Job Title: Coordinator, Global Catalog Marketing

A little bit about our team:

There has never been a more exciting time to work in catalog in the music industry. Thanks to new mobile and digital platforms and renewed interest in physical formats, discovery is unlimited and new generations of fans are listening to the best music ever recorded, regardless of when it was released, on their own terms. Fans listen across genres and decades – a good song is a good song. Digital platforms make the entire history of recorded music available, and our job in catalog is to ensure that our artists are in the best position to be heard.
