Job Description

InFiné is looking for a Junior International Press Officer

The position consists primarily of assisting InFiné's Berlin office in promoting the label's releases and events worldwide.

Founded in 2006, the label has released 50 albums and more than 100 singles across various musical genres. The daily challenge is to cultivate diversity and musical audacity by multiplying "know-how" whatever may be the musical genre of the project. 

We favour a human and family approach to artistic development and discovery.  Within our catalogue you can find albums by established artists such as Rone, Carl Craig, or Murcof but also many young talents such as Deena Abdelwahed, Leonie Pernet, Frieder Nagel, and Misha Blanos. The label has always been keen to highlight the introduction and development of its artists in new media as well as in traditional media.
