We’re a passionate team of music techies on a mission to make music consumption easier for fans, labels, and artists. The music industry is transforming constantly, the market is fragmented and split across many different platforms and services.
Physical sales are going down. Legal downloads and in particular streaming are gaining momentum.
The transformation will continue and the years to come will be very interesting. We want to contribute to the transformation by bringing music and fans closer. Not inside music services, but outside where fans and artists engage. Our approach is to index digital music across music services and provide smart links that route fans directly to the music regardless of their location or which player or platform they use.
It’s complex. We make it simple.
What’s in it for you:
The opportunity to create the must-have product for the music industry and ensure that every month over 150M+ music fans get the best experience
A truly open, informal entrepreneurial spirit, with 4 global locations and over 20 different nationalities
The chance for your work to impact the music consumption of millions of music enthusiasts all over the globe
You'll always learn new things and no two days will be alike.
Sounds good to you? If so, submit your CV/resume and cover letter and we’ll be in touch!
