Marketing – Product Marketing /
Full-time
Here at Pex, we have built the largest audio-visual search engine in the world allowing creators, musicians and rightsholders to understand the usage of their content and help them to earn more while exposing their content to wider audiences.

We are building on this legacy of digital content identification and management to develop a market-making product we call the Attribution Engine. The Attribution Engine is a three-sided marketplace bringing together rightsholders, platforms and creators to simplify the existing licensing process by making ownership information more transparent and readily available; bringing scale and consistency to the licensing process; and ensuring that copyright disputes are resolved quickly and cost-effectively. We believe that the successful launch of this product will position Pex to become the Visa of Digital Rights. 

We are looking for a PR Manager to take our external communications and brand awareness to new levels. It’s time everyone knows Pex and how we are changing digital content creation for the better! This is a very exciting and crucial time for the company, and we need an experienced storyteller to get our message out, communicate our mission and vision, and make Pex the go-to leader for digital rights and licensing. If you excel at creating unique and compelling content, can put together events that get people talking, and can hone messaging for multiple different audiences, we’d love to meet you.
