AWAL – Digital Supply Chain Manager (US)

We’re looking for an experienced Digital Supply Chain Manager to join AWAL’s Global Digital Operations team.

Based in our New York office, this role will be responsible for ensuring the quality and success of AWAL’s release deliveries, troubleshooting supply chain issues, managing our operational relationships with key North American partners, and handling rights management at Video/UGC platforms (YouTube, VEVO, Facebook & SoundCloud).

This role will also work closely with our Release Management, Label Management and Digital Accounts teams to ensure operational best practice is understood and enacted across the business. Some travel will be required for this role, particularly to our London office as this is the global hub for AWAL’s Operations teams.


Kobalt has revolutionized the music publishing business by putting the creator at the center of everything we do. We are now taking the same approach and transforming the way recording artists release music through our AWAL services.

Whether an artist is looking for the best digital distribution or a truly global campaign, AWAL has become the partner of choice for innovative artists at all stages of their careers.

This has created a high-quality path for artists to remain outside of the traditional label system while maintaining ownership of their masters. The leading artists who have already chosen AWAL includes Lauv, Nick Cave, Deadmau5, Die Antwoord, Verite, Tom Misch, Bruno Major and Rex Orange County.

Kobalt is currently over 600 people based across 10 offices and we’re continuing to grow. That’s where you come in.
