Senior Data Visualization Engineer

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. 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.

You’ll be working on Utopia products built on the Utopia big data platform. We work full-stack including the product infrastructure and user experience. We take a holistic approach to product creation from data to robust backend and customer experience.

The Senior Data Visualization Engineer will work within a small cross-functional design innovation team (The Data Vizioneers) developing novel data visualization solutions and components suitable for multiple Business Unit applications and use-cases across the entire Utopia Platform.

Working with your design, engineering, and product peers, you will be involved with planning, prototyping, and development of a (re)usable, useful, and beautiful dataviz lexicon and component library – helping us achieve our goal of making data visualization a Utopia Music trademark.

Although the role is part of the Engineering function, you will contribute to the collective wisdom and best practice knowledge of the Design function and data visualization frameworks.
