Artist Acquisition InternBookmark This
Music Startup [Undisclosed Name]
39 Fifth Avenue
DescriptionFall-Semester NYC Students!
We're a team looking for more members. This fall semester we'll be launching an app to help unsigned, emerging, and unsurfaced musicians break through and build their fan bases. In a new way, users will be able to share songs with their friends and we're excited!
The app's founding team is made up of myself, a recent NYU computer science graduate whose vision and design has helped birth the company, and Walter and Lynda Yetnikoff. Walter brings decades of expertise in the multitudes of mediums for the ever-changing music business. He presided over artists Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel in the 1970's and 80's as CEO of CBS Records and Sony Music Entertainment. His wife Lynda, a musician and writer has brought the artists’ voice to the building of the app.
We're looking to fill a few internship positions that would commence in early September, just about a month before we launch so it will be a very exciting time for you as well.
