Here at Grooveshark we believe that the impossible can be bridged with the right mix of smart, creative and self-learning people that are inspired by something greater than themselves. We are musicians and music lovers and music is in our blood. Thinking out of the box isn’t just a requirement it’s a fanatical desire. Everyone is here because we love creating and we love knowing that our actions affect tens of millions of people.

We encourage crazy. We encourage trying new things that have never been done before. We push everyone to find better ways of doing what we are doing. All we think about is how to make something great because what we work on has real meaning. We are always thinking of how to make the best audio products in the world for people who make audio and for those who love to listen to it. Most importantly we always rise to the occasion and we never give up even in the harshest adversity.

As great as the product we are building is, if a tree falls and no one sees it, did it fall? Public Relations ensures that everything we do is displayed to the world. It ensures that the true story is told particularly in the face of those who wish to distort it. If you love meeting new people, evangelizing products you love, and telling great stories, then this role could be for you.
