We work with the biggest names in the music industry and route 60+ Million fans every month to the music they love. We are looking for a talented Python Engineer in Copenhagen with a passion for data and an ambition into data engineering.
You will join a company with roots and heart in music. We’re a team of 50+ developers, engineers, product managers, and more, drawn from every corner of the globe. The common denominator? Music—we live and breathe the stuff.
We’ve launched a completely new platform, extended our product offering and are opening up for new clients. With these moves, our user base and traffic will keep growing rapidly. Simultaneously we are partnering with an increasing amount of DSP’s and leading services in the industry, allowing for more relevant data insights for our clients.

Our data pipeline is powered by Kafka, Cassandra, Docker, Kubernetes and connects to SQL Server and different AWS services.
In this role, you'll be working very hands-on. But you will also have the opportunity to define and impact your own work by actively contributing to our efforts in optimizing and improving our data architecture and business logic. You will join one of our full-stack development teams and work closely with our Data Engineer, while also being a cooperation partner to our DevOps team. Here, you will contribute to the team’s goal of ensuring consistent data for the insights in our core platform.

About the Company
About Linkfire: We’re a passionate team of music techies on a mission to make music consumption easier for fans, labels and artists. The music industry is transforming constantly, the market is fragmented and split across many different platforms and services. Physical sales are going down. Legal downloads and in particular streaming are gaining momentum. The transformation will continue and the years to come will be very interesting. We want to contribute to the transformation by bringing music and fans closer. Not inside music services, but outside where fans and artists engage. Our approach is to index digital music across music services and provide smart links that routes fans directly to the music regardless of their location or which player or platform they use. It’s complex. We make it simple.
What we offer: * The opportunity to create new components and new products for the music industry and ensure over 60+ Million music fans worldwide get the best experience * A truly international spirit, with over 20 different nationalities working together in our office * An open, informal entrepreneurial start-up working environment * Great responsibilities and career possibilities
