Muse Group

Muse Group empowers music makers. We create the world’s most popular apps for playing, recording, and composing music.

Through our innovative learning tools, expansive music catalogs, and free open-source software, we make it easier for millions of people — from beginners to experienced musicians — to be creative every day.

Our talented team of music lovers works across the globe, from Limassol to Seoul and Boston to Berlin. We’re an ambitious company with the drive and culture of a startup, with many more exciting Muse Group developments to come.

Audacity, a part of our family of products, is a free and open-source digital audio editor and recording application. Available for Windows, macOS, Linux, and other Unix-like operating systems, it is the world’s most popular audio editing software, with over 111 million downloads from FossHub since March 2015.

You will not merely add features. You will collaborate with software architects.

You will exchange code reviews with all other developers on the team to build a broad understanding of the application. You may also assist with development of in-program features for automated functional testing.
