The Mission

BlogTalkRadio is transforming how people experience radio. We want to help people create great podcasts and make money from it. We're building the tools to empower the individual host and the gateway for millions of people to discover them.

Passionate People

We're just 16 people working towards our shared vision. A small team means you can make a big impact. Each of us is passionate about building this vision. Many of host our own shows on BlogTalkRadio and all of us listen every day. We believe in the power of conversation and its ability to connect people.

Engineering at BlogTalkRadio

The engineering team has adopted an Agile practice. It allows us to deliver better software faster while still having fun. We release almost weekly so we continually learn from our users how to take our products to the next level. We follow the Lean mantra of: Think it - Build it - Ship it - Tweak it.

Working remotely

BlogTalkRadio is geographically distributed. All our meetings take place online and our work-related communication uses web based tools. That means that you can work from almost anywhere as long as:

  • You have access to broadband, stable, low-latency Internet, suitable for videoconferencing
  • You have a dedicated, quiet place to work
  • Your workday overlaps New York afternoons (10:00 - 18:00 EST)
  • We have a way to pay you legally wherever you live

Our Test Suite

  • Cucumber
  • Capybara
  • SitePrism
  • Selenium
  • Jenkins for CI builds
