Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate. While the tech world has moved into the future, the music industry continues to be shaped by inefficient systems of the past. At Utopia we believe there is a better way. Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin. Unlocking the industry’s full potential by unifying it all in one truly holistic space. Some might call that a Utopia.
Funnily enough, so do we. Welcome to Utopia. Where music lives.
WHAT UTOPIANS DO
The open secret is that the music industry is struggling with the very basics of music accounting: What was played, when and where? Who should get paid and how much?
Utopia Music is bridging the data gap by connecting global consumption, accurate metadata, and fast payments to an industry-wide trust platform. Our goal is to unlock creative value and enable Fair Pay For Every Play to make a better world for Music. The solutions we offer do not threaten to usurp the role of industry incumbents - it is about bringing transparency in the industry and supporting efficient royalty collection for all.
As a Business Analyst in the Corporate Development team at Utopia Music your everyday tasks will vary greatly. The Corporate Development team sits at the heart of Utopia Music and it is our job to ensure that all our great business units are aligned with each other and get the help they need to excel. This is done through analyzing and understanding the music industry and relating this to Utopia Music’s offerings to ensure that we are on track, or evaluate opportunities for growth and improvement.
Improvement and growth can be achieved through either a focused effort internally, or through acquisitions of assets or companies - both are the responsibility of the strategy team to identify. Thus, as a Business Analyst, it is important to be a fast learner, think creatively (we are, after all, changing an entire industry!), be meticulous, and have a keen eye for numbers.

☕️ Breakfast every morning
Every morning we gather around the bar for breakfast. It is of course voluntary but the coffee is great.
👾 A bunch of nerds
We love what we do and we do what we love. So there will be a lot of interesting discussions going on about pretty much anything connected to music or tech and a lot of Star Wars references to acompany those.
🏰 A little here and a little there
We love to work together. Where exactly that is at the moment is less important.
Work @ Utopia
Do you like to work in teams with a lot of individual responsibility? Yes, we know it sound cliché but this is also how it actually is.
Every morning after breakfast we gather in our teams to plan the day, assign tasks to kickstart the days. Agile, fast and inventive is how we like it. That also gives us room to pair up or hold a workshop if we need help in finding the best solution.
A helping hand and a good coffee might just be what we need to get things done.
