By joining our team, you will be responsible for supporting two Product Managers (PMs) and their roster, through administrative and creative tasks. In addition to providing support, you will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music industry and establish industry contacts.

• Update artist stat sheets, streaming reports, one-sheets, and other key Marketing documents on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
• Organize, update, and manage the storage of single and project specific assets received from other departments and third parties.
• Assist in the conceptualization of marketing ideas and campaigns.
• As new singles, album, videos, and other content are released, you will coordinate with each respective product manager to create and share blasts to the company with all key information, details and links.
• At times, you may be asked to liaise with the Product Manager(s) to generate promotional tool ideas, provide design direction and facilitate the manufacturing of products such as posters, stickers, CDs, merch boxes and more.

About you:
• Background in Music Marketing and previous administrative experience (internship, support role, freelance corporate setting, long term temps, etc.)
• Proficient in Microsoft Office, Photoshop & Mailchimp (or equivalent program).
• Basic graphic design skills
• Experience reading and analyzing data and are good with numbers

It would be music to our ears if you also had:
• A true passion to learn and grow within the music industry
• A network of industry creatives
• Pride in having a professional demeanor at all times

• An eye for design
