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 rightsholders, platforms, and creators together 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.

Our Infrastructure team spans the globe and is fully remote while maintaining a strong identity and bond.  We come from various backgrounds and origins but we all have a few things in common: we love - challenging and dynamic problems,  automating everything, observability, reliability, accountability and spreading the SRE way.  We strive to work ourselves out of the job, knowing that it is never really an attainable goal.  We share and avoid hoarding information.  We strive to create an environment where all team members are empowered to take ownership, experiment and learn from their mistakes.
