to do before we get there. That’s where hopefully you come in…
If you’d like to be part of the Rakkit team and help us to develop a great music player for the web then we’d love to hear from you.
What is Rakkit?
Rakkit is a music aggregation platform for the web. We monitor as many popular music websites as possible. Rakkit hangs on their every word, waiting for the next hottest track to drop so we can dish it out to our users in a beautiful clean interface that allows them to glide through updates from all their favourite sites effortlessly on a daily basis. But this is only the start…
We’re looking for people with some or all of the following skills:
Ruby on Rails
We welcome introductions, code samples, portfolio examples and even haikus, from music savvy interns with a keen eye for problem solving and programming, to seasoned pro’s looking to cement their stamp on the web.
What will I do?
Your position will most likely be remote, although it’s not unlikely that we’d like to meet you and share a beer at some point.
You will liaise with us at least weekly to discuss which aspects of Rakkit you would most like to work on as well as how you’re getting on. You will then wow us with your enthusiasm and skill in helping us to further the project.
What will I get in return? (Besides love and respect)
In all honesty, right now, nothing.
Rakkit is currently a bootstrapped startup and at present it makes no money. The system is developed solely outside of working hours by team PANDR. As a result, at this time we’re just looking to work build a friendly team of talented people who simply have an untouchable passion for music and Rakkit too.
Who are we?
We’re a small web agency called PANDR, based in deepest darkest Norfolk (UK). I’m Pete (@zoltarSpeaks), the developer and my partner in crime is Rob (@robbarwell, our designer.
If you love your music, like what we’re doing and want to get stuck in then get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
(This is probably what will happen when you join us.)
