Job at Sample Club

Remote / Los Angeles / Vancouver

Full time

Sample Club is looking for a technically experienced lead developer (and potential CTO) with a passion for web3 technology and music. We are an early-stage start-up with a soon-to-be-launched web3 platform that helps musicians create, own, and share their original samples.

Sample Club’s co-founders, based in Los Angeles and Vancouver, have extensive experience in the music industry (having written and produced tracks with over 2 billion streams), as well as extensive music-tech experience, having successfully launched a music licensing platform that they continue to run. They have established deep networks in both music and tech and have previously raised multiple rounds of investment. They also have partnerships in place with elite artists, brands, and innovators across the music industry. As musicians themselves, their guiding ethos for Sample Club is the utilization of web3 technology for genuine artist empowerment.   

Key responsibilities

  • Designing and building out the backend for our app using the Laravel Framework and MySQL
  • Implementing features and page designs for the frontend using VueJS;
  • Working with the UX/UI lead to quickly implement and iterate new designs & features.
  • Shaping the integration of Web3 into our platform’s architecture
  • Working with the team to integrate deep analytics into the platform
  • Automating our dev tools and expanding our AWS infrastructure including EC2, RDS, S3, and Cloudfront as scale problems arise
  • Leading the charge on all technical aspects of the application, including future architecture decisions and building out the technical team


  • Experience building and operating systems that are scalable and available
  • Experience with PHP (or any scripting language), VueJs (or React), and AWS
  • Familiarity with Web3
  • Comfort working as a self starter: operating off high-level instructions and refining requirements when blocked 
  • Excellent written communication ability, both technical and non-technical
  • Knowledge of technological trends to build strategy. Ability to conduct technological analyses and research. 

Flexible Working Hours, Fully Remote Compensation:

As Lead Developer (and CTO candidate) equity % will be generous and commensurate with contribution and experience + a very competitive post-raise salary.
