-A self-driven problem solver and leader with an entrepreneurial spirit
-Collaborative; must work well with a remote team initially during COVID-19.

-An excitement to learn. The marketing, social and paid landscape is constantly changing. You need to have a finger on the pulse of the industry and digital space and be excited to learn about its evolution. Do you think about ways you can change the industry on the weekend?
-Passionate about the future of music in terms of artist development and deal structures
-In touch with your spirit animal
-Willing to take calls and respond to emails outside of office hours - flexibility is key
-Looking to eventually take the job of one of our four founding partners

Pack Records was forged by four artist managers with an artist first mentality and an unrelenting desire to share culture shifting music. We believe in music driven by human stories, not just viral trends. We started a label to sign artists to the types of deals we would sign.
We founded our management company Bear & Owl in 2016 with a mission to impact the lives of others with sound. With diverse backgrounds, our team is rooted in a hive mind structure to help ensure stability within all aspects of an artist's career. Our ethos is not to convince others about our artists' talent, but to help our artists design projects that speak for themselves.
