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 lead multiple teams of individual contributors and managers responsible for building products for a specific domain of the Utopia Platform. You’re responsible for the outcomes, quality of the tech and the people and teams you manage. Reporting to the Engineering Leader of the Utopia Platform business unit.
We believe in the modern approach to building tech products with empowered cross-functional product teams, which include software engineering, product management, data and design. Together with the business unit leadership team, you lead the organization to innovate and create incredible products changing the music industry for the better.
It’s all about the outcomes in Utopia. Here are some basic responsibilities for an engineering leader, but you will shape them to match your strengths to achieve the outcomes we’re after.
We expect you to care about people and be passionate about building great products and winning teams. The years of experience are just a guidance - what counts is what you have achieved and how.
