Job Title: Manager, A&R/Remixes
A little bit about our team:
As an A&R Staff, we work closely together to help our artists make and release the best music possible. We pride ourselves on being a tightknit team who have strong relationships within the music industry and with one another to not only achieve our goals, but to go above and beyond for the artists on our roster. Our A&R team facilitates environments for their signed roster artists to record music and help with song repertoire for their projects. When key songs for an artists’ project are determined, an important aspect of the song campaign is having remixes. This role will have a direct impact on all of the members of our A&R team. Remixes are an important part of an artists’ campaign that assist in magnifying a songs potential not only sonically but also from a marketing prospective. Strong Remix packages help to promote and grow a song and project to different audiences in different places both domestically and all around the globe.
Why this could be your next big break:
This employee will have the opportunity to discover new remix artists and build on relationships with established remix artists.

They will be the point person for the entire A&R staff for remixes. They will get to work with set budgets to create the packages and also liaise with the marketing staff once remix packages are set to make sure each remix receives the marketing look intended. Strong remixes can help turn a song into a hit.
