WELCOME TO UTOPIA
Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate. While the tech world has moved into the future, the music industry continues to be shaped by inefficient systems of the past. At Utopia we believe there is a better way. Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin. Unlocking the industry’s full potential by unifying it all in one truly holistic space. Some might call that a Utopia.
Funnily enough, so do we. Welcome to Utopia. Where music lives.
WHAT UTOPIANS DO
The open secret is that the music industry is struggling with the very basics of music accounting: What was played, when and where? Who should get paid and how much?
Utopia Music is bridging the data gap by connecting global consumption, accurate metadata, and fast payments to an industry-wide trust platform. Our goal is to unlock creative value and enable Fair Pay For Every Play to make a better world for Music. The solutions we offer do not threaten to usurp the role of industry incumbents - it is about bringing transparency in the industry and supporting efficient royalty collection for all.
At Utopia we ingest millions and millions of royalty data and radio/DSP play and consumption data daily and face the challenge of assigning it to the correct attribution.
We are looking for people with expertise in Audio Fingerprinting, ideally with experience in industry on real-world large-scale solutions.
In this role we want you to research, explore and build an in-house fingerprinting solution that can cope with these challenges and match radio airplay data (audio) to a reference catalog of about 100 M songs. You will be working at the core Utopia platform as part of an engineering & data team in tight collaboration with other platform teams who take care about ingestion of reporting data, audio and metadata matching. The solution shall be embedded into this pipeline of data processing. We also have in-house Devops, ML-ops and other Data Science teams who work on semantic audio analysis who you can work with. The mission is to build and provide a scalable in-house audio fingerprinting solution.
