Soundstripe – Music Streaming and Distribution Admin Manager (Remote) (US)

Soundstripe provides unparalleled music, video, and SFX stock content for creators of all kinds. Uniquely equipped for the online age, our company is driven by a subscription model that lets content creators pay a fee for usage of the music and media in Soundstripe’s catalog, with a la carte licenses also available. This approach is inspired by Soundstripe’s mission to “Keep Creatives Creating,” ensuring creators don’t get slowed down by complex copyright issues while elevating the entire creator ecosystem. In our first five years, we’ve won awards for our premium stock content, our clever brand marketing, and our humanistic company culture. Our team is made up of humble, inspiring brand builders whose fingerprints are all over our success story.

Soundstripe is a remote-first company and the team is geographically distributed with a few opportunities for in-person connections each year. They collaborate virtually via Slack and Zoom and never miss a beat.
