UX/Product Designer at Boiler RoomBoiler Room is the world’s leading community of underground music fans. We live-stream DJ sets and live gigs from music hubs such as London, Berlin, New York, Paris, LA and >60 other cities to music lovers all over the world. It started as a webcam taped to a warehouse wall in East London – in five years Boiler Room has grown to become the online home of underground music, and also a complex broadcasting and editorial platform in its own right.
We are currently in the process of building the next generation of Boiler Room apps. We have upwards of a million users interact with our products a month, and that’s not including the hundreds of millions of views that our videos have accumulated on YouTube and Dailymotion. We want to create a completely unique app experience that lives up to the quality of our live shows.
You’ll be working in our new office in East London and you’ll of course be able to go to and invite your friends to the exclusive parties being live-streamed on the site.

- Collaborating with the wider team and other departments
- Working with others to build-up research and test ideas early
