Become a Co-founder in Chainstream!


This is a unique opportunity to join our team as a co-founder of a unique revolutionary music service called Chainstream. It is a brand-new music platform helping artists and musicians to live off their music while creating a more exciting and social way for the listener to consume music.

 

As a co-founder, together with the founder, you will be part of a truly unique journey from the very start. Chainstream as a business has been validated by early-stage incubator Inkubera in Örebro, Sweden, is seeking seed/angel funding at the moment, and is dependent on finding a technology co-founder to proceed with confidence to the next stage.


The originator is looking for a partner to manage the build of the technology platform for Chainstream through MVP to full scale. Definitely, coding is meritorious – but your leadership, attitude to new things, and your experience as a technologist are of more value than extensive coding abilities.

Who are we looking for?

  • A DIY-er that looks for satisfaction in learning new things and trying old things in new ways.

  • Open-minded, humble, and a great communicator.

  • An inspirational leader that through self-confidence acts with integrity.

  • A pragmatist i.e. finds ways forward in the overlap between practical realities and theory

 

The candidate’s experience likely contains most of these:


  • 10-15 years of IT / technology delivery of front-, middle- and backend, data, and analysis platforms as well as service infrastructures (”cloud”)

  • Multi-skilled from software development, architecture, on-offshore style deliveries, etc.

  • Can clearly demonstrate leadership abilities

  • Sourcing experience

​Additionally, the entrepreneurial lifestyle is something that the candidate is ready for or lives in today, i.e. varied hours, quick changes of pace and direction, and thrives in an uncertain world.

 

Furthermore, the candidate needs a level of financial stability and can manage without a stable salary for some time during 2021 or has other sources of income, as the business is being set up and initial funding secured. As part of the total remuneration package, shares in the business will be offered.


Please get in touch if you or someone you know might be interested.

Chainstream

Chainstream is a brand new music platform helping musicians to live off their music while creating a new and exciting way for the listeners to consume music. By gathering everything on one platform, we create a creative environment where the musician can focus more on creating music and less on financial anxiety. The big problem with today's music industry is that you need, for the majority, unreachable amounts of streams on the different streaming services to make a living out of it. To earn a salary of 2 500 €, you need to gain over 650 000 streams per month. Imagine you run a business and you want 650 000 people to visit your website. To make that possible, you will most definitely need more than 2 500 € in the marketing budget. This is a serious social problem that hurts the majority of musicians. The business model is broken and it's causing damage to the whole music industry. Covid19 and the cancellation of concerts have made it clearer than ever that we need a solution to this problem. Chainstream is essentially a music streaming service where you as a listener listens to music, but what makes us different is our gamification of the process. We have created a point system for the listener. The point gathers up to a reward for your music consumption, we call it a crate. The purpose of the crate is to influence how the listener consumes music which helps us give back more to the artist and the other creators. The idea of Chainstream is to build an ecosystem where everyone thrives by participating. We want to create a win-win-win situation for everyone involved. Let's make Chainstream mainstream!
