We are Ninja Tune, an independent record label established in 1990. Our office HQ is in London but we operate as a tight-knit and hands-on satellite office in Echo Park, LA. We are searching for interns who are interested in getting a firsthand look at the independent music industry and functions of a record label, starting in January 2019.
The candidate should be creative, have a desire to build a career in the music industry and must currently be enrolled in college, ideally in a Marketing, Music Business or Music Industry program. The job will be heavily focused on analytical research and reporting as well as helping out with day-to-day office tasks. The internship will include close supervision by the small team of employees in the office.
This is an unpaid position and there is no guarantee of a long-term position at the end of the internship term, but our aim is for our interns to transition into stable and successful careers in the music industry as a result of their work with us. Please note that we will compensate interns for their weekly travel expenses, reimbursing either public transportation or gas costs.
