About Matt

I've had 8+ years experience working in the music industry with a background in business, finance & accounting. I've worked on two previous start-ups and have experience building teams and prototyping from the ground up. In my prior experiences, I've learned that customer development is the most important thing for a start-up to get right. On top of this, communicating with the team on key deliverables and light-weight prototyping is a must when presenting a demo to potential customers. I am an expert in business development, including finance, accounting and legal structure. I love getting in front of customers and learning their behavior patterns to find where their paint points are. I understand the importance of testing the market with little hacks prior to building a product and not scaling before you nail the MVP with a specific customer segment.

I've been working on a start-up for the past year, developing software to better the music industry (specifically the live touring aspect). I've been doing customer development for the past 9 months and have a working prototype that's been tested in the market. I'm looking for a talented software engineer/developer that's passionate about building new technologies for the music industry and that wants to work with smart, incredibly driven people that express a no fail/quit type of attitude.
