Manager Talent Acquisition (Product, Data, Tech)

Salary Competitive

WELCOME TO UTOPIA

Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate.

Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin.
