A little bit about our team:

Firepit Technology is an award-winning central UX/UI and Development team, that supports Warner Music globally.  We partner with artist campaign strategy teams in the Labels across the world, creating websites, fan activations integrating with APIs (Spotify, YouTube, Twitter, etc), web games, apps, 3D, AR Filters/Lenses, and many other types of fan experience output.  We have been privileged to deliver for artists such as Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Foals, Rita Ora, Slipknot, Laura Mvula, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd, to name just a handful.  As well as our global remit supporting Labels, we also collaborate with colleagues in Business Development, working with the relevant tech platform/startup partners they invest in and license. We also work closely with our colleagues in the CRM/Audience team.

Why this could be your next big break:

  • You'll have around 18months to 2years work experience, looking for a creative and varied environment

Here you'll get to:

  • Work primarily with JavaScript, although occasional LAMP will be required
