Their product is very much a market leading piece of technology that has allowed musicians to track the usage through various channels such as Spotify, YouTube, Vevo etc. To date they utilised a contractor to deliver lots of quick wins which paved the way for the need for a Head of design.

The Role as User Experience Designer

The big project in the pipeline is to deliver a complete overhaul of the main product as there have only been quick fixes to the UI and refined some functionality.
