Job Description

We are looking for a Content Operations Manager with a proven background working with music content to join a successful London based music business and take responsibility for providing expertise across the full spectrum of the content delivery process.

With an innovative and ever evolving product portfolio and an enviable client base, this company is going from strength to strength. This is a great opportunity to join a company at the top of their game, and play a critical role in ensuring the feasibility and long term success of the music release process..

This is a very broad role, but the core focus will be on managing the music release process, and dealing with any issues that arise from clients or internal teams. This could include working on bids and tenders for prospect clients, or working with existing clients to improve the product offering. You will be the go-to person for all content delivery related requests, so will need to understand the products and their capabilities, and be able to deliver technical solutions.

In terms of the technology itself, a big part of it is music / audio content and metadata, so you will need to be familiar with the various data types and file formats (XML, DDEX, ID3 etc). You will need to quickly build a detailed knowledge of the technology and be able to establish the best way to integrate it with client infrastructures. You will work closely with both technical and sales teams, and will need to be able to offer your opinions and influence decisions. This is a client facing role, so you will be expected to be able to build rapport with customers, understand their requirements and propose appropriate solutions.

To be considered for this role, you must have a track record of commercial experience working as a Content Operations Manager or similar, ideally in a music / content delivery environment. We're looking for a broad technical skill set, client facing experience and exceptional problem solving skills. We're open to considering people from a range of different backgrounds, but we will be looking for evidence of the following;

  • Experience with digital delivery of music / audio content in a production environment.
  • Knowledge of music metadata formats in a commercial context (PRO, digital music services, record label music and metadata production).
  • Experience with XML, DDEX, ID3, metadata embedding, media library management and encoding / transcoding technologies.
  • Experience with multiple / large file transfer technologies.
  • Ideally, knowledge of SQL, FTP, Amazon Web Services and Content Delivery Networks.

In addition we are looking for people with excellent communication skills, the ability to build effective working relationships both internally and externally, and experience proposing and delivering solutions.

You will need to be enthusiastic, confident and keen to learn. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
