Job purpose Approach, communicate with, and sign up house-oriented producers and labels to a next-generation online store and discovery website for electronic music. Headquartered in Tokyo, we're on a mission to create innovative and fun new ways to find great music, and an immersive online listening experience that helps producers and labels get paid fairly for their work. We aim to make it possible to search for music with descriptions of how it sounds, how it makes people feel, and the things people imagine while listening. Descriptions are contributed by our community, making possible deep searches such as "glittering synths", "meditative atmosphere", or "deep sea exploration". Check out this track for some examples: https://deepdrive.com/t/kissmenerdygirl-party-edit Producers and labels have full control over music pricing, and keep 85% of sales.
