Full Stack Software Engineer

Songtrust is seeking Full Stack Software Engineers to join us in solving one of the biggest problems facing songwriters in the new music business: getting paid.

Our industry-leading technology helps songwriters, artists, managers, labels, and publishers simplify music rights management including the administration of music publishing assets (royalty collection), performing rights, and digital licensing.   


Existing systems of royalty collection around the world are antiquated and inefficient. Songtrust is finally bringing real engineering talent and ingenuity to a part of the music industry that has been notoriously slow in adapting to innovation. Our software platform enables creators at all levels to recover their royalties directly from over 90 countries and from more than 20,000 unique income sources worldwide.
