Whynow Music – Senior E-Commerce Manager (UK)


whynow inhabits a unique position as a media brand, content producer and merchandise company. We own an engaged audience (35+ million monthly visits) across our magazines, websites and Youtube channels. We also produce documentaries, TV shows, podcasts and music videos for the likes of Sky, HBO, BBC and BMG.

whynow Music is our merchandise arm and we work with some of the biggest music artists in the world including Mick Jagger, Tina Turner and The Kinks to deliver bespoke merchandise campaigns from conception through to delivery.


We are looking for a senior ecommerce manager to help us build, maintain and support ecommerce for our music clients whilst also helping drive forward our media brand marketplace stores for Rock Sound, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Prog, Louder and Great Big Story.

We need someone who can manage multiple projects and handle a wide range of tasks and deadlines. Your communication and organisation skills will be excellent and you should be comfortable liaising with internal teams, artist teams, record labels, magazine editorial teams and other industry partners including warehouses and printers.

You should have a keen eye for detail and a desire to ensure that our ecommerce stores are performing at the highest standard, represent our brilliant roster and are an enjoyable shopping experience for music fans. Experience of the music industry and understanding of the media landscape would be preferable but not essential.

Our merchandise arm is one year old and we are continuing to grow and add artists to our roster, making it a fantastic time to join, help build a team, implement your own processes and put your ideas and experience to use.

We’re based in central London right by Oxford Circus and we work from the office Mon to Thurs.
