What will we offer you in return?

At Armada Music, you’ll be pursuing your passion on an international scale. Calling an inspiring and musical environment home, you’ll bump fists with a young and dynamic team of skilled coworkers. We also offer 25 days off per year to force you to miss us every once in a while, and an appealing pension scheme for when we finally decide to grow up. And if that doesn’t convince you, know that we’ve got our own in-office club for wild office parties and Friday afternoon drinks, a gym open to anyone who wants to blow off some steam and colleagues so fun you probably don’t even want to head back home at the end of the day. And of course, we’re stocked up on the music you love. And we’ll pay you. There’s that too, of course.
