Job Description

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Who are we?

iMusician was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty goal: Tear down the walls erected by the music industry that keep independent artists and labels locked out. 

We believe that music shouldn’t just be a hobby; musicians deserve to be paid. We truly believe that everyone should have equal access to the marketplace -- and we’ve already fought for this to happen. That’s why we strive to make it easy for you to sell, manage, protect, and monetize your music.  When you become more financially sustainable, you make more music. It’s as simple as that.

What we do?

We distribute music from independent artists and labels to hundreds of music  platforms like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer,  Beatport, or YouTube Music.We then collect royalties from publishing and neighbouring rights from collecting societies. Furthermore, we monetize artists’ music on YouTube with Content ID. We strive to become an all-in-one platform to cover every need of independent musicians and labels.

Our Berlin office is the hub for our Global Marketing and Customer Support teams, working with our international team in Zurich, we are growing rapidly.
