Serato is one of the world leaders in audio software for professional DJs and musicians. World renowned artists such as Fatboy Slim, DJ Snake, Major Lazer and Mix Master Mike (of the Beastie Boys) love our products and perform with them on a regular basis.

This is a unique role, working with our hardware partners to integrate their hardware into the Serato applications. This involves leveraging and extending our custom MIDI and audio mapping layer and developing new features to bring new DJ mixers, controllers, platters and other devices to life. There is also a focus on extending and improving our tools, processes, infrastructure and connectivity layers within the application to enhance our ability to deliver. Another key part of the role is troubleshooting, collaborating with the team, architects and partners to understand and resolve the issues that come with developing new hardware integrations. If you're the kind of person that loves the immediate and tactile rewards of making hardware perform then this is the opportunity you have been looking for.

A passion for music and DJ is also desirable but not required.

Based in central Auckland, we are always on the look-out for senior developers who bring a wealth of experience with them. A software development role within Serato involves working in a small agile team to help shape and implement our core products. We are a strong, tight-knit group of talented and passionate folk who love delivering best in class software and having a lot of fun in the process.

To be successful in this role, you should be able to demonstrate:

  • Strong programming knowledge - ideally including C++
  • Commercial experience with multi-threaded, high performance, application development
  • Great communication skills, both internally and with external partners
  • A degree in computer science or related field

It would be great if you also have one or more of these:

  • Experience working with hardware and firmware
  • Experience in audio-visual application programming
  • Cross-platform application development with Windows and OSX. Any experience using 3rd party frameworks such as Qt, Boost would be beneficial
  • UI development and/or Open GL experience
  • Experience with DSP
  • Experience as a musician, producer or DJ

At Serato our culture is highly prized and so finding someone who will integrate well with the team and company, sharing our values of having fun whilst working hard and continually improving, is more important than ticking all the boxes. If you're experienced, love software and music and want to work in a high performing team at a company with a great culture this could be the role for you.
