Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin
Our vision is to enrich people’s lives through classical music. Classical music connects people all over the world, transcending culture, race and generations. It inspires and evokes emotions and thoughts in a way no other art form can.
We are a classical music tech company on a mission to build the best streaming service for classical music. A service that really caters to the unique depth and complexity of the genre, with a sophisticated user experience that makes accessing classical music easier than ever before.
We work with all the major and independent record labels and rights holders around the globe and maintain close personal contact with the world’s leading musicians and institutions, from iconic artists to future stars and from great orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic to institutions such as the Lucerne and Verbier Festivals.
IDAGIO is available to music lovers across the globe. Physically we are rooted in Berlin and we consider the German-speaking countries, perceived by many as the cradle of classical music, to be our home base.
As IDAGIO continues to grow, we are looking for a Business Development Director to bring our growth to the next level. The ideal candidate will lead our BizDev team and be responsible for identifying, developing and realising strong and long-lasting partnerships. We want IDAGIO to be available via millions of devices and many different services and platforms, such as Amazon, Apple, and Google, making us the preferred streaming service in the classical music market. Whenever classical music is being played - in your car, at a concert or at someone’s home - IDAGIO should be on people’s minds and, of course, in people’s ears.
