Vacancy: Full-time (40 hours)
We are MassiveMusic, one of the leading music agencies in the world with offices in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. Our mission? To help brands find their voice and tell their story through music. We produce and compose for the advertising, broadcast branding and interactive worlds, but also develop music strategies for global brands, provide music search and licensing services, create innovative activations, scout new talent – and throw a mean party every once in a while.
Our passion for music has not only ensured an award-winning reputation but makes it so much easier to jump out of bed each morning. MassiveMusic was founded in Amsterdam in 2000: since then we have proudly sprinkled our melodic magic on many of the world’s biggest brands. www.massivemusic.com
Our London office is on the lookout for a Junior Producer to join our forces in the Production department. Here you will assist the team to ensure the smooth and professional project management of music/sound projects for advertising, sonic branding, broadcast packages and musical activations.
Reporting to the Music Production Director, you will maintain knowledge of all projects so that you can support on a number of active projects concurrently.
You will be responsible for project-related administration, including project set up on our systems, preparing documents and contracts, organising and labeling files, tagging and cataloguing music files, invoicing and project finalisation. You will also be researching, sourcing from rights holders or artist management, contributing to commercial music and catalogue searches, video editing, and preparing and editing audio in the DAW.
You will actively source new composers, vocalists and instrumentalists. When additional support is needed, you will be booking, briefing and giving creative guidance to the talent.
You will nurture and build on your existing network within the advertising and music industries, attending meetings to discuss projects or to attract new creative and business opportunities. You get a buzz off the industry and – when the world allows – you will be keen to attend Massive and other industry-related events.
You’re a supernova of energy, passion and enthusiasm for music and life in general. You have enviable time management skills that allow you to handle any major or minor chord that may come your way.
People enjoy working with you because you bring fresh ideas to the table and always have a proactive solution to any challenge. You are also fun to have around, which is great because all work and no play isn’t our thang. You are always one step ahead of the game: that’s why your friends and frenemies look to you for inspiration.

Full time. What do you get in return?
