    Utopia Music

    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. Utopia exists for the love of music. A deep rooted belief that success in innovating an entire industry can only be achieved by looking holistically at the music industry value chain. By leveraging modern technologies we are developing a new music ecosystem. We want to help everyone from PROs to Publishers, Artists to A&R by creating new revenue streams, consolidating data and decluttering the admin. Founded in 2016 with the goal of creating a better world for music, we are an ever growing team that will make this happen. Distributed across Switzerland, UK, Sweden, Finland, USA, Spain, Belgium & Austria and with more locations to come soon we are all focused on one common goal: to create a new industry standard for everyone. WE ARE HIRING, WANNA TO JOIN US? We are always looking for talent. Whether your passion is technology, marketing, business development, people & culture or some cool thing you are really good at, we would love to hear from you. All we ask is that you share our vision of making the music industry a better place and our passion for music, tech + people and inclusive values. WHAT WE OFFER Great atmosphere - we live, love & breathe music & tech! Working in an impact oriented team and inclusive company culture. An experienced team to learn from, with proven track records in multiple startups and big tech companies.
