  • 08/10/16--09:59: Bandcamp Seeks In-House PR
  • Bandcamp is seeking a breathtakingly gifted individual to develop and execute PR strategies for the purposes of 1) attracting every serious music fan (both young and old) with our messages of direct connection and support, and 2) bringing on the top independent and soon-to-be-independent artists and their managers.

    You will challenge the assumption that all music must inevitably be rented from a handful of billion dollar tech companies, and that concern for the artist and their ability to continue making music is somehow a secondary issue.

    You will strive to make Bandcamp a part of every major story written about the state of the music industry.

    When you are not busy promoting the company and our latest product updates, you will look for ways to improve our existing fan and artist-facing messaging, whether it’s on the site, in our emails, or on social media.

    You are comfortable doing all of the above yourself, but are also experienced managing an external PR agency, and (at some point in the future) your own internal team.

    About you:
    You are an amazing writer. People other than your mom frequently ask you why you’re not writing full time. You are obsessive about your copy and would sooner release the cyanide capsule hidden in your false tooth than a press release with an it’s/its error.
    You already know Bandcamp well and have a solid understanding of our business and where we fit in the market, and you absolutely cannot wait to tell our story to a wider audience.
    You are a natural, experienced public speaker, and are comfortable representing Bandcamp in one-on-one briefings with top-tier journalists, or in conference presentations to thousands. You do not get nervous, because you are well prepared and have done it a dozen times already and smoked it the last 11 times.
    You are happy to hear that even though you are more than capable of the aforementioned smoking, you will not be attending a bunch of conferences. Nor will you be sitting on a bunch of panels. Nor will you be working on a bunch of event sponsorships.
    In person, you are engaged, thoughtful, and positive. You are polished but not slick.
    You recognize that Bandcamp has grown to its current position of service-beloved-by-nearly-every-indie-musician-and-label-throughout-the-world while spending zero on marketing and PR, and that this low-key approach is part of our identity.
    You have already read this and this.
    You have six or more years of public relations experience at a major media company.
    You have connections to tech, music tech, and business journalists, but your strongest contacts are at mainstream publications like The New York Times, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, and several others that we would have listed if we knew half as much about this stuff as you.
    Ideally, you already live in, or are willing to relocate to, Oakland. Somewhat less ideally, you already live in, or are willing to relocate to, Brooklyn. Less ideally still, you live anywhere else in the world but are willing to have a work schedule that overlaps Pacific Standard Time by at least 4 hours each day.

    To apply, please send cover letter, resume and writing samples to pr_manager@bandcamp.com
