Kobalt was founded in 2000 with a mission: Make the music industry fairer and rewarding for creators.
We wanted to give creators, our artists, songwriters, musicians, labels and publishers, the freedom and transparency they needed to build their careers.
Today, Kobalt does exactly that. Our music technology services including Publishing, Recordings, Synchronization and the world’s first Global Digital Collection Society are trusted by some of the world’s greatest artists, and we represent more than 40% of the top 100 songs and albums in the U.S. and U.K. And it’s not just the big names we help. Our open platform allows new and upcoming artists and writers all over the world to get access to invaluable insights that help boost their musical careers.
Having undergone difficult times in the late 90s due to piracy, the music industry resurged due to streaming and curated online services and is now on a path of explosive growth as music becomes more ubiquitous than ever and distributed all over the world. Furthermore, data is today generated and collected at an unprecedented rate, through social media, marketing and other digital platforms.
As leaders in music technology, we are riding a rapid growth wave and scaling our systems and products to cope with current and future demand, while also building new innovative products that not only enable better decision making, increased efficiency but also help maximise revenue for creators.
As a Senior Engineering Manager at Kobalt Music, you will help shape the organisation and have real impact on the future of music.
You will support in building diverse, cross-functional, highly efficient and highly-skilled engineering teams aligned to the AWAL business unit. You will be passionate about empowering people and creating autonomous teams. As you build teams around you, you’ll care deeply about the careers of the engineers you manage and support them on their learning journey and in meeting their full potential.
You will also not lose track of technology and get involved hands-on regularly and ensure engineering excellence in all we do. You will be pragmatic about technologies, have a natural curiosity and will be a keen contributor to open source projects – if it already exists, use it.
Finally, you’ll demonstrate great drive in continuing to build an inclusive culture and in having a strong focus on our helping our customers succeed.
