Job Description

About BMAT 

BMAT started in 2005 when a group of engineers with a passion for music decided to spin-off from an audio research lab in Barcelona. The company started with an idea – to index all the music in the world – and a mission – to better the music eco-system – and a team of nerds eager to learn how to build a successful business. Today the company has grown to more than a hundred people - spread across Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Lima, São Paulo, London, Paris, Oslo, Tel-Aviv, Johannesburg, Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul - that team up to deliver daily 1 million identifications and 3 billion matches to our partners from all over the music industry.

Our Culture 

We love music. It makes our lives a zillion times better. And we want to give something back to her (yes, to us music is a lady). Make her life easier and her future brighter. We apply our scientific, data-infused brains to tell everyone what music has been played – so that creators get the recognition they deserve. We hear everything everywhere and tell everyone who wants to know. ‘What plays around will come back around’ we say. We believe by helping this happen we can make a positive change in the music ecosystem and enjoy talent for another million years.

We are a team of pretty decent people who enjoy working with each other. We’re open-minded and well-traveled, coming from all parts of the world. We like coffee, tea, chai, and mate all the same. We’ve got rappers, producers, cello players, DJs, and songwriters. The passion for music, the excitement for technology and Barcelona as a backdrop has proven to make a good combination. We say there is a BMAT touch. We believe it has to do with being passionate, obsessive, nice, generous, honest, self-motivated, entrepreneurial, intrepid, crazy, extraordinary, creative, agile, human, friendly, smart, witty, talented, naive, optimistic, surprising, sensual, and nerdy, but not very hipster (unfortunately). 

Job Summary

In our Recordings team at BMAT, we are responsible for recording more than 7000 channels worldwide in order to feed our real time music monitoring platform (Vericast). To do so, we have deployed more than 250 recording servers all over the world to get even the most remote regional channel. As the platform keeps growing we need to tackle new challenges and evolve the systems to ensure top-notch performance and quality.  

Your responsibilities will be to help us design, develop and maintain the evolution of the current system that will push the recording team to the next level.. 

It is a challenging and ambitious project surrounded by a young and enthusiastic team.

What You Will Be Doing

We are looking for a problem-solving team player who is capable of learning about new technologies and share the passion the same way as we do. 

You will be responsible for designing, developing and maintaining a brand new platform to deal with all the recording process -catching multiple TV and Radio signals, process and upload them to our centralized platform, process all the data (task queue involved) and distribute the results-.

If you are an open-minded person who thinks ahead and considers the bigger picture don’t hesitate to apply!
