An Insider's view of Stem Disintermedia

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As a working mother of 3 who holds a management position at Stem, it's so refreshing that the organization means what they say when they talk about work life balance! I have been able to work around my families schedules (emergencies, school conflicts, etc.) without exception - all while feeling the full support of my manager, department, and team.


Director of Product

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.


President of Stem Distribution

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I showed up at Stem as a fresh-faced postgrad -- the leadership team here has given me dozens of opportunities to take on exciting new projects, work with incredible clients, and manage crucial functions of the business. I've also been fortunate enough to give some of those same opportunities to rising stars on the team over the years.


VP of Artist & Label Relations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I help my team be creative by providing them with the strategic context they need to drive strategic choices in their work rather than waiting on leadership for guidance. And I provide plenty of space for them to tell me they need more support or more resources.


Head of Marketing

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Making a living as an artist is incredibly challenging, so empowering artists to build their own business using our tools is a really exciting prospect. I'm a big believer that the most impactful cultural and artistic innovations grow out of local arts communities and small businesses, so I'm very enthusiastic about supporting that ecosystem.
