About us

Soundtrack Your Brand is a Spotify-backed company that offers music streaming services for businesses. We serve small customers, like the hairdresser around the corner, and large enterprises like McDonald's, Tony & Guy and TAGHeuer.

Playing music in businesses is very different from playing music at home. A business music service is a collaborative, multi-user, multi-location game where all businesses need a vast selection of music that's continually updated. The music itself profoundly influence consumers' experience and behavior, which we have repeatedly proven in our research, and as thought leaders in in-store music research, we try to educate the world about the impact of music.

Our development team consists of 30 very talented, motivated and humble engineers with past experience at companies such as EA, Spotify, Skype, iZettle, Viaplay, Blocket, and Aftonbladet. In total, we are about 90 people working from Birger Jarlsgatan in Stockholm, Seattle, and London.

After building an impressive Nordic customer base in the last couple of years, we have now expanded internationally and are currently live in Europe, America, Asia, and Africa.

We strongly believe that diversity of perspective and experience will render a better workplace for our employees and a better product for our users. We’d like for new employees to contribute to such a diverse workplace.
