Facebook set to challenge YouTube and Spotify with ‘comprehensive music strategy’

March 25, 2017 / No Comments

The prospect of Facebook taking on the likes of Spotify and YouTube in the world of music streaming is no longer a matter of ‘if’ – it’s a matter of ‘when’.

Today, MBW has discovered that Facebook is now recruiting for no less than three new senior music-focused roles at its US head office.

These include a Label Music Business Development Lead, who will be tasked with ‘leading Facebook’s strategy and negotiations’ with music labels throughout the world, as well as ‘collaborating with our product and media partnerships teams to ensure a coordinated and best-in-class licensing structure’.

“Work with Facebook’s product and partnerships teams to ensure a comprehensive music strategy that supports our efforts to make the world more connected.”

Last month, MBW revealed that the social media giant was hiring for a Legal Director of Music Licensing, based at its HQ in Menlo Park, California.

This individual would, we learned, be working closely with Tamara Hrivnak – Facebook’s new global music strategy boss, and a well-respected exec with history at YouTube and Warner Music Group.

Tellingly, the successful candidate will also: ‘Work with Facebook’s product and partnerships teams to ensure a comprehensive music strategy that supports our efforts to make the world more connected on Facebook.’

The position requires 8+ years of experience in music partner relationship management (US and international) plus ‘digital music negotiation experience’.

Facebook is also hiring for two similar roles which focus on music publishing: North America Music Publishing Business Development Lead and International Music Publishing Business Development Lead.

The successful candidate for these two positions ‘will lead Facebook’s strategy and negotiations with international music publishers and societies’ in order to – and sorry to repeat ourselves – ‘ensure a coordinated and best-in-class licensing structure’.

Once again, the chosen recruits will: ‘Work with Facebook product and partnerships teams to ensure a comprehensive music strategy that supports our efforts to make the world more connected on Facebook.’

And, once again, each position requires 8+ years of experience in music partner relationship management – plus ‘digital music negotiation experience for musical compositions’.
