Jason Allen has been promoted to Senior Director of Infrastructure Operations at digital music distributor TuneCore, which has been owned by the Paris-headquartered Believe since 2015.
In his new role, Allen will continue to manage the DevOps and Database teams, which lead the implementation and delivery of the infrastructure, security, data, and back-end automation processes behind TuneCore’s product.
Allen also manages TuneCore’s internal IT functions, working closely with Believe to coordinate activities for all global employees.
Allen joined TuneCore more than three years ago.
Since then, TuneCore says he has been “integral” in building the company’s infrastructure team, revamped TuneCore’s cloud-based infrastructure and database offerings, implemented new security frameworks and managed disaster recovery and business continuity plans.
Allen also created new monitoring and dashboard solutions that keep TuneCore’s staff aware of the platform’s performance.
Before joining TuneCore, Allen was the Technical Operations and Platform Manager at PBS.
Over the past year, says TuneCore, the company has prioritized the launch of several products.
This includes its TuneCore Rewards and TuneCore Certified features as well as Social Platforms, a service launched in November 2021 that allows artists to distribute their music directly into the music libraries of social media platforms such as TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Reels.
