Description

Who We Are:
We are a team of current and former Hollywood film composers who are changing the way content creators interact with music, helping them create better content, faster. Simply, we are democratizing the world of music creation.

What We Do:
Amper is a platform that allows anyone to create professional quality music for their video content, without needing to know anything about music.

You will work directly with the company's technical and non-technical leadership to help build, iterate, and maintain Amper's web assets. You will have the opportunity to take part in high-level strategic and business meetings, will be encouraged to participate in development decision making, and will lay the foundation for a potential long-term position at the company.
