Say Hello to our new Spreaker Headquarters!

Around the end of May our CEO Francesco had been searching for a new, cool office in San Francisco, and finally we can announce that we have a cozy and sweet office at Pier 38.

There’s a window facing the bay, a strictly Italian-only espresso machine, and the determination to watch our States staff grow.

For the time being the office still echoes a bit – it’s a small team right now, but we know we can count on your support to help us along.

So guys, willing to give us a hand? How about in exchange for some true blue Italian espresso? Send a tweet to our CEO @thebask, you’ll often find him walking on the wharf with an iPad in hand!

Poached Code

We know that the World is full of talent, but sometimes it is not that easy to find; and this is particularly the case in Italy, where the developer community is heavily fragmented. So if you’re in the need of a talented (or rockstar) developer, what recruiting tool should you use – since the old fashioned word of mouth is of little use here?

At Spreaker found the answer in Coderloop. Coderloop is an awsome (and very addictive) puzzle game for developers. The rules are simple: you have to solve specific problems – for which a clear requirement specification is given in plain English – writing real code. A large number of programming languages is supported so I’m sure you will find your favorite one there and will be able to start coding immediately.

You asked, we listened. Spreaker application for the iPhone is here!

Listening to your favourite radio shows has never been easier. Spreaker for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is now available for download on the iTunes store. It features an easy to use interface which allows you to listen to the thousands of radio shows and programs available on the website.

In addition, DJs and content creators will be able to check the performance of their shows in real time and keep in touch with their audience wherever they are.

Our goal is to make live audio broadcasting on the Internet available to everyone – says Francesco Baschieri, CEO and co-founder of Spreaker. Nowadays, online radio audience is growing fast and in the near future we will be able to listen to any internet audio stream directly from a variety of devices, including our car stereo. Our new iPhone app goes in the direction of changing the perception of web radios as audio streams which are exclusively enjoyable through personal computers.

The Spreaker iPhone application is available in two languages (English and Italian) and more will follow.
