About Linkfire: 

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 we offer: 

  • Key role in the finance department, professional challenges, significant responsibilities and the opportunity to continue on building your personal career

  • The opportunity to work in one of the fastest-growing music tech companies in the world

  • An open, informal entrepreneurial startup working environment

  • An awesome, international office with colleagues from 20+ different nationalities

  • Flexible working hours and a healthy work-life balance
