About Nomad

Live shows have increasingly become the primary source of income for any performing artist. Ticket sales, attendance, and opportunities for young musicians continue to grow as industry giants spend more on concerts than ever before. As a result, concerts are also becoming more and more complex. Nomad is the first to solve this logistics problem by bringing touring artists and music venues onto the same platform. Our collaborative web app enables direct communication and organizes event info in one place. Teams waste less time managing details, and more time focusing on running the best show possible.

Nomad was founded by Washington University in St. Louis classmates Nick Carroll (BS Mechanical Engineering) and MJ Schoen (BS in Computer Science & Graphic Design). Nick has 3+ years experience in the music industry, having toured internationally and coordinated over 200 shows; MJ has 5+ years experience in UX/UI, Web Development, and Graphic Design. The past year was spent iterating on live prototypes, user testing features, and developing a pipeline of top artists, venues, promoters, and talent agents. At this stage, Nomad is positioned to grow quickly and organically with a strong beta release.

What You’ll Do

First and foremost, you’ll own the back-end development of our beta product.

The user interface, design, front-end, and feature set have been well established and documented by the founding team. It will be up to you to execute the back-end to be ready for use by top artists and venues.

Responsibilities

Long term, you will have the opportunity to grow into an executive role where you’ll manage a small team of developers, if such a role is interesting to you. Staying on top of the latest technologies, you will influence the overall direction of the company and pursue features and projects that both interest you and benefit the company.
