Label Manager

Are you passionate about advocating for artists? Will you fearlessly email someone a 3rd time to get the response you're looking for? If yes, then maybe Bayonet Records is looking for you! Bayonet is on the hunt to hire someone who can be the point person for the label founders, artists, artist managers, distributor, PR, and manufacturing plants. Equal parts office manager, A&R, and social media manager--no two days employed at Bayonet look the same.

The ideal candidate will be a wiz at problem solving with an ease around admin tasks. You communicate professionally via email, regularly plot out your day-to-day in Google Calendar, and you already have well-developed strategies for staying organized. You have strong opinions around your taste in music and can speak fluidly on why you like or dislike certain music. You like going to shows and you have a passion for finding new stuff to listen to. You believe that the health of a label starts with the satisfaction of its artists. You are a self-starter who doesn't need constant supervision and you believe that no task is too big or too small!

At least 5 years of full time in the workforce
Admin experience
Strong writing skills
Awareness of the current independent music community
Familiarity with all social media platforms, including TikTok
