Senior Data Engineer - Back Office

That thing we do

We’re the Operating System for the Music Industry – a platform that pumps up the jam of every play.

We connect all players of the industry to amplify the value of music. Driven by machine learning and copyright expertise, our system pumps neutral data and authoritative knowledge to everyone along the chain. For those who make or use music, we allow them to plug in to our O.S. to ease operations, increase earnings, and get in sync with everyone else.

Who the FAQ are BMAT

BMAT started in 2005 when a group of engineers with a passion for music decided to spin-off from an audio research lab in Barcelona. We’re now over 160 people, spread across Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Lima, Rio de Janeiro, London, Paris, Nairobi, Oslo, Tel-Aviv, Singapore, Tokyo, Manila, Bangkok and Lagos.

We’re a team of pretty decent people who enjoy working with each other. We’re open-minded and well-traveled, coming from all parts of the world. We’ve got rappers, producers, cello players, DJs, and songwriters. The passion for music, the excitement for innovative technology and Barcelona as a backdrop has proven to make a good combination.

Join us from wherever you are on our mission to help make music live forever.

We say there’s a BMAT touch. We believe it has to do with being passionate, obsessive, nice, generous, honest, self-motivated, entrepreneurial, intrepid, crazy, extraordinary, creative, agile, human, friendly, smart, witty, talented, naive, optimistic, surprising, sensual, and nerdy, but not very hipster (unfortunately). Our way of being is always sprinkled with transparency, perseverance, flexibility, open-mindedness and trustworthiness.

About the Project

As part of our Back Office business unit, your responsibilities will be to build, improve and scale our product named Atlas. The solution was developed in response to years of trends in the music industry establishing standards for faster and more efficient distribution for composers’ and publishers’ societies. It uses state of the art technologies for indexing, matching, and searching, and is compliant with the latest data supply formats and tools by CISAC.

Our main development technology is Python along with some of its frameworks, such as Django and Flask. We also use Docker to speed up our developments and deployments and the application code runs on Amazon Web Services. 

We are looking for a resourceful, action-driven and talented coder to help us with the evolution, maintenance and development that a system of this magnitude requires. As part of the engineering team, you will work side by side with the operations team in order to offer the best user experience to our clients and develop creative solutions to satisfy their business needs. Previous experience in the music business is a plus. A strong belief that music can save the world is a must.
