How we hire

Our search goes beyond qualifications, because we understand that people have skills and talents that cannot be summed up on a resume alone. We want to hire people who bring unique perspectives, skills, and experiences, and who will challenge the status quo to innovate and improve the way we work.


We are not looking for perfection and we don’t want to hire carbon copies of ourselves. We want you to showcase your authentic, remarkable, and audacious self. Ask questions and most importantly, just be YOU.


We use a structured process to score every candidate on the same universal criteria. This kind of consistency in our hiring process fosters objective decision making.

About us


CD Baby empowers DIY musicians to successfully distribute, publish, promote, and monetize their music around the globe.


We are leveling the playing field for independent musicians and working towards a world where every artist has an equal opportunity to be heard.


Our vision for a more equitable music economy comes from a desire to help artists thrive so they can make more music. What upholds this sense of purpose? Our core values.


We believe all artists should have the freedom to pursue their musical visions without compromise, define success on their own terms, and retain complete control and ownership of their work.


We believe all artists deserve a shot at success, fair compensation, and full visibility into the business side of their careers.


CD Baby is not “music business as usual.” We value genuine connection and enduring relationships with our clients over transactions.


Understanding how artists think and feel helps us connect with them on a human level. We practice empathy in our company culture as well, because we know ingenuity and collaboration flourish when everyone feels heard and respected.


We dream big, look beyond conventions that don’t work, and seek new insights and solutions.


We work to connect diverse artists with more listeners because we believe that more music makes the world a better place.


CD Baby walks our talk and strives to fulfill every promise we make.
