Roon Labs was founded in January 2015 by a team that started working together ten years earlier. Our first company was Sooloos, which produced an embedded multi-room music server system with storage, audio playback, and touchscreen kiosk devices. Upon its launch in 2006, Sooloos received critical acclaim and became the gold standard in high-end audio systems.
Sooloos was acquired by Meridian Audio in late 2008, where we developed (among other things) a desktop music player for HP that has shipped on 50+ million PCs.
Music is very much in our DNA, so when we spun out of Meridian at the beginning of 2015, we set out to produce a world-class music experience in software. Roon launched as a desktop music app in May 2015 and won product of the year awards from Stereophile magazine, ComputerAudiophile.com, and Digital Audio Review. We have a highly engaged user community which is active on our forums and evangelizes us publicly.
Rather than produce our own hardware, we partner with over 50 audio brands who implement our streaming SDK in their products. The result is a rapidly growing ecosystem of "Roon Ready" audio products, which allows our customers to use Roon as the front end experience for their whole-home audio systems.
Roon is a big project run by a small, focused team that delivers a high quality and well-loved product. We would rather work on a small team of highly capable people than a larger team plagued by management hierarchy and inexperience.
We're looking for an engineer to develop our internal systems, including our web sites, billing mechanisms, membership management, sales tools, support tools, analytics, reporting, and deployment pipeline.
At Roon Labs, we build many of our tools ourselves, using C#, NodeJS, PHP, Ruby, Postgres, and Linux. These custom tools get used (a lot!) and become reliable systems that the whole team knows well, trusts, and depends on. We are looking for an engineer who understands that the tools we use are a key component in the process of getting things done, and that in many cases they enable crucial commercial relationships with partners (both suppliers and customers) as well as end users.
We have a long history of working remotely, with a team distributed across three continents and no central office. This isn't for everyone, but we love the flexibility and lifestyle that it enables. We don't care where you are, what time zone you're in, or if you need to split up your work hours in a non-standard way.
If this sounds like it might be a good fit for you, please get in touch with us.
