Closing Date: When we find the right person, so apply as soon as you can ⚡
Early 2018, we released our ‘Podcast Production' web application – Alitu: The Podcast Maker. It's designed to automate podcast production for regular Podcasters and content creators. The user uploads an audio file, or records it right into the app. Then, our system cleans it up, adds branding & transitions, applies user editing and publishes it, mostly automatically.
We also provide a range of other features to allow the user to record themselves, record calls, edit recordings, add music and other tasks required to create a great podcast.
We're looking for an audio developer, or a digital signal processing (DSP) engineer with extensive audio processing experience, to help us refine and grow the way we clean up and process user audio. The aim is to develop processes which help podcasters to sound consistently great, on air. Your job will be to contribute to the processes and machine learning algorithms that run this behind the scenes.
You'll be working on really interesting and complex problems, looking at ways to analyse recordings, classify and deal with them accordingly. You'll be learning from tens of thousands of hours of real-world audio, applying machine learning techniques, complex analysis and other methods to assess how to process every recording in the best possible way.
Examples of our work are:
How we do this isn't set it stone, though, and we want to become the best in the world at processing podcast audio, so you'll be instrumental in defining how we go about that.

Even better if you have experience with any of these, but not essential:
Your mindset is really important to us, too. Values, culture, whatever you call it, it's how you think. Now, this doesn't mean everyone having the same thoughts, beliefs or background. Quite the opposite – we're passionate about bringing in diverse ideas and opinions, from all backgrounds. But your mindset is more about how you approach things like work and communication.
