Associate, Strategy & Business Analytics, AWAL at Kobalt
Los Angeles, CA, US


We are hiring an Associate of Strategy & Business Analytics to join AWAL’s Strategy & Business Development team in LA. This is an exciting opportunity for an individual to drive strategic analysis and provide insight for key business decisions by AWAL’s senior management team and other stakeholders. The Associate will focus on research and analysis for a variety of exciting business initiatives, value a combination of artist, label and strategic partnership deals, and provide general support for strategy and operational projects across AWAL.

Our ideal candidate will need to be comfortable with ambiguity and handling complexity in a fast-paced environment. He/she should be highly proficient with data analytics and possess the ability to analyze large, complex datasets with excellent modelling skills. He/she should also be strong at project management and proactively driving one’s own projects.



Kobalt has revolutionized the music publishing business by putting the creator at the center of everything we do. We are now taking the same approach and transforming the way recording artists release music through AWAL. Whether an artist is looking for the best digital distribution or a truly global campaign, AWAL has become the partner of choice for innovative artists at all stages of their careers. This has created a high-quality path for artists to remain outside of the traditional label system while maintaining ownership of their masters. Our roster of clients includes artists such as Lauv, Rex Orange County, Tom Misch, Steve Lacy, The Wombats, Gus Dapperton, Little Simz and more.

We’re currently over 500 people based across 10 offices and we’re expecting to grow. That’s where you come in.
