Streaming & DSP Specialist

Job description

Do you know the inner workings of streaming platforms such as Spotify, YouTube & Apple Music like the back of your hand? And do you have ideas on how to use that knowledge to improve our presence among all DSPs, as well as maintain and build relationships with key partners at these platforms? Then you might be a fit to become Chillhop Music's new Streaming & DSP Specialist.

About the role
In this role you will be working to maximize the performance of label releases on streaming platforms of all sizes, as well as work on growing our owned brand channels on all of the different DSPs. You will do this in different ways, the first being to work with the internal label and marketing team to optimize our releases and marketing efforts for performance on all platforms, giving advice and insights in terms of what works and where to focus our efforts. Next to that, you will be working on the DSPs themselves by both building and maintaining relationships with key partners and exploring unique opportunities on each platform. Additionally, you'll work on growing our owned channels on these platforms (label profiles, playlists, curator accounts, etc). You will be working both with individuals and tech/data/algorithms, so a strong understanding of both is important.

How you will collaborate within our team
  • You will be working within the release development process to give advice on how to optimize release campaigns for success on DSPs.
  • You will be working with the label team to tap into opportunities that streaming platforms offer such as DJ mixes, unique releases, and curated playlists.
  • You will be working with the marketing & brand team to optimize funnels for streaming success and represent the brand in the best way possible on DSPs.
  • You will be working with the data department to be able to see and visualize data in the best way possible in order to determine focus and spot opportunities.
  • You will be working with management to strategize and brainstorm about direction and focus, as well as discuss results.

What a typical day in this position looks like
You start the workday at home at 10am, opening up your Asana to see the tasks for the day as well as your agenda for any planned meetings and follow-up emails. Once your planning for the day is clear, you spend some time looking over statistics and trends of recent releases and playlist performance on different platforms to determine what worked and what didn't. You then take some time to explore what other labels, platforms and artists are doing on a specific platform and what features are available. Combining our own statistics with the observations on the platform, you come up with some ideas to test in terms of fine-tuning our owned channels.
At 1pm you have lunch and take a walk outside to clear your mind. 
After lunch, you spend some time reading up on general music industry news and catch up on interesting posts from contacts on LinkedIn. An hour later you have some appointments for digital calls with some account managers at DSPs to explore new opportunities. After that, you spend some time pitching upcoming releases to key platforms. Following that, you take some time to check out some releases on the label that are in the works both in terms of sound as well as narrative / concept, to get a feel of what would be good angles in terms of DSP promotions.
You end the day with a label meeting, discussing both upcoming releases as well as debriefing some recent releases. Sharing some opportunities that came in from DSPs, you get the right colleagues involved and create some tasks so they can get to work to make it happen.
