The Role:

The Splice Platform teams build and maintain tools, libraries and core services that power Splice. The team tackles both frontend and backend platform investments, making other teams’ lives easier by building and maintaining high quality and high performance software solutions.

As the Engineering Manager for Platform, you’ll partner with multiple product teams to define the platform team roadmap, grow and cultivate an excellent team, and execute according to plan to deliver value for both the engineering and product teams.   

Why Splice?

You will play a critical and valued role on the team ensuring Splice is available and performant for the artists who rely on us every day. You’ll be entrusted with safeguarding the product of artists’ hard work, ensuring they can focus on their creative process.

As advocates for artists everywhere, we’re building a creative ecosystem for music producers. With this ecosystem, we’re cultivating a global community of creators that fosters inspiration, connection, focus, and growth.

Our work environment is no different. We encourage inclusion, collaboration, big ideas, helping where we can and asking for assistance when we need it. We aim for steady, measured expansion through experimentation and iteration. We encourage optimism, respect, accountability, and transparency in the workplace. We’re trailblazers who aren’t afraid to stumble, because every stumble offers an opportunity to continuously improve our processes, products, strategies, and even ourselves.

We value inclusion and diversity - your uniqueness makes us stronger.  We are looking for a culture add, not a culture fit.

  • Make sound first-principle decisions around staffing, and making the rationale clear to partners and team members
