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 Producer who will be responsible for running music productions from start to finish. Whether it’s producing sound for an advertising campaign, a world-class sonic brand, broadcast branding package, or musical activation, you will turn ideas into musical realities.
You will be part of the Production department, reporting to the Music Production Director. You will work independently and as part of a team. Those you work with internally will vary from Producers and Account Managers to Creative Strategists, both in London and other offices worldwide.
Depending on the project, you will receive briefs or you will design the brief yourself. You will source the right talent (composers, sound designers, musicians and vocalists) and brief them to produce original music and sound design. Conversely, projects that require commercial music or talent will see you collaborate with rights holders or artist management to source and licence existing commercial music or commercial talent.
You’re a supernova of energy, passion and enthusiasm for music and life in general. You are obsessed with understanding the needs and possibilities of a project and have enviable organisation skills that allow you to command multiple projects concurrently. You will be as adept with a creative vision as you are with handling the project management, financial, contractual and legal side.
You have a solid set of personal industry contacts (creative agency producers, directors, creatives etc.) and will nurture and build that network with MassiveMusic to attract creative and business opportunities. You get a buzz off the industry and – when the world allows – you will be keen to attend Massive events and other industry-related events and get-togethers. You will also have an established network of talent that you could call on for projects at MassiveMusic, as well as actively discover and nurture new talent.
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.
Skills and Requirements
- 3+ years of experience in bespoke music production for advertising or branding (or equivalent industry experience in a music production or project management role)
- Experience in music supervision, sourcing and licensing music from labels/publishers
- You are comfortable navigating and working within a DAW (Logic, Ableton, etc.) to edit and prepare audio for client deliveries
- Music production and video editing skills? That’s your daily bread
- You have knowledge of the sonic branding process and its applications
- You have a thorough understanding of the advertising industry
- You have the proven ability to maintain and develop client relationships
- You’re a – excusez le cliché – team player who can work independently
- You’re outgoing and have good communication skills
- You don’t mind being challenged by your teams and clients
- You’re a dab hand at translating client ideas into musical terms
- Naturally, you have music in your veins.
Full time. What do you get in return? Inspiration, knowledge, career development and spiritual fulfilment but if you insist on monetary reward too, then we can talk about our competitive financial package. Oh, and, how could we forget, you get an international bunch of remarkable musically infused individuals to work with.
