You will be joining a deeply technical culture. Our existing management team consists of hands-on coders all the way up to the CEO level.

  • Ensure that issues are tracked and receive appropriate follow-up
  • Work cross-functionally with engineering, business development, product and project teams to ensure deliveries are on-time


  • Hands-on experience as a software engineer and extensive experience as a Product, Program, or Engineering manager
  • Solid foundational knowledge of client-server applications
  • Strong leadership and organizational skills, attention to detail, and ability to ensure items don't “fall through the cracks”
  • Excellent people skills, ability to establish credibility and get things done
  • BS in CS/EE or equivalent experience

Nice to haves:

  • Track record of building highly-scalable, complex server-side engineering systems
  • Familiarity with issue-tracking systems like JIRA
  • Prior start-up experience
  • Exposure to audio, speech, mobile, and related technologies

SoundHound Inc. turns sound into understanding and actionable meaning.

Our latest product, Hound, leverages our Speech-to-Meaning technology to showcase a ground-breaking smartphone experience. Our SoundHound product applies our technology to music, enabling people to discover, explore, and share the music around them, and even find the name of that song stuck in their heads by singing or humming.
