About Musiversal 🎷

At Musiversal, our mission is to make music production 10x cheaper and easier to realise the vision of making anyone a music creator.

In 5 years from now, we believe anyone will be a music creator. Music will become a way for anyone to express themselves. We will achieve this by doing to music creation what Instagram did to photography. Making it so easy and cheap that anyone becomes a music creator.

To that end, we're initially serving the semi-professional and professional music creators with a subscription model for accessing unlimited remote shared recording sessions. We will then work our way upstream to serve amateur music creators and finally Mr. and Mrs. Smith who right now only considers music consumption as a possibility, not music creation… yet!

We’re building a world-class remote team to propel Musiversal’s disruption of the music industry. Are you passionate about music and am looking to make a difference in the music world? Musiversal could well be the next step on your journey and we'd love to hear from you.

What we offer

Location: Remote

If you want to work remotely, that's great. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. We know that everyone prefers working in different ways, and different environments, so we’ll leave that one up to you.

  • A once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference in the world through the magic of music 🌍
  • Remote work - live exactly where you want 🗺
  • Yearly Musiversal retreat - A full week of energizing recharging social adventures in an exotic location 🏝
  • Flexible hours - for 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦, 🏄‍♀️, 🎸 or just because. We care about getting the job done. Not what hours you are in front of a screen.
  • Work with a world class team of awarded musicians, founders, ex-VCs, ex-Googlers and ex-Red Bull. 🏆
  • Unrivalled autonomy and ownership by joining Musiversal as an early employee 🏎
  • The opportunity to build things "right from the start" and have a massive impact in the success of musicians and music creators 🚀
  • A competitive full-time salary 💸

You belong here 🌈

  • As long as you’re fun to be around (and got the technical chops of course), we want to work with you; whatever skin-color, sexual orientation, gender, culture or religion (or any other box people find themselves put into) you have
  • At Musiversal everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic self to work which also means you’re encouraged to share as much (or as little) about your personal life as you want
  • We encourage people without degrees to apply: we believe what you've worked on and achieved is way more important (if you could include your portfolio that would be awesome!)
