Full Time Job
Wixen Music Publishing, Inc. in Calabasas, CA seeks to add a licensing assistant to its licensing/copyright department.
Who we're looking for
The ideal candidate would have some knowledge of music publishing and be looking to get a solid footing in the music business and grow with us. Schooling in music industry studies and/or playing an instrument are pluses, but are not required. This position is not a work from home position. We require our staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and we will thus require that anyone hired for this position also be fully vaccinated.
Success in this position requires a strong work ethic, attention to detail, a deep desire to learn, and the ability to create and nurture lasting relationships with our TV, film, advertising agency, and record label licensees. If you've always wanted to be a music supervisor, great, however, this isn't the job for you. This is not a creative position.

Draft and track licenses to ensure that they are signed and paid in a timely fashion.
Register songs with the PROs, the copyright office, our sub-publishers, and record labels.
Confirm splits and resolve counterclaims.
Help to maintain our database of songs to ensure information is complete, accurate and up to date

An additional paid week off between Christmas and New Years for performing 16 hours of community service
Company paid profit sharing and defined benefit plans
Guaranteed holiday bonus
A dynamic, varied workday. We believe our clients are best served when they have a single point person who is involved in all aspects of their music publishing rights. And we also believe that doing the same thing over and over day in and day out is a job for robots, not people. You'll have a hand in the entire gamut of music publishing.
You'll gain a broad understanding of the music business as a whole, and a deep understanding of the nuances of music publishing.
A casual office environment in a small, independent, family owned and run, writer-friendly publishing company proudly representing some of the finest music written in the last 90 years.
Healthy work-life balance. We get an early start at 7:30am but call it a day at 4pm so we can spend time with our friends and family.
Salary: From $45,000.00 per year
Paid time off
8 hour shift
Monday to Friday
Supplemental pay types:
We require our staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and we will thus require that anyone hired for this position also be fully vaccinated.
Your potential start date
