Scroll to content

At Epidemic Sound we are reinventing the music industry. Our carefully curated catalog, with over 35,000 tracks, is tailored for storytellers, streaming services, and in-store soundtracks. Countless clients around the world, from broadcasters, production companies, DSPs, and YouTubers rely on our tracks to help them tell their stories. Epidemic Sound’s music is heard in hundreds of millions of online videos daily, across millions of playlist streams, and in thousands of in-store locations. Headquartered in Stockholm, we’re spread across offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Seoul, Hamburg, and Amsterdam. We’re growing fast, have lots of fun, and are taking the music industry with us.

We are now looking for part-time Scouts to join our amazing Music team. 

How you will make an impact

As a Scout for Epidemic Sound, you will help us discover new talent to write and produce new music for our catalogue, and build a diverse roster. In this role you will focus on finding talent within genres from Africa, Asia and the Middle East - both traditional and commercial music. You are expected to work autonomously with the freedom to choose how and when to scout and are compensated on a finder’s fee basis. You will use various channels to pitch Epidemic Sound successfully towards the music creator community and will be the main point of contact for the artists and musicians and own the communication with them until the point of signing. 

You will report to the Head of Music Recruitment and work towards the team’s shared scouting targets.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Scout for artists within various genres from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
  • Scout for talent that will diversify the roster
  • Increase our reach within networks where we are currently not present
  • Pitch our offering and clearly communicate our model and processes within the music creator community
  • Own the communication with the leads until signing
  • Keep up to date with the teams’ targets as well as the company targets.

Who you are

To thrive and succeed in this role, we believe you have previous experience within the music industry working with music from one, or all of the regions, and have an existent network within relevant music creator communities. You potentially have other income streams as the role at Epidemic is part-time and remuneration is based on finder’s fees per talent signed. You are good at working independently and are self-motivated. 

It would also be music to our ears if you are/have: 

  • Understanding of where and how to look for talent and how to approach them
  • An eye and ear for talent with commercial potential
  • Great communication and social skills
  • Fluent in English, verbal and written
  • Based in USA or Sweden
  • Great passion and love for music!
