Thematic is a platform marketplace that connects media creators with music artists. We are a two sided marketplace where content creators and music artists come together and support each other. You'll enjoy working here if you love music and are excited to work on a platform that empowers artists and creators. We are passionate about what we do and really believe in influence as a form of currency. You'll be at the forefront of learning how a startup operates in today's digital world and at the intersection of influencers, music artists, and technology. What is the problem we're trying to solve? For creators we are saving them precious time when looking for music to use in their videos and allowing them to monetize their content on YouTube while using great music that is not stock. For artists we are helping to promote their music to a broader audience via the YouTube creators influence and driving conversions to grow their social presence via these collaborations. Artists need to get their music heard in an era of so much noise and 40k plus new songs on Spotify every day and creators need a faster solution to provide great music and not be demonetized.

In order to avoid potential disqualification, candidates should avoid reaching out to Thematic and apply only through this application. Paragon One is managing the selection and onboarding of applicants.
