Elephant Music – Sync Manager (NYC, Full-time, Remote)
Elephant Music is expanding to the East Coast! And we’re looking for a brilliant Sync Manager to join our team remotely in the NYC area. We specialize in scoring ads and trailers in the film, TV and game universe. We have a growing catalog of existing music and a busy custom shop producing bespoke compositions.
Who are we?
We’re a small but very hard working team of 6. We’re based in the UK, we’re total music fatantics and we have some interesting hobbies… Our team includes a brewer, a disco DJ, a golfer, an NFL addict and a powerlifter. And we’re looking for a new player to nerd out with us!
Who are you?
You’re a people person! You love to just jump on the phone and have a chat rather than writing long emails. You’re a monotasker – you keep your head down and get the job done with no distractions. You’re resourceful and know where to find relevant info. You ask for help when you need it. You have a compulsion for detail – spelling, grammar, facts, deadlines. You religiously keep a to-do list. If you’re not sure, you ask. You can hear the difference between thriller and horror; anticipation, suspense and tension; uplifting, hopeful and upbeat. You remember everyone’s names. You remember everyone’s birthdays. You know the best place in town to get lunch and the best venue to catch a show. You live and breathe music.
As the Sync Manager you will respond to client briefs and pitch the Elephant, Mammoth, Subtle Energy and Adaptations catalogs, procuring opportunities for our artists and composers. You will manage custom composition and ensure all assets are delivered to spec and within the deadline. You’ll be in constant communication with clients, know what everyone is working on and ensure they are up to date with our new material. You will attend industry events and spend facetime with clients – lunches, dinners, concerts – all the glitz and glamor. You’ll be the face of Elephant Music on the East Coast! You’ll collaborate with the team on gathering references for new releases and conceptualizing new album ideas inspired by latest trends and client requests. You’ll bring in new business and actively find ways in which we can grow and evolve.
Minimum job requirements:
- 2 years of experience in the sync industry
- Proven track record of winning briefs
- Familiarity with musical terms to liaise with composers and clients on custom compositions
- Ability to work from home
