Bandcamp’s mission is to create the best possible service for artists and labels to share and earn money from their music, and for fans to discover and enjoy it.
Bandcamp is a global music community where fans directly support the artists they love. We believe that music is an indispensable part of culture and that artists—no matter their identity, community, genre, or size—must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work. Bandcamp welcomes and celebrates all manner of variance in ethnicity, race, culture, gender, and sexual orientation, among artists and our staff.
We’ve developed a hiring process that is based on research about ways to reduce the biases that all of us have. And we work with colleges and universities that have a track record of graduating a high proportion of women and Black/Latinx, with the goal of hiring more under-represented people in tech.
The dedication to diversity and inclusion starts with our CEO and is something we value across Bandcamp. We know that, even as a small company, we have the ability to open doors to people who are under-represented in tech, and that can have a ripple effect. In a recent staff survey, more than four out of five staff said they felt that Bandcamp leadership and individual managers have made diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority.
We’ve been a distributed company since our founding in 2008. Our team of 70+ people is sprinkled throughout the world, and we use a bunch of online collaboration tools to work together across time zones. We value the diversity of backgrounds and experiences that a distributed culture provides, and the flexibility and independence each of us has to set up our own work environments and schedules.
