An Insider's view of Stem Disintermedia

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the Stem office is very familial. I come to work everyday and always feel like I can be myself - which I believe is very hard to find at a company nowadays. We tackle projects in the office as a team and I feel very grateful to feel so supported in the day to day!

Natalie

Artist & Label Strategy Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

It is a very interesting time to work at the intersection of music and technology. There are wild inefficiencies across music that can be solved with technology, more specifically financial technology. We are building offerings that can radically change music's market dynamics.

Kristin Graziani

VP of Artist & Label Relations

What makes someone successful on your team?

An ideal team member is someone with excellent communication skills, both internally and externally. An individual's success is often measured by their dependability with their clients and their colleagues. Having a curious mind certainly helps as well!

Bobby Davin

Manager, Artist & Label Relations

What is your vision for the company?

You work here because you believe the industry is broken and that the future has to involve putting more power in the hands of creators. Our vision is an industry that sees the creator as an entrepreneur rather than a disposable product. To make that reality, you have to provide them the tools to place themselves at the nucleus of the ecosystem.

Abhi

VP of Strategy

What projects are you most excited about?

What motivates me day to day here is knowing that my work is helping others pursue their dreams. When our initiatives help an early bet artist become a true star and successful earner it definitely makes the late nights worth it.
