Soma Capital Portfolio Jobs

Backend Engineer



Software Engineering
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Wednesday, January 25, 2023
🚀 About Us
Our team is led by Lucy Guo (co-founder of Scale AI) and recently raised $8m+ led by Multicoin Capital. We are based in-person in NYC and Miami.
At Passes, we believe that the age of massive media conglomerates is over. Today’s creator economy allows anyone with an internet connection to share their talents with a niche audience and make a living doing so. But even in this decentralized media landscape, the platforms that creators use to share their content have the power to arbitrarily ban users and destroy their livelihoods.
Our mission is to empower creators to scale their content, own their audiences, and make more money than they could anywhere else.
👀 The Role
We’re hiring a Backend Engineer. You will join a small team to build features that allow creators to upload, polish, store, post, and distribute their content (across multiple media) within our content ecosystem.
