Permanent Full-time Web Developer (PHP, MySQL)

About the Role

First and foremost, Kudos is a music company – but technology and automation are an essential part of our business.  This role offers rare opportunity for an enthusiastic, full-stack web-app developer to join our team – working alongside the Head of Digital to continually refine, adapt and support our digital music supply-chain (delivering quality music to hundreds of services including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and TikTok) while also developing our bespoke internal, and client-facing tools to help streamline workflows and enhance the services we offer our valued retail and record label clients.

Essential Skills

Kudos operates a hybrid of remote and office working.  Although this role may be performed with a high-degree of remote working (if desired), the applicant will be expected to provide some regular attendance at the Kentish Town office.  Applicants must be resident and have the right to work in the UK.

About the Applicant

You will have at least 2 years experience working in a relevant role and/or a portfolio and references to demonstrate your ability to deliver the skills we need.  Although not essential, you may also have qualifications or certifications which will help recommend you for the role.

You probably have an interest in music – perhaps you’re even familiar with the labels we work with.  This is by no means a requirement, but if you also have some existing knowledge or prior experience in the field of music distribution or any related industries then that would make you a particularly good fit.  Any experience with e-commerce would also be an advantage.  Extra marks if the terms DDEX, Content ID and UGC mean anything to you.

You are sociable and are a good communicator; happy to interface directly with the rest of our team and also with our clients.  You are able to manage your own workload and enjoy being left to deliver on your set tasks and daily duties without being micromanaged while participating in the collaborative nature of a small business.
