Digital Rights Manager

Remote (North America, Europe) /
Revenue – Digital Rights /
Full-time
Here at Pex, we have built the largest music and video search engine in the world allowing creators, musicians and rights holders (including labels, music distributors, and music publishers) to increase monetization and understand the usage of their content.

We are building on this legacy of digital content and music/video rights identification and management to develop a market-making product called Attribution Engine. The Attribution Engine (AE) is a three-sided platform 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.

The Team:

Our Digital Rights (DR) Team manages the individual relationships with rightsholders across all media segments - music, film, video, broadcast, sports, and gaming. Responsibilities begin with introducing Attribution Engine to prospective rights holder customers in music (indie labels and distributors), ensuring sign up to the platform, and finally, ensuring labels and distributors are actively using and engaged on the platform. The DR Manager is expected to carry rightsholders through to successful licensing and revenue generation across all participating platforms.
