About POP

Since 2016 we’ve been working on making the artist to fan relationship more direct. As newsfeeds are getting more and more crowded it’s harder for anyone to reach their audience. Algorithms filter 98% of updates and engagement is at an all time low.

But via chat apps like Messenger it’s possible to reach your audience directly. When you go direct there are no filters, algorithms, or competing content and you can tell interactive stories in a whole new way.

The core of our product is built around short stories we call ‘Flows’. Using our simple chat editor, anyone can write fun and interactive Flows they can send to their audience. With chat being so direct, our clients often see open rates above 90%.

Why this position?

POP is looking for a medior/senior front-end developer to help build a platform for artists to connect with their fans. If you love front-end development, have a keen eye for performance and want to work within the music industry, then we have a home for you at POP!

The platform consists of a CMS through which artists can send relevant notifications to fans through the Facebook Messenger platform and a CRM, which collects essential fan data for artists.
