Licensing Assistant Wixen Music Calabasas

Posted: Oct 08, 2018


Job Description

Job Summary

Wixen Music Publishing, Inc. in Calabasas, CA seeks to add an entry-level, full-time licensing assistant to its licensing/copyright department.

Who we’re looking for

The ideal candidate has no or limited experience in the music business and is looking to get a solid footing in the music business and grow with us. Schooling in music industry studies and/or playing an instrument are pluses, but are not required.

Success in this position requires a strong work ethic, attention to detail, ability to work with others and follow instructions, extreme organizational skills (proficiency in Excel is a major plus!), able to keep calm under pressure, a deep desire to learn, and the ability to create and nurture lasting relationships with our TV, film, advertising agency, and record label licensees.

If you’ve always wanted to be a music supervisor, great! But this IS NOT the job for you - this is not a “creative” position. On the other hand, if you’re tired of hearing horror stories about songwriters getting ripped off or struggling to make a living and want to go to bat for them, let’s talk, we have just the opening for you.

What you’d do

·         Register songs with the PROs, the copyright office, our sub-publishers, and record labels.

·         Confirm splits and resolve counterclaims.

·         Interact with our TV/film studio, video game company, advertising agency, record label, and independent recording artist licensees.

·         Negotiate, draft, and ensure that licenses for said requests are signed and paid in a timely fashion.

·         Provide licensing and registration support for client managers.

Why you want to work here

·         Competitive salary

·         Health insurance and optional dental insurance plans

·         Two weeks paid vacation

·         An additional week of paid vacation between Christmas and New Years upon completion of 16 hours of community service at a charity/non-profit of your choosing (within reason)

·         Profit sharing plan

·         A dynamic, varied workday. We believe our clients are best served when they have a single point person who is involved in all aspects of their music publishing rights.

·         You’ll gain a broad understanding of the music business as a whole, and a deep understanding of the nuances of music publishing.

·         A casual office environment in a small, independent, family owned and run, writer-friendly publishing company proudly representing some of the finest music written in the last 90 years.

·         Healthy work-life balance. We get an early start at 7:30am but call it a day at 4pm so we can spend time with our friends and family.

Enough already, how do I apply?

·         What’s your favorite App? Why do you love it so much and how does it enrich your life? Tell us as part of your cover letter. No phone calls please.   Send letter and resume to licensing@wixenmusic.com.

Job Type: Full-time

Salary: $25,000.00 to $35,000.00 /year
