Ever puzzled what it could be prefer to work with individuals who obsess over music as a lot as you? I did — and I acquired my reply at Viberate.
I by no means imagined I’d be working in music the best way I do immediately. Certain, I all the time dreamt I’d be a rockstar (apart from organizing gigs I even had my very own band, btw), however I didn’t think about music work would contain massive information and a kick-ass workplace.
First issues first. I landed a job at Viberate two years in the past, beginning off as a database administrator. That meant firing up my detail-detecting expertise and making double-sure that each entry in our huge database is appropriate and dependable. No biggie. Since I’m naturally inclined in the direction of working with individuals and aren’t shy about asking LOTS of questions, issues took off in a few months. I moved to the help workforce, and later acquired promoted to the gross sales division.
In the present day, I’m a key account supervisor, which suggests I’m the one who talks to artists and label managers about utilizing our platform and information analytics.
Since we’re speaking ardour, let me inform you about the most effective a part of my job — the individuals I work with.
There’s round 50 individuals (plus two canine and dozens of vegetation) working full time in our Ljubljana workplace — nicely, working remotely, with the pandemic and all. Whereas a minimum of one in 5 is a musician (DJ, guitarist, vocalist, drummer, you title it), each single individual is a complete music fanatic. There’s not a lunch break, teambuilding or after-work drink that doesn’t revolve round discussing the newest albums, hottest concert events, or newly found tracks. A humorousness can also be strongly appreciated, because the workplace wall of quotes and memes can attest to.
It’s not simply the individuals, although. To me, working isn’t just about incomes — it’s about studying. And I’m pleased to have realized a lot in such a short while. I’ve honed my negotiating expertise, realized new applications, found new particulars concerning the vibrant startup world, and gained valuable new views concerning the music enterprise. Even method again at the start, once I was simply dipping my toes into the wonders of knowledge and all of the thrilling tendencies it will possibly predict, I believed I’m part of one thing distinctive, one thing that may change my fellow music artists’ lives for the higher.
