Stem exists to help artists navigate the business behind their music. We do this by reducing complexity, creating clarity, and providing more opportunities to exercise full control. The artists on our platform decide for themselves how their hard-earned dollars flow–whether through splits to their collaborators or by scaling their earnings to invest in their futures with no strings attached.
This role is full-time and fully remote, with occasional optional get-togethers in Los Angeles for which we cover travel/lodging for out-of-town employees.
