Head of Musicology in India

Help us shape the music streaming service of the future!

Want to change the face, and feel, of music streaming? Moodagent makes music truly personal – putting unique recommendations in the hands of the user. Because music should be so much more than just a static library of songs. Join us and help redefine how people listen to music.

We are currently looking for a skilled Head of Musicology to join and form the Music Data team at Moodagent in Mumbai. The team will oversee many cross functions at Moodagent and will be working in close collaboration with the corresponding Music Data team in Copenhagen. 

The primary focus of the team is to work in the intersection between data, music, and listeners’ music experience. As music catalogues are getting increasingly vaster, users need better tools to find relevant songs. Having good data about the music is an essential component for doing this. Therefore, your first and foremost task is to help us generate relevant music data for the Indian market. 

Your tasks include:

  • Advise HQ on how to optimize our data so it best suits Indian music consumption needs

  • Help HQ become aware of how different aspects of music are expressed in the data 

  • Support HQ to generate, apply or retrieve the most relevant data

  • Estimate the coverage and quality of data

  • Create logics for relevant filters for filtering out content

  • Identify the following focus areas: What is most urgent, and what is most relevant? What actions will have the largest effect?

  • Manage a team of musicologists

We are looking for someone with vast music knowledge. But preferably you also have data detective skills, and great knowledge about many different sources for music data. Importantly, you also possess the ability to analyze them, i.e. you can identify biases in data, estimate coverage, and usefulness in relation to our products.

You have:

  • Knowledge about a wide range of musical genres

  • Analytical mindset - preferably both quantitative and qualitative

  • The ability to handle, navigate in and make decisions based on very complex issues

  • Experience working with data/databases

  • Experience curating music, streaming services, or radio is a plus

  • Coding skills are also a plus (or at least you are not scared of Excel or statistics)

Other good traits could be

  • You are creative - preferably with data as well

  • You possess a good team spirit, have a strong work ethic, and an open attitude

  • You have a great passion for music
