Product Support Specialist

Tone makes royalty processing simple for modern record labels and everyone who earns money from music. Our intuitive software makes it simple for a lean team to process royalties, and our team of royalty experts is always available to provide support to labels and artists of all sizes. We imagine a future where artists have the freedom to pursue their creative vision and the confidence that they’re being paid fairly for their work. Tone is the platform turning that future into reality.

Our mission is to bring a modern finance framework to music professionals, and we’re just getting started.

We’re led by a driven & collaborative team from diverse backgrounds, including senior professionals from Spotify, UTA, Hired, and Apple Music. Our group of investors and strategic advisors includes Carta CEO Henry Ward, Quality Control Music co-founder and COO Kevin "Coach K" Lee, and QED Investors partner Frank Rotman. Our employees include musicians, parents, activists, artists, and more. We’re united by our shared values, commitment to exceptional partnership, and fierce belief in our mission to build solutions that improve the music industry for all.
